Welcome to Student Ministries!

The middle school and high school years are a fun and formative time of life for students
and their parents.  Student Ministries is a place where students make great friends, grow closer
to Jesus, have fun and form a strong spiritual foundation.
Everything we do focuses on building up students' relationships with Jesus,
and we do it through a huge variety of fun activities.

Fun Events

We believe that Student Ministries should be fun! Therefore, during the year we do tons of different outings as a ministry. Here are just a few of them: Water World, Camp Elim, Winter Retreat, Drive-in movie theater,  laser tag, bike rides, Hickory Village VBS and hikes. Our ministry is an active one! There are lots of memories to be had in good company in Student Ministries! Stay tuned to this page for upcoming events.
