Student Ministry

Sunday Night

Our student community (grades 7-12) regularly meets Sunday evenings from 6:00pm-8:00pm for the purpose of allowing God to lead us deeper into our
core values: Word, Prayer, Community and Service.

Our vision

We long to be a praying community who encounters the living Word,
being transformed to walk in deeper intimacy with the Father,
and maturing in trust as we depend on His Spirit to lead us.
