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.

weekly events

  • Pursue - SUNDAY NIGHTS

    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!


    Starting August 31st

    Please join us on Wednesday nights for dinner from 5:15-6:00pm in the Life Center, then stay for Relent from 6:00-8:00, located in the Youth Worship Center. This is a high-energy led worship by the Youth Band and a message delivered by a member of the Youth Staff. This "relenting of the self" allows the students to draw near to God through many different avenues: prayer, song, reading of the scripture, delivery of the message, and more.


    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. This program is for the student who truly wants to seek the Face of the Lord. 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 the Youth Worship Center . 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.'
