Know Jesus, Live Jesus & Share Jesus

Students

Our heart is to see students KNOW Jesus, LIVE Jesus, & SHARE Jesus

We desire to see students gain ownership of their faith and to truly experience how much fun it is to live the life God intended. Students are invited to come experience relevant and life-changing Biblical teaching and worship, make new friends, and learn from caring adult leaders.

What To Expect at Our Weekly Gatherings

Each week, during the school year, students gather at our midweek programs to hang out, make new friends, and play totally ridiculous games. Afterward, we have lessons and small groups which build into the whole student, helping them grow emotionally and spiritually while developing positive character. All of our programming is free and open to the entire community, so come and check us out!
