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.


High School Opportunities

Explore - Sundays 10am
Explore classes are available to challenge students in their faith. There is a New Believers Class called Starting Points to assist students who are new to the faith or to assist students with foundational principles. We will also have a Bible interpretation class called Hermeneutics to help students understand the Bible as they read it. Classes will run for 6-8 weeks. You can register for those classes below.

Starting Points 


Sunday Morning Live - Sundays 11:30am
This is a time where our high school students can praise and worship together with their peers.  We truly believe this is an opportunity to be creative in how we worship, preach/teach and engage with students. This year, we will be studying the Gospel of John. Come and check it out!!!

Sunday Check-in

High School Journey Groups

HS Journey Groups - Sundays 1 – 3pm
Journey groups meet every other week to walk through the Gospel of John. They meet, eat, and dive deeper into God’s Word together, with a leader walking alongside. There may also be Journey groups meeting at other times and on other days.


Journey Group Registration


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.
