Student Ministry

Bridge

Wednesday evenings are filled with lots of energy, fun, and noise! If you haven’t seen Bridge in action, you’ve probably heard us. We gather on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8 p.m. for Youth Worship, games, teaching, and snacks. We have an incredible team of leaders and staff that lead, teach, and make students feel like this place is a home away from home. We want our students to connect with God and experience Him in fun and unique ways, and we strive to make Bridge the best part of their week. We meet in the Student Center on the 2nd floor.

Inside Out

On Sunday mornings, we offer two identical Sunday school meeting times at 9:30 and 10:50 a.m., so no matter which worship service you go to, you can still come to our Youth Sunday school class. We call it Inside Out because we want what happens inside here to be taken outside with us. We meet in the Student Center on the 2nd floor.

Bible Studies

On Sunday evenings, from 6:45-8:00 p.m., we are offering Bible Studies for all ages.  We dive deep into scripture and discussion each week and tackle topics and issues that are relevant to teens. We meet in the Student Center on the 2nd floor. We also have a bible study for specifically 11th and 12th graders called LAUNCH. This group meets at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday nights downtown at Austin Ave. Unite Methodist Church. 

BigStuf

What are the two best parts of the summer? Summer camp and the beach, right? That’s why we go to BigStuf Camp every year. BigStuf Camp is in Panama City Beach, Florida, right on the beach. It is an amazing week, and students’ lives are changed by their experiences there. We love this camp and keep going back because our students love it, and our leaders do, too. This year’s trip is June 24-29, 2018. To sign up for the trip, please fill out a form at church. The cost of the trip is $500 and you must put down a deposit of $100 to save your spot. Scholarships are available upon request.
