Sixth grade students start out their journey in the Bible Black Belt class. In this class they will earn colored belts as the complete each Bible learning level, until they ultimately earn their black belt. The first Wednesday of every month is Mentor Night where the 11-12th grade students mentor the Bible Black Belt students.
The two year confirmation program begins when students are starting their seventh grade school year and ends with their confirmation at the end eighth grade. The first Wednesday of every month is Mentor Night. Seventh grade students have a parent mentor and eighth grade students can select an influential, Christ-centered adult to be their mentor. There is a $75 registration fee each year to cover the cost of events, trips, and materials.
When attending worship, students are welcome to sit together on the right side of the sanctuary if they are not worshiping with their families!
Large Group Events for 6-12th graders will take place periodically after the 10:30 AM service. Watch the calendar for these events or sign up to receive the Student Ministries email so you don't miss an event.
