Student Ministry This Week


Sign Up Today for Fall Retreat

There are only a couple more weeks left to register for our Fall Retreat. Our 2015 Fall Retreat is November 20-22 at Springville Conference Center. This is going to be a great weekend for our students as we worship, zip line, capture some flags, and catch a glimpse of how to take the next steps in their faith.

The cost for the retreat is $75 which covers all expenses for the weekend. To register your student for the Fall Retreat, simply go to or click the button below.

Wednesday Nights This Month

We have a few special Wednesday nights planned for this month. Check them out!!

October 14th: Cuba Night - come hear about what God is doing in Cuba and how you can be a part of what is happening there.

October 21st: Bonfire Night - we'll hang out around the bonfire, burn stuff, spending time worshiping, explore the forest, and make some memories.

October 28th: Night of 1,000 Pumpkins - Disclaimer: there probably will not actually be 1,000 pumpkins, but there will be a bunch. We'll explode some pumpkins, carve some pumpkins, eat some pumpkins, and spend some time worshiping (God, not pumpkins).
