At its heart Student ministry is no different than any other ministry. Since this is true, the Student Ministry is challenging young people to live holy lives pleasing to God, and train them to become leaders of the Church. This is done by fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) in which believers are commanded by Christ to make disciples and teach them to obey his commands. The Student Ministry wants more than just Students “accepting Christ” (which is the beginning); we want a total life transformation! There is a difference in “believing” and “living” when it comes to the Christian life, and the desire is for our students to LIVE IT!
Love is what sets the Christian apart (John 13:34-35). The Student Ministry wants to model and teach the students the love that God has lavished upon us; his unconditional, transforming, supernatural love!
We do not want Students to have a “religious experience.” Our desire is for students to experience the transforming work of Christ in an ongoing way. Its not enough to have ‘fire insurance’ our students need to grow into fully committed followers of Jesus Christ!
We want to see the Students’ lives becoming more consistent with the 8 Characteristics of Fully Committed Followers of Jesus

When you come into the Youth Room for Sunday Mornings you will find a friendly atmosphere. You will hear students catching up about the weekend, some will be drinking coffee, others will have a snack. We have tables set up and teach everyone together. Each table has an adult leader who guides discussion about the lesson.
B.L.A.S.T. stands for Building Lives Around Scriptural Truths. This is a way of training, developing, and taking students (grades 7-12) deeper in their walk with Christ.
This program has changed from previous versions of it. We are now having open small groups for guys and girls on Sunday Nights @6:30pm. Our current study is on how to have a “Christian Worldview.”
Christian worldview (also called Biblical worldview) refers to the framework of ideas and beliefs through which a Christian individual, group or culture interprets the world and interacts with it.
“The Gathering” is what we call our Wednesday Night worship. It is a time for the whole body of Christ to gather, from age 5-105, and worship God. The worship time is led by children, teens and adults. Everyone contributes to make it a truly unique experience. There is song, scripture and a short teaching. After the worship time everyone goes to age specific small groups.
Here is the Schedule:
Dinner @5 — each week dinner is served. Students–grades 7-12–are prepaid for the meal (otherwise it $4 a person with a $20 family cap).
Worship @6 — see above!
Youth Small Groups @6:30pm to 7:15pm — After worship the All Students move to their small group time.
Youth Games / Other @7:15 to 8 — Around 7:15 we shift gears. Students can participate with other ministries that are practicing/meeting, play a game related to our lesson, or they can head home with mom and dad.
