When and Where?

On Sunday mornings, we have an active Junior High/Senior High Sunday School class that meets at 9:15a.  Afterwards, the students move to the Worship Center for our weekly Worship Gatherings at 10:30a.


On Wednesday nights, from 6:30p to 8:00p, we once again gather for games, fellowship, worship, and study.  Students are welcome to arrive early, to play video games, ping pong, foosball, pool, etc.  


On the first Wednesday of each month, we serve a delicious and (mostly) nutritious meal.  Be sure to follow our Facebook page for regular updates.


Our Student Ministry Director is Bill Weatherford. He is assisted by Associate Director Nathan LaFave and a fantastic group of adult student leaders.

Communicating with the church, specifically parents, is a high priority for the student ministry leadership.  As such, we provide regular updates on our various social media platforms. However, we also recognize that not everybody is on social media.  To receive updates via email, please sign up here.
