Student LIFEgroup

9:00 and 10:30 AM Sundays, 3rd Floor

We have LIFEgroups for students to connect in community with other students their age. At 9 am, there is a LIFEgroup for grades 6th - 12th. And at 10:30 am, for those who prefer a more intimate small group experience, there is a Middle School & High School LIFEgroup. At both hours, students first gather in room 300 for a ten-minute hang time with coffee & donuts, and then for what we call The Sunday share. We have had professional athletes, state champions, poets, and people from our church share how they are living out their faith. We offer both hours to better serve our families and to ensure everybody has the opportunity to b both in a LIFEgroup and in worship with their family every Sunday morning.

Please enter the building at the East entrance or from the lobby. A Red banner will indicate the student entrance.

Current Teaching

We utilize "Explore the Bible" curriculum on Sunday mornings because we want students to do just that - explore The Bible! Our LIFEgroup time is dynamic and purposeful in helping your student make their faith their own. Each student who comes to LIFEgroup is equipped with a daily discipleship guide, and trained how to to use it.

Student Camp
