Sunday Night Student Ministry 6:30 – 8:30pmThe first component of a student’s long-term growth and success in their faith is being invested in a large community of students, where the word of God is shared, praise to God happens in various forms and fellowship, and the mutual encouraging of one another is of primary concern (Hebrews 10:25). Our Sunday night gatherings function as this Biblical mandate and essential front door for so many of our student’s first experiences with Christ. This is where people continue to connect and be reminded by others of their value and importance in Christ. This is also were questions initially arise about faith and life.
During the school year, junior and senior high students gather Sunday nights for jam-packed fun. During our hang out time, you can sit down for some intense board games, play a round of pool, throw the football around, or sip Starbucks espresso at one of our café tables. Foyer opens at 5:30pm for games, prayer and hang out time.
Our student-based worship team kicks off the night with a mixture of contemporary, praise and worship. Then students separate for age-appropriate, biblical, applicable, dynamic and meaningful messages from trained speakers. And you never know what you’re going to see in the sanctuary; llamas, Pastor Nathan’s car, a road made of sand, and so much more.
Sunday nights are designed to be open and inviting to non-Christians, Christians of all backgrounds, and everyone else. Students who want to get involved can take on responsibilities such as audio/visual, espresso, greeting, worship, announcements, video, photography, and occasionally speaking.
Theme NightsTheme nights happen once a month. Each theme is orchestrated throughout the entire night, from what students wear, to what the decor, talks and music will be geared around. Each theme night involves a game of epic proportion - life size Angry Birds, obstacle courses, human milkshakes and more. Each night will be solid top notch, so you don’t have to worry about if your friends will like it.
Summer BlastsDuring the summer we like to shake things up a bit. Our Wednesday nights are off-site at individual homes, where we play volleyball, sometimes have swimming available, eat dinner together, and have a brief but relevant talk by different leaders and older high school students.
