Students

Connection Students exists to point teenagers to a connection with Jesus Christ, one another, and God’s purpose for their lives. It is our desire to see students become disciples of Jesus who develop a passion for expanding His Kingdom. We care about creating an experience for teenagers that is:

Welcoming. We want students to come as they are! Church can be fun, and we do our best to create an environment where people want to come to church.

Engaging. We know teenagers learn and grow in different ways, so we do our best to be creative and relevant.

Challenging. We believe teenagers have the ability to take tremendous steps of faith during middle school and high school. We also believe teenagers are qualified to serve others in the local church, the community, and around the world.

Encouraging. We believe the gospel to be good news! We want teenagers to know that they are loved by God, that God has a purpose for them, and that they have the potential to fulfill that purpose.

Student Impact

"The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." - Matthew 20:28

We believe God loves us so much that he did something about it — He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on a cross. As disciples of Jesus, we’re instructed to have that same attitude of love. In fact, the Bible says that if we love one another, all people will know we’re His followers.

Student Impact is a way for students to learn what it means to “be the church” and to put that love into action by serving on Sunday mornings. Here are some ways we'd like to see students get involved:
