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!

Upcoming Series

The NEW study begins Sunday, August 11! During our study of the book of James, we'll watch brief video sessions taught by Francis Chan. He works through the book verse-by-verse, challenging followers of Christ to move beyond a private, intellectual knowledge of God and His Word, to a vibrant faith that impacts every square inch of life.

New study books will be given soon!

the Selah Challenge

Many of the students have accepted The Selah Challenge presented by Pastor Scott. As the students begin their prayer journals, we remember the following truth:

When I pray, I approach God in humble confidence under the authority of Jesus Christ with the expectation He will respond in accordance to His will.

The focus of this challenge is to pray specifically and boldly and noting how God answers our requests. This is all part of the larger practice of SELAH--to pause, reflect, and bow.

At the end of August, students will share what they've seen God do in and through them!

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.
