We bring students together to Experience God and learn about ways to Expand His kingdom. We utilize fun games, passionate worship and challenging teachings to enhance their faith and dependence on God.

Midweek

High School IGNITE

IGNITE- Tuesday Nights- 6:45pm-8:30pm (sometimes a little later...)

The youth group allows for students from all backgrounds to connect through games, challenging bible-based messages, and small groups.  Pastor Joshua Bennett is phenomenal as he leads our Tuesday night outreach.  I ask that you prayerfully consider if this is something your high school student could attend.



Upcoming Events

Parent Meeting | January 13

Sunday January 13, 1pm-3pm, Robinson Chapel

Parent meetings are essential if a youth ministry intends to develop a partnership between parents, students, youth leaders and staff. This meeting is just that. It is an opportunity for our SM staff and leaders to partner with parents about how to invest in the lives of students. Join us as we share information about what we are doing and experiencing in the lives of students. We are also looking to hear from you, the parents, about what you are experiencing with students. This way we can learn from one and another and partner to help students grow in faith and in relationship with parents and staff. 

Registration

Baptism Class | Febuary 3
