When & Where

Students in grades 6-12 meet together on Wednesday nights from 6-8pm. The Doors open at 5:30, that way, if parents want to attend a Life Group, they will have ample time to drop their kids off and be on time for the group.

what happens at a wednesday night gathering?

A typical youth night starts with just eating and hanging out. We'll then do a fun activity together to begin pulling our attention in the same direction. After we have a bit of fun together we will focus our attention on the passage at hand. We currently have a pretty small group and will approach it more like a discussion than a sermon. We will ask questions about the passage and look for answers. This is a time that the leaders can present questions to the students as well as a time where the students can ask about things that stood out to them in the passage as well.

What we believe

Teens today face many different challenges. Not only are they bombarded with distractions and temptations everywhere they look, but misguided philosophies and false doctrine also saturate their culture. Rooted Student Ministry desires to see students planted firmly in the foundation of Jesus Christ. We believe the Scripture in Colossians 2:6-7 that says: "Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving." When rooted in Christ, students will bear fruit, walk with confidence and stand strong when the storms of life come their way.

Teenagers play a vital role in the church body. They are not “the church of tomorrow” as is often stated. Teens are the church of TODAY. 2 Timothy 4:12 says “Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity”. This is the attitude we strive to teach our students. They need to know they are valued and can be used by God at any age in life for the purpose of His glory.
