At the beginning of the new year, we are doing an exciting new series called All-In: Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength. It will be on the Greatest Commandment known as the “Shema.” It was first given to us by Moses (Deuteronomy 6:4-6). Moses commanded the households to teach these truths to their families and pass it on to the next generation. Jesus quoted the Shema and said it was the greatest commandment to keep (Mark 12:28-31). Therefore, we want to teach your student these truths and give them the opportunity to begin a new decade focused on loving God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength.
We need your active participation and spiritual involvement, so be in prayer and bring your student to church on Sundays and Wednesdays. We will conclude this series with a special Winter Camp recap on February 5th at Mag Worship Nights. We pray that your student will desire to be all in for Jesus in 2020!
THE SERIES. A religious man once asked Jesus, “What’s the greatest commandment?” Jesus quickly quoted the Shema and taught it to everyone as the most important commandment in the Bible. The Shema teaches believers to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself (Deuteronomy 6:4-6; Mark 12:28-31). In the time of Moses, the generation who first heard the Shema struggled with faithfulness, and as a result, wandered in the wilderness for 40 years with bitterness. Israel was not all in on God’s promise and wanted to go back to Egypt. If you fast forward to the time of Jesus, the generation who knew the Shema forgot about it and struggled with legalism. Israel was not all in on God’s promise and wanted their things back from Rome. One generation struggled with faith, and another generation struggled with control. When they failed to be all in on God’s promise, they missed out on all that God has in store for them. Here is the series breakdown:
Week 1 (1/5) = All Your Heart
Week 2 (1/12) = All Your Soul
Week 3 (1/19) = All Your Mind
Week 4 (1/26) = All Your Strength
Week 5 (2/5) = Winter Camp Recap at Mag Worship Nights
It is no accident that Jesus quoted the Shema because it was the gospel. Our job is to love the Lord because of his love that was poured out for us on the cross. Jesus gave everything for us, so we are called to give everything back to him. He calls for a holistic approach, not a compartmentalized acknowledgment. He wants us to go all in and all out for the All in All (Ephesians 1:21-23).
GOAL. It’s easy to admire Jesus, but it’s harder to obey Jesus. All your desires, passions, emotions, relationships, thoughts, beliefs, habits, plans, character, identity, gifts, and talents need to be given to over to Jesus. The gospel costs you nothing, but it demands everything. Following Jesus cannot only be based on your emotions. Following Jesus cannot only be based on your knowledge. Following Jesus cannot only be based on your character. Following Jesus cannot only be based on your skills. No matter where you are in life, God wants all of you right now. This series will help teenagers live out the greatest commandment and be all in for Jesus in 2020.

Our mission is to lead students to become authentic followers of Jesus. Magnolia Students want teenagers to connect with God and others, grow in a life group, serve in the church, and go share the good news. We accomplish this by planning events that align with our four purposes and providing discipleship courses for life development. Once a student completes all four discipleship courses, they receive a special certificate and are given specific ministry opportunities.

Student Connect – Sunday, March 8, 12:30-3:00pm – Register HERE
Student Go – Wednesday, May 6, 6:30-8:00pm – Register HERE
Student Serve – TBA
Student Grow – TBA

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 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.

If you would like to sign up your student for a Life Group, please email us at


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 6:30-8:00 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 to live out their faith. Midweek meets in the Loft (grades 7-12).

Mag Worship Nights exist to reach the next generation. Our student midweek provides a safe environment for teenagers to draw closer to God, grow in their faith, and meet new friends. Each night features live worship, fun games, relevant messages, and food at our snack bar. To see what it looks like, check out our hashtag #MagWorshipNights on Instagram.

Students live in the most connected culture in history, but so many of them are disconnected from God and others. There is a great amount of noise around them. Yet, God is present. God is speaking. God is reaching out to the youth. God wants students to be still and know that He is real and He loves them.

The Exalted Student Experience is a FREE five-day event for teenagers in the Inland Empire. Each night focuses on topics in youth culture to help teenagers know their purpose. The event features local youth speakers, live music, concerts, food vendors, games, and outdoor activities.

Date: July 6-10, 2020 (6:00-9:00 PM every night)
Registration opens April 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!
