Student Ministries
We believe students are the church of today.
Our goal is to create an environment where teens can participate in Christian fellowship, learn through a deeper relationship with God, & come together to worship while serving the community through mission. 
It is our prayer that through Fellowship, Learning, Worship, and mission that our teens will grow closer with one another and deepen their faith and devotion to being a disciple of Jesus Christ.  
Student ministry events are open to students in grades 6-12.
