High School

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

Wednesdays, 6:30-8 p.m., Youth Room (lower level)
Youth Group includes fun large group times with games, friendships, and Bible teaching. Snacks are always a frequent highlight! Small group/LIFE Group discussions focus on important biblical themes that help students develop skills to make personal application.


Sundays, 11 a.m., Youth Room
Discussions are based on biblical worldview teaching presented by the Student Ministries Pastor or Pastoral Intern. On the first Sunday of each month, the discussion is sermon-based so students are encouraged to attend the worship service together with their family; then, come to Connections ready to discuss the sermon.

Middle and high school students meet together at The Orchard – Itasca Campus.
