Abide is our Wednesday night worship service which provides a welcoming environment for all students in 7-12th grades. We create a fun atmosphere to allow students to hear Gospel-centered teaching and engage in worship with our praise band. Students enjoy basketball, gaga ball, football, ping pong, and other fun forms of fellowship!
"Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me." John 15:4
Our student camp is a week during the summer full of faith centered fun and fellowship. Every year this week is one to remember for our students and leaders. Everyone is challenged to build authentic relationships, trusting faith and most of all a lifelong commitment to Christ. Youth camp is open to any student who has completed grades 7-12. For more information on this years camp please contact Landon Price.
Life groups are our Sunday morning small groups designed to help students know Christ through Gospel-centered teaching. Students enjoy breakfast and a brief large group time before breaking up into age and gender specific discussion groups.
We understand the message of Jesus was not meant for us to keep to ourselves. We have various service projects and missions opportunities throughout the year—whether that is local apartment outreach, First Priority evangelism, Mission Marshall, or serving at the East Texas Food Bank in Tyler. Our hope is students would go into their spheres of influence and spread the Gospel message.
Youth Covenant Group
We believe when students surrender their lives to Christ, it is important to continue teaching and leading them to follow Jesus. Our Covenant Group ministry is a small group format designed to push students deeper in their walk. We lead them through a 24-week discipleship study over the course of a year. This ministry is for students that desire to dig deeper and become a frontline leader to reach others for the Gospel! We meet on Sunday nights at 6:15 in host homes
