Student Tribes

Tribes are interest based care groups. Students will gather with adult church members in homes or at the church to further explore an area of interest or develop new skills. Tribes are co-ed unless otherwise indicated. Tribes elevate the importance of fellowship, evangelism (inviting friends who don’t have a church home), and connecting our gifts and passions to our faith.

When Do You Meet?

On Sunday nights starting at 6:00pm we host our student service for all 6th-12th graders. This service contains teaching and material specific to the middle and high school age-range and will last about 90 minutes. During a typical student service you will find live worship, teaching, small groups, and LOTS of fun!
