High School Ministries

Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. 
— Colossians 1:28

The high school key verse challenges students to take seriously a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, seeking to grow in maturity of faith.

Youth Group/LIFE Group

Sundays, 10:45 a.m., High School Room
Small group discussions are based on biblical worldview teaching presented to the large group by the Student Ministries Pastor or Pastoral Intern.
