.: DiscipleNow (7th – 12th grades), President’s Day weekend in February .: DiscipleNow is a high-impact, evangelistic weekend. Students are separated by grade and gender to stay in homes as small groups; they are led by our own college students. It is an amazing event that has brought about major life changes to many students! You do not want to miss this awesome weekend!

Small Groups

Sundays at 9:15 and 10:45 a.m. .: All students gather in the Student Ministry Center (SMC) and are then dismissed to their grade-appropriate small groups.


.: Pulse – Wednesdays @ 6:15 p.m. in the SMC .: Pulse is our mid-week worship service for students that shatters the myth that church is boring. Through interactive teaching by Pastor Deron Henry, a live student band, videos, games and more, students learn the timeless truths of God’s Word and build lasting relationships.

Radical Weekend

.: Radical Weekend (9th – 12th grades), 3rd weekend in November .: Radical Weekend is a biblically-intense weekend. It’s an opportunity for students to take their knowledge of Jesus and His Word to a new and deeper level. Each year, students will focus on different characteristics of a radical Christ-follower.

Service Projects

Students serve within the church by helping in areas such as audio/video support, lighting, puppetry, mission projects, childcare, food service, etc. Contact Mrs. Deb for ways to get involved.

Prayer Support

We believe that prayer is an integral part of the Student Ministry. Our stage in the SMC has a mailbox for students to leave prayer requests/praise reports. Just put them in, raise the flag, and we’ll be praying for your request. You can also contact Pastor Deron or Mrs. Deb directly with prayer requests.
