245 student ministry

For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord,
and ourselves as "your servants" for Jesus' sake.
- 2 Cor. 4:5

We want to see students equipped to live a life of true
discipleship, as deeply devoted followers of Jesus Christ,
and to live, in all things, for "His Glory"!

We help students realize, the only life worth
living is the one you give away.

  • Pursue - SUNDAY NIGHTS

    Begins again on September 10th

    All students 6th-12th grade are invited to join us on Sunday nights from 5:00pm to 7:00pm in the Youth Worship Center. We will begin with dinner from 5:00-5:30, and then students will be separated into their small groups organized by grade and gender from 5:30-7:00. This time is spent "pursuing" the Lord and learning how to model their lives like Christ. We do scripture memory; have weekly reading material for the students, prayer time, accountability, and the students are able to bond with their small groups. During this program the students will learn to pursue God in a new way! We ask that each family sends $20 per Fall and Spring semester to help with the cost of food.


    Begins again August 23rd

    Join us this summer on Wednesday nights in the youth room from 5:00pm to 7:00p.m for this high energy, fun, and exciting time of teaching and outreach. Crazy skits, games, worship and teaching are in store for this awesome time of fellowship!


    This is a Fall semester long study for students who want to dive deeper in their faith. This program is for the student who no longer wants to just learn about the Bible or just seek the hands and feet of Jesus. It is for the student who wants to learn how to walk side by side with Jesus through prayer, meditation, scripture memory, study and discussion. This program will run every Sunday afternoon through the Fall Semester beginning at 4:00p.m. in room 4100. Students must have their parent’s permission that they are ready for such an in-depth walk with the Lord. Please consider all that is required before allowing your student to participate. Registration and a fee is required. 'Many aspire, few attain.'

    Last Class- December 3rd

    Banquet- December 6th

Please consider all that is required before allowing your student to participate in this in-depth walk with the Lord! There will be a "Mystery Trip" for participants upon completion of this course.
