HS Crossfire

Is our weekly program on Sunday nights designed for high school students. It involves traditional program elements of student ministry done in a large group as well as portions of time given to small, relational communities called Connect Groups. Connect Groups are generally groups of students ranging in size from 6-12 led by 2-3 trained adults.

Connect Groups

These are our primary vehicle for the discipleship of students. Small communities of students and trained adults who meet weekly for spiritual growth, encouragement, and accountability.  Secondary goals for Connect Groups include relational connecting points and service outside of the walls of the church.


Communities are our Sunday morning environment for students to grow in their understanding and application of Scripture. Students meet in a larger group (25-40) to unpack biblical truth and learn to apply principles to their everyday life.
