Our Student Ministries exist to plant, grow, and share faith with any and all students.
We plant faith by slowly introducing our students to Jesus, the Bible, fellowship, and the church.
We grow faith by faithfully helping our students understand who Jesus is and what the Bible means for them today.
We share faith by encouraging, empowering, and modeling how students can share the gospel with their peers and serve in their local communities.
We fight to help students learn who they truly are.
We work to make the space, environment, and people a safe place for students to share about themselves and explore who
We pray that all students would come and feel welcomed by our leaders, students, and space.
WHAT WE DO
HIGH SCHOOL BIBLE STUDY
Senior High students meet on Monday nights at 6:00 pm for Bible Study. We start with a light meal and fellowship in the Youth Lounge.
Then we travel to Maumee High School for Young Life Club which is our form of outreach! For directions, please see our Student Ministry Newsletter.
JUNIOR HIGH YOUTH GROUP (GRADES 6-8)
Junior High students gather from 6:15-7:15 pm on Wednesday nights for Bible study and fellowship in the Youth Lounge, along with fun games and activities.
Once a month, we have extra activities for both Junior and Senior High, including karaoke nights, bowling, game nights, and other activities. Look for more information in the weekly Student Ministry Update email.
Every 4 to 6 weeks, we will partner with our local ministry partners in a service project. Exact dates and times will be provided in the weekly Student Ministry Update email.
Students serve with many of our ministry partners, including Mosaic Ministries, Swan Creek, and Maumee City Schools. There are also opportunities throughout the year to serve in other ways in the church.
RETREATS AND SUMMER CAMPS
We have many Student Ministry Retreats happening throughout the year. Some of our retreats include going to Camp Storer, Young Life camps, and Work Camps. Throughout the year, several fundraisers will take place to help offset the cost of these life-changing camps. Look for updated information in the newsletter.
