On Sunday mornings we meet from 10:30am-12:15pm upstairs in room 204. It is meant to be a connecting point for new students as well as a reconnecting point for our current students. The morning includes a hangout time, worship and relevant biblical teaching.
Wednesday Nights: IGNITE
IGNITE occurs most wednesdays throughout the fall and spring semester from 7pm-9pm. There are 3 rythms to IGNITE (check out our Student Ministry Calendar for dates), one is LIT which is a connecting point for current students and a non threating touch pioint for those who are seeking God or completely disconnected from him. We will have food, high energy worship, and games at LIT. The second Rhythm is FIRESIDE; this is a place for students who want to go deeper in their faith, who want to connect to an awesome youth shepherd/mentor and talk about real life and God with their friends. We will have food, worship in a more intimate setting, Relevant Biblical teaching, often times topical in nature, and small groups. Our last rhythm is called EQUIP. This is a time for students to connect and grow in their faith by learning practical skillsets and tools. Here they will learn how to share their faith, how to read the Bible and much more.
Throughout the semester we have planned events every month, in order to help build better community and engagement among our students. Events range from retreats, to service projects, to just having fun together.
Global Outreach (GO) Trips
GO Trip teams are made based on application and interviews. We raise tax deductible donations individually and as a team for these trips. There is a parent meeting in November with the GO Trip location reveal for the upcoming summer trips.
The local trip this year is GO Austin (Austin, Texas) with our Dessau church plant pastor doing relational evanglism and Bible Clubs.
The regional trip this year is GO NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana) with UrbantImpact Ministries. With UrbanImpact we'll be leading Kids Club VBS, participating in basketball ministry and Challenge Circle time at their evening park ministry.
The international trip this year is GO Mexico (near Mexico City, Mexico) with Iglesia Biblica Christiana doing VBS, open air evangelism, construction and sports ministry.
