Our mission is to lead middle and high school students to Learn, Love, Live Jesus!

Life Groups

Wednesday Nights 7 PM

Our Life Groups are organized by grade and gender and meet weekly to pray, connect with each other and share what God is doing in their lives.


This fall we are concentrating on 4 key areas:

  • Spending Time with God
  • Spending Time with Others
  • Know and Use Your Gifts
  • Share Your Story

    Point Club

    Sunday Nights 6 PM-7:30 PM

    Join us on Sunday Nights for a time of fun, fellowship, worship and a Christ-centered message. We believe Students need space to hang out with friends and a place where they can invite their unchurched friends to see that church is not boring! Quite the contrary - We believe that a life with Jesus is life to the full!


    • 1st Sunday of the Month - Chapel Night with Student Testimonies
    • 2nd and 3rd Sunday of the Month - Themed Club Nights Underground
    • 4th Sunday of the Month - Off

    I know now more than ever that our youth have the ability to change our culture for Christ right where they are today.

    In fact, I claim this for my children as I pray for them. “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurable more than all we ask or imagine according  to his work at is at work within us.” Ephesians 3:20-21.
