MEETING WEDNESDAYS @6:00PM
Through STUDENTS OF GRACE, we hope to help students experience the wonder of God. We want to help students discover who they are, who God made them to be. And we want to help students have a passion for God and people that spills out in their everyday relationships and in how they see the world. We do this through, not just a curriculum, but a strategy: the ORANGE STRATEGY.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We strive for our student groups to be open and welcoming. Come as you are, and come ready for fun! We do play games and have our own Youth Worship. It is a time of fun and hanging out, while discovering the realness and power of God!
PARTNERING WITH PARENTS
Partnering with parents is about creating a strategy recognizing that what goes on at home is the greatest influence in the life of a student. The church has a key role in working with parents and students to navigate this relationship. Over the course of a year, student ministries get 40-80 hours (on average) with any student, while their parents have the opportunity to spend up to 3,000 hours with their kids. Successful ministries recognize the potential in these parents, and look to design their ministry in a way that aligns what they are doing in the church with what happens at home. As teenagers grow up, moms and dads move from directors to influencers, and the church can be an incredible tool in helping them navigate this transition. In the student years, it is key to develop influential small group leaders who say the same things a good parent would say.
We know and believe that the church's influence on a child's life is important, no matter what their age. We also know that what happens at home during the week is even more important.
And when we work together to share and help kids discover God's truth together, it makes an even bigger impact! Check out these family resources that allow you to help apply what your kids are learning each Sunday!
