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

When you were a kid, you probably had to be reminded to share things. Your toys. Your cookie. Your video games. But learning to share isn’t just for kids. Jesus had to remind His followers to share a few things, too. Each Sunday, we'll learn to better love and care for each other by sharing what we have: our stuffour ideasour lives, and our stories. The youth room opens at 10:30am, as we meet during the 10:45am service.

Midweek @ The Waetje's

Snow cones. Outside Games. Talks. Fun. Midweek Outside is one of our favorite summer traditions. On Wednesday nights, we meet on the church lawn from 7pm to 8:15pm. During this time, we play a variety of awesome summer games like 9 square in the air, gaga ball, water balloon volleyball, water kick ball, and more! This summer, we're going through the Fruit of the Spirit and hearing stories of how we've lived into the Fruit of the Spirit well (and maybe times where we didn't do so well).

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!

Late Registration Cost: $290
