  • Club 456 (4th,5th, & 6th grade)   

    Meet on Wednesdays at 6:30 on the 3rd floor for a study on the book of Acts.This is an 8-week series that takes students on a journey through the book of Acts. Students will identify the Holy Spirit as God, who is with us, to help us. They will learn to understand the importance of church involvement and some of the principles the church operates by. Along with learning that just like the apostles, the same power that raised Jesus from the dead lives in them. Students will learn about the miraculous things that can be done through prayer. How Peter’s escape from prison can help preteens understand that prayer set people free in the book of Acts and it can do the same today. Learning that their walk with God will change the way they think and act as they fully obey God.

  • Youth Small Groups

    Youth Study Groups
    7th & 8th Grade led by Amy Stinson & Ruth Ann Clay
    9th-11th Grade led by Drew Alexander & John Scelsi
    12th Grade led by Bob Dent & Kristi Edwards

    Don’t you just love a little friendly competition? There’s something about being a part of a team that makes you excited to root for “us” and root against “them.” With people and with God, we’re often quick to see others like our enemies, but God invites us to see things differently. In this 4-week series, we’ll explore the stories of Abraham, Jeremiah, Jonah, Isaiah, and more, as we see how the big story of Scripture reveals that God is for us, we’re called to be for others, God is for our enemies, and Jesus proves that God is for us.
