Large Group: Worship & Bible Teaching

Sundays, 10:40am | East End (near Door D)

Every Sunday, high school students meet at 10:40am for worship and the message. Sundays are when we come together from different schools, grades, and neighborhoods to join our hearts together in worship. Sunday mornings have a specific emphasis on worship, Biblical teaching, and prayer. We believe that we are all part of something bigger – we are part of God’s family – and we spend Sundays celebrating that.

Small Groups: Discipleship & Community

Small Groups

Days & Times Vary | Off-campus in leaders’ homes
Our small groups are where we create a safe place for students to further belong to community, as well as seize opportunities to become more committed followers of Jesus. Students are separated into age- and gender-specific groups where they are led by trained adult leaders to discuss life, school, family, friends, and how we see Jesus in the midst of it all. This is discipleship at a basic level, through which leaders develop deeper relationships with students, moving to discipleship and continued influence outside of the church walls.

High school small groups meet weekly or every other week during the school year. Days, times, frequency, and meeting locations are determined by group leaders, with some input from participating students. Students must sign-up in advance to participate. Small group registration is open in late August and again in early January. We ask our high school students to commit to a 90% attendance rate prior to signing up for a small group.

Small group registration is currently closed. Enrollment will begin again in September when groups begin to form for the Fall 2019 semester.

Community Groups

Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00pm | Off-campus in hosts’ homes
Community groups are a relaxed, laid-back environment for students to simply hang out, have fun, and get to know each other better. We meet every other Wednesday night in “host homes” throughout the community for games, snacks, and a good time. High school community groups run from September through November, break for the holidays, and then resume in January until the end of April. No registration is necessary to participate in community groups.

Trips, Conferences, & Retreats: Intentionality & Growth

Our trips and retreats are put in place to further push students to take steps towards Jesus in all areas of their lives. We want to give high school students the opportunity to get outside of their typical routine and make time and space to stop and listen to what God is saying to them, and how he wants to use them to build the kingdom. Whether it’s a time to refocus their own relationship with Jesus, their relationship with peers and leaders, or with the community around them, we want students to walk away from High School ready to impact their friends, families, and local communities for Christ.

  • Summer Service Trips – Three week-long opportunities to serve; choose from local, national, or global (locations vary)
  • All In Weekend – A weekend retreat in early November (Round Lake Camp, Lakeville, OH)
  • The Odyssey – An overnight experience in February/March (The Chapel, Green, OH)
