Students live in a youth culture that is fast and loose with personal opinions, tweets, and lifestyle choices. Social media is overflowing with arguments for or against things every day.
As followers of Jesus, it’s important for students to learn how to navigate this maze of ideas so the truth of the gospel is clearly understood and shared by them in a world that badly needs to hear it.
Our #RoarSeries walks students through the process of reaching their friends as their hearts roar with a relentless pursuit for truth. This series will help students to learn, speak, teach, defend, and show the truth of Jesus to their friends.
Week 1 (September 2)
Text: Jonah 3:10-4:11
Topic: Learning the Truth
Big Idea of the Message: When our heart lines up with God’s priorities, we won’t be selective with who we talk to and will learn how to share God’s truth with all people.
Week 2 (September 9)
Text: Ezekiel 2:1-10; 3:5-7
Topic: Speaking the Truth
Big Idea of the Message: No matter the cost, we are called to speak God’s truth even if no one listens.
Week 3 (September 16)
Text: Acts 17:22-31
Topic: Teaching the Truth
Big Idea of the Message: We must protect the integrity of God’s truth while still adapting how we teach it to our culture in a relevant way.
Week 4 (September 23)
Text: Jude 1:3-4
Topic: Defending the Truth
Big Idea of the Message: It is our responsibility to contend for the faith and stand up against those who contradict and criticize God’s truth.
Week 5 (September 30)
Text: 1 Peter 3:8-17
Topic: Showing the Truth
Big Idea of the Message: People hear God’s truth but ignore it all the time. It’s a lot harder, however, to ignore a good deed when done in front of them that points to God’s truth. Showing the truth is a powerful witness.
Our purpose is to fulfill the Great Commandment and the Great Commission as we:
- CONNECT with God and others
- GROW in a small group
- SERVE the church, the community, and the world

CONNECT, GROW, SERVE, AND GO CLASSES – Grades 7-12

On Sundays, students meet for Life Groups at 9:30 AM during first service. The goal of Life Groups is to have a Christ-centered conversation about the life through our current series. We want every student to be connected to a leader and be in a small community of other students who are going through the same things as teenagers. Middle School (grades 7-8) meets in B203, and High School (grades 9-12) meets in B201.
Mag Worship Nights
On Wednesdays, students are encouraged to invite their friends to our midweek service to experience live worship, biblical teaching, fun games, and fellowship at our snack bar from 6:15-8:00 PM. Our midweek exists to provide a safe environment for students to draw closer to God and make new friends. The goal of Mag Worship Nights is to reach the next generation with the gospel and equip them live out their faith. Midweek meets in the Loft (grades 7-12).

Winter Camp provides an affordable weekend experience that will stretch a student’s faith and expand their relationships with their friends. During the winter season, we travel to Camp Pondo to enjoy the snowy conditions of our local mountains. Great speakers share their personal stories and present a life changing message from God’s word. Worship bands allow students to respond to what God is saying, and lead them in special times of renewal and praise. Our leaders help students connect with God and others during cabin time. Winter Camp is like a short version of Summer Camp, but usually with snow. It is tons of fun!
