Student Community Group

Students in sixth through twelfth grades are invited every Sunday from 2:30 to 4:30 PM!

Student Community Group provides a unique opportunity for students to connect with their peers as they study and apply Scripture. Throughout their time together, students can learn how to serve, grow in community, mature in their understanding of the Bible, and foster a deeper relationship with Jesus.

Students are also invited to connect with each other during the week through serving and fun activities such as game nights, annual camping trips, and more!

Current Series: 1 John

The Apostle John wrote this letter to believers near Ephesus in Asia Minor to respond to false teachings within the Church and to encourage spiritual growth in believers.

Each week, students study a particular passage, work through study guide questions, listen to a brief lesson, and discuss heart-level application questions.

Due to the cancelation in March, the schedule for our 1 John study has been modified. Get the updated schedule here!

Sunday, June 9

Now that we've finished 1 John, the students have a turn to share with the following three questions:

  1. What verse or passage was encouraging or helpful to you? Why?
  2. What attribute of God stood out most to you during this study? What did you learn about Him?
  3. How has the Holy Spirit used 1 John to convict you of sin or help you be on guard against future sins?

Missed last week? Catch up with a summary of 1 John 5:13-21 here.

Starting June 16

The students will begin a six-week study in the Psalms:

Psalm 3 - The Lord is My Shield

Psalm 16 - The Lord is My Portion

Psalm 18 - The Lord is My Deliverer

Psalm 23 - The Lord is My Shepherd

Psalm 27 - The Lord is My Stronghold

Psalm 92 - The Lord is My Rock

What to Expect

New to Students? Group begins at 2:30 PM every Sunday. Keep reading to learn more about what you can expect during our time together.

  • Connect with Serving

    God has gifted students with unique gifts, abilities, and talents, and we want to enable students to discover their areas of strength and potential within a ministry context. Each Sunday begins with serving as students and leaders work together in preparation for Sunday's church gathering.

    Students also have the opportunity to serve in their community and travel on mission trips to the Dominican Republic.

  • Connect with Each Other

    Building relationships with other students and adult group leaders is a key component of community. Student Community Group provides a sense of belonging as we set aside time for connecting through games, snacks, conversations, and activities.

    This belonging is deepened as students spend time together during the week through shared meals and game nights.

  • Connect with God's Word

    We believe that God has spoken and revealed Himself directly through His Word, the Bible, and this time of connecting with His Word will teach students how to engage the Scripture, see Jesus throughout all of Scripture, and to glean truths and principles from its pages.

    Each week, students are asked to read a specific passage and answer study questions to prepare for a lesson taught by one of the adult group leaders.

  • Connect as Groups

    Students will then separate into smaller groups according to age and gender to apply the biblical truths they have studied and learned that week. Led by the group leaders, this time allows space for vulnerability and specific application.

    This small-group time includes heart-level application questions, discussion, gospel-centered encouragement, and prayer.
