Taking your faith in Christ to the next level.

When it comes down to it, student ministry is about ownership – it’s about taking that next step in one’s faith journey. As the primary faith influence, parents play a vital role in this process. Our job is to come alongside parents and partner with them in impacting a student’s life. We provide environments where students encounter Christ holistically in order to respond more clearly to His leading.

While our programs play an integral part, relationships are what matter most. Authentic faith occurs when every teenager has a place to belong and people who believe in what Christ can do in them. Hence, leading small becomes the foundation for leading big for the kingdom of God.

Summer Weekly Program

Summer RENEW

Summer RENEW meets on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:45 AM before the 11:00 AM service in the Youth Suite (F329). Summer RENEW is a time of growing our faith through table discussions, fellowship to nurture community, games to build connections through play, and unlimited pop-tarts. This program is for all 6th-12th grade students.

Upcoming Events

Wednesdays: Service Project

Starting June 5, 2024. Each Wednesday during the summer (except for June 19 and July 3rd) we will be passing out lunches to those in our community that need a little extra help to make sure kids don’t go hungry because they are not in school. We will start at 5:30 PM and end at 7:00 PM at Lula Dobbs Hall at McEachern UMC. Bring sunscreen and a smile as we get an opportunity to put our faith into action. After we are done serving, youth and parents are invited to join us at Mi Mexico for dinner. Each student is responsible for their own transportation and payment for food.

VBS is June 9-11 from 5-8 PM. Youth and adults are welcome to come and volunteer to help out. Please use the link here to register to be a volunteer at VBS!
