Growth in community
where students can grow in relationship & faithStudents in Middle School & High School encounter Christ, grow spiritually, and serve others through weekly Youth Groups, Faith Group Gatherings, retreats, outreach events, and service opportunities.
Gatherings & Updates
FAITH GROUPS: Faith groups are small groups of students who meet in homes weekly to grow in their relationship with God and others through bible study, fellowship and fun. These groups may be single gender or co-ed and are often co-led by adults who love students and are committed to helping them explore their faith through dynamic relationships. We have Faith Groups for each campus, if you would like to connect to these groups please contact Angie Gerrard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ELEVATE TOGETHER: Elevate Together is our student worship night! It’s a time of fun and games, time together, and of course, worship. Whether it be through a game of dodge ball, sharing in snacks, or singing together, we get to worship in all that we do, and have fun at the same time! These happen largely the 3rd Thursday of each month, but check our events page as we occasionally have to adjust for holidays.
CONNECT & SERVE: We believe that students are a vital part of our Sunday morning experience. We offer a time for them to connect with one another each Sunday around our service times. This is an opportunity to catch up weekly, grab a snack and become part of the larger Church community through service in our vibrant ministry teams (worship, FAITHKIDS greeting team) or simply joining in our student section during the weekly service. We also offer lots of opportunity to connect through fun and service events; like bowling, 30 hour famine, game nights and more. Check out our events page to see what is coming ahead in Elevate!
Here are some upcoming events to save the date for! You can click on each event to learn more about it.

More Ways to Get Involved
Retreats are weekend experiences where our students unplug from the pressures of daily life to dive deep into God’s word and grow in community with each other through worship, a series of messages, and unforgettable games. In September, our High Schoolers attend Camp Brookwoods and in January or February our Middle and High schoolers join with hundreds of other students from New England for the Deep Freeze winter retreat at Camp Berea. Registration for this retreat will be on our event page near the time of the event.
Every summer, our High School students travel to communities in need, rotating between locations of disaster relief, rural development, urban ministry, and to other nations. On these trips, we partner with local churches, non-profits, and ministries to share God’s love and offer tangible aid to those in need. Find out more at our Jan Information Session.
During summer, Middle School students can register for a week at Camp Berea to build lasting friendships, worship with great musicians, and learn from passionate speakers – all while having the time of their lives!
Teens who have expressed a personal relationship with Jesus can publicly acknowledge their commitment to Christ through baptism. Believer’s baptism is available for kids and teens ages 9 and older.
If you have any questions or don’t know if you’re ready to experience baptism, contact Emma Campbell at email@example.com for more information.
