Sometimes it takes a party to reach out to our neighbors.
Students need two important nouns so they can anchor their lives to something solid. They need a person and they need a place (Joiner, 2014). Small groups are our way of providing a consistent gathering of a few for the purpose of growing in their relationship with God and each other. Our small group leaders are the ones who choose to invest in a few to encourage authentic faith. We shape student’s faith by connecting them to an adult who will be present in their life. Early on, we realized that the true span of care for 1 adult is 5 students and this made the need for small groups and dedicated small group leaders even more important. Small group leaders are the key to our process of long-term discipleship.
We think there is something holy about sharing a meal together-Jesus set this example by frequently eating with sinners and even in his last moments were spent around the table with his disciples. Therefore, we are offering Snack Supper at 5:30pm right before 608 each Sunday. This gives students a chance to share food and time together before we worship. To keep things simple everything on the menu will cost a dollar.
We love this question! If you are interested in volunteering with our Student Ministry, please contact Heather Allen or Miles Barnes and we will be excited to pass along the information and setup a time to talk!
Confirmation is a study designed for students and their parents. Confirmation is a rite of the church, symbolizing your child’s personal decision to become a follower of Jesus by intent. As a confirmed follower of Jesus, she/he assumes personal responsibility for her/his faith, which includes becoming a full member of the community of faith. The class begins in January and ends in May each year. There is also a parent class taught by our Senior Pastor, Dr. Steve Dodson.
