Family Life - Student Ministry (5th - 12th grade)
Our student ministry exists to disciple and build up students, in partnership with parents, into young adults that are in vibrant and devoted relationships with Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior (read more about our mission and values here).
Students and Sunday Mornings
At our Modern service, 5th and 6th graders will worship with their families up until the sermon, when they'll leave for their own teaching across the hall. Their lesson will follow the sermon at a level customized for their age. Our prayer is for families to be able to discuss what they've learned together.
Cornerstone is our gathering for 7th through 9th graders that will also take place during the sermon at the Modern service, with a lesson also adopted from the sermon for their age. Like Crossroads, Cornerstone is designed to present teaching that helps teenagers and parents engage in conversation about what they learned that day.
Because of their maturity, we encourage 10th through 12th graders to remain in the service with their parents. These students are invited to serve alongside other adults, whether as readers, prayer team members, or in other roles. Students that are interested are also invited to serve alongside adult teachers in our Crossroads gathering for 5th through 6th graders.
On top of Sunday mornings, our students gather on a monthly basis in order to have fun and serve together in our community. See below for our calendar for Fall 2019:

Serious about safety
Parents, we take seriously the fact that you are entrusting your teenagers to our care. Our ministry team members have all undergone a thorough background check. If you have more questions related to this, please contact Youth Pastor, Jon Beadle, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are committed to coming alongside parents in the process of discipling our students. Below you'll find a variety of resources to help. You'll also find links to our most recent and past Family Life Newsletters, a monthly resource updating you on our ministries to children and students.
