180 Student Ministry   

Sunday Nights    ::    6:00-8:00 pm

Students (7th – 12th) gather in the YMC for games, food, worship, teaching, and discussion

       “180” connotes a turnaround…a life change.  That is exactly what the Student Ministry Leadership Team prays and plans for this ministry.  It is our desire to see Sunday Nights as a time where students and their friends come together to begin or to continue experiencing the grace that God offers to us through Jesus Christ. 

        6:00 -7:00 pm – All students are together for a time to hangout, enjoy snacks, play games, and worship.

        7:00 -8:00 pm – Jr. High students are in small groups and Sr. High students are in large groups. Jr. High groups are gender-based, guys with guys and girls with girls, and led by our Jr. High youth leaders. They meet in the main church.

        Sr. High remains in the YMC for large group teaching and discussion.  Our teaching series is generally a month long and focuses on relevant topics. 

 

Student Life

Sunday Morning    ::    9:00 - 10:30 am

Jr. High (7th & 8th) students meet in the YMC. Students in these grades are a part of our Milestone 4 process.  A key component of Milestone 4 and, therefore, a special focus of this class is understanding our identity in Christ. 

For the 2013-2014 school year [Sept – April], we are utilizing the Fuel curriculum to help students walk through the major stories of the Old Testament.  

Sr. High (9th-12th)  students are encouraged to join their friends and leaders in the center front section of the worship service.  On your way in, don't forget to stop by the Coffee Connection.  

 

Home Groups

Sr. High Small Groups

Students (9th – 12th) meet in host homes for gender-based groups led by Sr. High youth leaders.

Home Groups are 8 weeks long and are offered in the Fall [Oct.-Nov.] and in the Winter [Feb.-Mar.].   The essence of Home Groups is to play together and pray together with God’s Word as the center of both.  In order to be in a group, students will need to sign-up at either a student ministry event or by  contacting the student ministry office.
