Outreach in honesty
That we would be honest with our lives, understanding that no one is perfect, but that there is hope in the Gospel and then desire to glorify God in everything that we do. 1 Corinthians 10:31-33
Encouragement in understanding
That we would grow in our understanding of the Gospel, that it is by Jesus' life, death and resurrection alone that we are seen as righteous in God's sight.1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 3:21-28
Training in community
That we would be part of a community that holds one another accountable to the Gospel in every area of our lives. Ephesians 4:1-6; Ephesians 2:8-10
Service in humility
That we would do our best at serving the Church and the world because of our understanding of God's initiating love for us. Galatians 5:13; Hebrews 12:1-16
High School Sunday School
Sunday from 10:10-11:05am
Meets Sunday in the Rooms 314/Upstairs in the CE building. All high school students come and join us every Sunday morning (during the school year) for a time of fellowship and Bible study. Bring your Bible as we will be studying the truths of scripture and how we can practically apply it to our lives.
Life Groups exist to bring glory to God by Discipling students. We do this by, teaching them the Foundations of God's word, the value of Christ centered friendships and how to find their identity in Christ alone. Groups meet every other week in homes with the same gender and same grade. Students are led by a facilitator.
Our leadership/discipleship program seeks to take students to a deeper understanding of what it means to be part of the local church. We focus on equipping students to be able to serve the church out of a response to their relationship with Christ. They will learn how to study scripture, share the gospel and serve their peers.
We accept applications in September and January to become part of the team. Applications can be found at Capstone and Sunday School.
Tuesdays from 6:30-8:30 • Chapel Cafe
Capstone is a place for all high school students to come and hang out together, make new friends, hear the Gospel and respond through worship.We regularly do events throughout the year as well. Capstone takes place each Tuesday evening in the Chapel Cafe (Room 200 & 205) For more information, contact Luke Laures or visit this page for updated events.
High School Yearly Events
Every other spring break, on odd years, we load up our big yellow bus and head south to enjoy all that Southern California has to offer. Over the course of the week, friendships are built that will last a lifetime and memories are made that you will never forget. This will be one of the best rips that you will ever take.
Where we go can vary from one trip to the next but some of the stops we have made in the past have been: Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios, Griffith Observatory, Medieval Times Dinner Theater, multiple beaches, famous malls and more.
Sign-up early once registration becomes available as space is very limited.
Every year on the last full weekend in July, we head over to Orondo River Park on the Columbia River. We have a great time engaging in all kinds of extreme hobbies including rock climbing, inner tubing, white water rafting, wake boarding and jet skiing. Camp speakers are chosen to impact students lives and introduce them to a relationship with Jesus. Registration begins the last week of school.
High School Ministry is under the leadership of our Director Luke Laures.
