Students

REACH THE LOST. MAKE DISCIPLES.

We are dedicated to and passionate about seeing youth fall in love with Jesus and grow in their faith. Our hope is that in all the activities and opportunities provided, an encounter with the living God is always presented and lifelong friendships are made with other students from across the city.

SUNDAY SCHOOL

Each Sunday at 9:15, dedicated leaders are teaching our students in God’s Word. We meet in a large group to start, then divide into grade-specific small groups to break down the lesson and discuss real life application. We are currently using The Gospel Project curriculum, going chronologically through the Bible.

SUNDAY NIGHTS

Community Groups are designed to build relationships with one another, have fun, and talk about Jesus with other students. The guys of the student ministry meet together and the girls of the student ministry meet together in another location. Community Groups are from 6:45-8 pm are located in various places around town. 

MONDAY NIGHTS

FirstStudents University is a time for the student that wants to learn more about the Bible, Christianity in culture, and many other in-depth topics. FSU meets on Monday nights in the Annex Building (Library) beside the church from 6:45-8 pm.

WEDNESDAY NIGHTS

Impact is our Wednesday Night service for middle and high school students (grades 7-12). We gather each week at 6:00 pm in the LOFT to worship God and study His Word together. Come early for optional pizza and hang time ($1 a slice, $2 a combo).

SPECIAL EVENTS

We host and participate in a variety of special events throughout the year, including DiscipleNow, summer camps, mission trips, discipleship groups, and various social activities throughout the year.
