Colossians 2:5, "Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him,"

Through our Student Ministries programs, we seek to engage students in encountering God and impacting their world throughout their journey of faith. We strive for each student to become a Disciple of Christ, mature in their path with Him and others, and be mobilized in their schools and their world.

Our Sunday Program, Encounter, meets on:
Sunday mornings at 9:30 for fellowship and 10:30am for Sunday School

Students have the opportunity of worshipping together, engaging in lessons applicable to their lives, and enjoying engaging games that encourage relationships and unity.
