We will equip and encourage middle and high school students to

clearly and effectively explain why they believe what they believe. And

you'll be prepared to respond to some of the worldviews you encounter.

ENLIGHTEN: High School & Middle School, Sundays from 9:00-10:00 am in the Life Center

Enlighten is a great time for students to dig deeper into God's Word and explore their faith.

High school and middle school have their own classes.


ENCOUNTER: High School & Middle School, Wednesdays 6:30-8:30 pm in the Life Center

Encounter is a mid-week hangout for students to encounter God.

It is a time for them to be themselves, learn about their faith, ask questions, 

have fun and worship freely from the stresses of everyday life.

EXTREME: 2nd Friday of the month 8:00-11:00 pm in the Life Center

Come enjoy a live DJ, lots of food, open gym, video games, and giveaways.
