During the School year, Student Ministry meets Sunday Evenings from 5:30pm - 7:30pm at the Vandalia Campus. We also meet Sunday mornings at 10:00am - 10:30am in the Hangar Cafe.
We exist to be bold believers who can KNOW and OWN our faith.
That’s why we create environments for students to belong no matter where they’re at spiritually. Whether they’ve never been to church or they’re a growing follower of Jesus we want to help students connect and grow in their faith. In every Sunday night gathering, there’s an element of Contagious Fun, Engaging Worship, Biblical Teaching, and Small Groups.
Contagious Fun: Fun is the love language of students. Fun over time builds connection. We want students to smile, laugh, and have fun with one another to help build connection and community.
Engaging Worship: We believe that all of life is worship, but there is something significant about music and singing that can reach down deep into our souls. That’s why we seek to engage students with relevant music that draws their hearts and minds to the God who made them and sent Jesus to save them. We place a high value on having students play and sing on our worship team. That’s why every week you’ll mostly see teens on stage leading their peers in worship!
Biblical Teaching: Every week we will open up the Scriptures to teach God’s timeless truths in timely ways. There’s a lot of things competing for the hearts and minds of today’s teens and we want to continually point them to Jesus as the only one who truly satisfies. Jesus is the Hero of the Bible and he will be the Hero of every message.
Small Groups: We also believe that best way for students to know God is to put them in relationships with other people who know God. That’s why our Small Groups are the most important thing we do. They provide a safe place for students to belong in a community of their peers with a consistent, caring adult leader who will invest in their lives.
