High School (9th-12th grade)
The high school meets Sunday mornings after worship time in the sanctuary.This is our large group teaching time where we teach through various topics and books of the Bible. We want the teens to understand how to follow Christ, understand scripture and how it applies to their daily lives.
Our primary goal for the 45 minutes we have on Sunday mornings is teaching our students from the Bible. This is our only time of extended teaching each week and we truly believe that God’s Word is powerful and that faith in Jesus comes by hearing His Word (Romans 10:17). One of the things we strive to do during this time is to help the students understand the Scriptures by giving lots of practical and relevant illustrations and examples. Our teaching material is a combination of Orange curriculum and other self written lessons by the High school leaders.
Wednesday Nights: 6:00pm-8:30pm
This is time where we eat dinner together, play games in the gym, and we worship together. During our teaching time we continue to teach through different topics, books of the Bible and we also break into small groups where we can dig deeper into what was taught that night. Our small groups are for accountability, prayer, building community and discipleship.
Our emphasis for Wednesday nights are on small groups. In small groups, the students have an opportunity to discuss and work through the teaching from the previous Sunday. We believe small groups are a vital part of the students’ growth, especially in our culture today. The kids often sit through lectures in school and simply tune out whatever is being taught. The same is true in the church. Through small groups, however, the truth becomes more personal as each one of the students is encouraged to participate in the discussions. This time also gives the students opportunity to share about their lives. Other things we do on Wednesday nights includes: having a snack at the beginning of our time and finishing our night in the gym playing a random assortment of games and sports.
