Small Groups for Students meet weekly and are offered on Sunday mornings at 9:00am and 11:00am. Currently, we use NavPress Student Ministry curriculum that is introduced in a large group setting in the Worship Room of the Student Building, and is followed by study and application in Small Groups throughout the building. These groups are divided by both age and gender.
On Wednesday night, a slight variation of this format is offered through large group worship and teaching that leads to application in Small Group settings. These gatherings are centered around the current message series preached in our corporate Worship Gatherings on Sunday mornings. Wednesday nights begin at 6:30pm and end at 8:00pm.For a list of our current Student Ministry Volunteers, click here.
What is a Small Group?
A Small Group is made up of teens that meets weekly for the purpose of life application, community building, and accountability... in other words, discipleship! There are students of the same gender and grade who meet together weekly with an adult leader. They study the Bible, hold each other accountable, serve together, and even hang out at other times in the week.
Each Small Group has an adult leader. These leaders help students become more like Christ and to better understand how to be a disciple-maker. A Small Group environment helps teens build biblical community. Not only do they get to study God's Word together and encourage one another, they build strong, biblical relationships through fellowship and serving.
What is the difference between being a disciple and a disciple-maker?
Discipleship is a lifelong process. Christ followers are constantly seeking Christ through His Word, prayer, and time with other believers. As they become doers of His Word and begin to apply His teachings to their lives, these disciples will begin to lead and encourage others to do the same, continuing the process of discipleship by multiplying the Gospel, thus becoming disciple-makers.
