student Ministries

Our kids and students ministries exist so that your child can come to know and experience God.

The God who made them, who loves them and who wants to give them life. Our desire is that your child will grow with us, knowing and loving God.

Our student ministries are for 6th through 12th grades.

Junior High


Our junior high ministry is a fun and welcoming place for students in grades 6th through 8th. We know that friends are important to all junior highers and  we try to foster deep relationships with friends, old and new, that share your faith in Jesus. We welcome any student that wants to learn more about God and wants to take the next step in their faith.

We meet every Sunday morning at 9:00a and every Wednesday night at 7:00p in the Junior High Room, located in the Student Center.

High School


Welcome to Real Life High School Ministry! We are here to help high school students find and follow Jesus Christ. We get our name from Colossians 3:

"Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all His glory." 

We know that the only real life is found in Jesus Christ and we are desperate for our friends and family to have that life. Now don’t get us wrong. We aren’t perfect and we don’t have it all together. The difference is that we live for Jesus and Jesus lives in us. You are more than welcome to come just as you are and find out more about what Jesus has done for you.

We meet every Sunday morning at 9:00a and every Wednesday night at 7:00p in the High School Room, located in the Student Center.
