What’s your plans for the summer? Hoping to hang out with friends? Eat some delicious food? Stay up way too late? Do something crazy? Maybe even take a trip? If that sounds like you then you need to come on the Road Trip! The Road Trip is a 7 day trip designed by our Student ministry team (with the input of our students) to provide a fun trip with amazing experiences and some great opportunities to grow in our faith.

Scavenger Hunt – Parent Edition

August 4th – Info Coming

Thrift Store Challenge

Date and Info Coming


9:30-10:30am – Student Ministry Room 210

We all need a little of encouragement.  A little fire lit under us to get up and moving.  Every Sunday morning at 9:30 we get up, after sleeping in a little bit, to ignite a fire in our lives.  We talk and discuss ways to help us live our lives on fire for Jesus, to whom we worship, pray, and hear from through Scripture. Whether you consider the student ministry your second family or are walking in for the first time, high school and junior high students gather for a fun time of growth and community   New faces are always welcome to join in on the celebration!


12:00-4:00pm – Jr. High & High School

The Break takes place immediately following our second service. It is a time for our students to hangout. Play some nerf wars, dodgeball, or whatever they come up with. Watch a movie together. Go sledding or have a snow ball fight. The opportunities are endless. Some of our students even bring their instruments and play together.  Our student ministry is made up of students from multiple school districts and over a dozen different schools and the BREAK provides an opportunity to just hang out. Cost is only $3 and lunch is provided.


4:00-5:30pm – Jr. High & High School

Communities are a wonderful thing.  A seemingly random group of people who are brought together because of one commonality.  StuCo (Student Community) is just that, a group of wonderfully amazing, unique, and fun students who come together because we have one thing in common, Jesus!  We strive to provide clarity to God’s Word and His will in the students’ lives, and we have a lot of fun doing it! The purpose of StuCo is for students to GROW in their understanding and ability to respond to difficult and relevant issues or topics as Christ’s disciples. Topics and questions are addressed, discussed, and researched so students are prepared to defend their faith in Jesus Christ. It’s a great time to come, have some fun, and connect and be part of StuCo.
