The Well STudent Ministry

We happen to think that young people are pretty awesome. They're not only important because of how they'll be the Body of Christ in the future, but we also find that teenagers have more to offer than often give them credit for. We believe that young people are a significant part of the Body of Christ today. We strive to connect our young people to the Body and Mission of Christ. Simply, we look to give our students opportunities to be welcomed and to serve our community and the Church. Our Caring Christian Adults volunteers are connecting points - they act as numerous ties to the entire congregation and not just to youth group. While we love youth group - from silly games to great discussion groups - we truly want our young people to know that they belong and have a place in the entire church, not just in youth group.

Our aim is to celebrate the different phases and milestones that our students walk through. We know that there are many things that speak into the lives of a teenager. We hope and pray that our church community will always be a place of warmth, of truth and grace, and a place where they are loved with the love of Jesus. Middle School and High School is not an easy place to navigate, but we hope to partner with families to make the journey a little easier. If you have further questions, please contact Pastor Chelsea for more information!

Sunday MOrnings

It should only take a quick look around to realize there are no perfect families (not even in the Bible), but that doesn’t stop us from comparing our families’ quirks, flaws, and shortcomings to the seemingly perfect lives of other families. In this series, we'll talk about what it means to give our families grace, seek resolution to our conflicts, trust God through difficult transitions, and treat more friends like family. Meet us in the youth room during our 10:45am service for games, worship, a lesson, and our Middle School and High School small groups!

Midweek @ The Waetje's

The school year is busy. Take a break at Midweek! During the fall semester, we're going through the book of Romans. Each night has a wacky holiday that we're celebrating - from Fortune Cookie Day to Pepperoni Pizza Day to Golf Day! Each holiday brings a fun twist to Midweek! Along with our study of The Life of Christ, we'll serve in our community, share a meal on certain nights (like our Pancake Meal Night), and have a lot of fun! It's a night for all 7th - 12th grade students! Please message Pastor Chelsea for directions to the Waetje's House in Ammon!

Grad Sunday

Sunday, May 20

We love celebrating our young people. Graduation and transitioning to join the young adult group is something we want to celebrate. Not only will our Student Ministry celebrate those graduating, but we are having an all-church event. During our 10:45am on Sunday, May 20, the teens will be in service for prayer over these graduates and families. Afterwards, we'll meet in the gym for a graduation celebration with appetizers and opportunities to care for those graduating!  We'll resume our youth activities on Sunday, May 27 at 10:45am.

High School Camp (Grades 9-12) | June 18-22

Discover Your Unique Adventure

Every day, we are presented with lots of choices, from what to eat for lunch to
life after high school, and our choices can be overwhelming. Sometimes connecting with God can feel just as difficult. This year at camp, we are going to look at how the Holy Spirit connects with each of us in both unique and ordinary ways. We will discover the freedom that God gives us in the adventure of seeking His will.

Join us at camp this summer for an amazing week filled with hilarious games, inspiring lessons, great competitions, and opportunities to connect with God in new and fresh ways!

Middle School Camp (Grades 7-8) | July 16-20

Controlled CHaos

The world we live in is full of chaos. It distracts us, it diverts our attention, it keeps us focused on ourselves. This chaos builds walls that keep us from becoming the young men and women that God is calling us to be. This summer, at Junior High Camp 2018, we will learn to control the chaos. Join us as we embark on a chaotic adventure, filled with wacky games and activities, excellent worship, and awesome lessons in how we can learn to control the chaos of our lives and focus on the ways of Jesus with greater clarity. Please join us in July for Jr. High Camp: Controlled Chaos!
