Impact Student Ministry is changing the lives of Middle and High School Students
by introducing them to a growing and active life with Christ.
 

The above statement isn’t just a catchy slogan, it’s what IMPACT is all about.  A life with Jesus Christ is exciting, challenging, and the most rewarding experience a person can have and we want to introduce and encourage middle school and high school students to begin and develop that kind of life.  You can download a detailed copy of our Philosophy of Ministry here.

By being a part of IMPACT, you’ll be a part of a group of your peers who are developing that same relationship with Christ.  You can expect to be a part of fun and meaningful youth worship events, deeper discussion in a smaller group of students your same age, and lots of other opportunities for special events like worship events, mission trips, retreats, and other monthly special activities.

D-Groups

D-Groups (or Discipleship Groups) gender and grade specific small groups meeting on a weekly basis to dive into God's word and apply it to the student's everyday lives!  The goal of D-Groups is for students to grow in their relationship with Christ, and to take ownership of their faith by starting to read their Bible and have a daily walk with Him. 

Converge

Converge is a corporate worship event specifically designed for Middle and High School students. Students are encouraged to invite their friends that may not normally go to church.  Each service includes music, food, games, and a time of opening God's word.

GROW GROUPS - Sunday Mornings at 9:00am - 10:15am in the Student Center

IMPACT Students are currently going through “The Gospel Project” by Lifeway. This study takes a chronological look at the Bible and shows how the message of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection is found throughout all of Scripture, not just the four Gospels. Join us as we look at “The Gospel Project” .

D-Groups (Discipleship/Small Groups) - Wednesday Nights at 6:30pm-7:30pm

Discipleship Groups are age and gender specific small groups that are focused on reading God's word, praying for each other, and sharing life together. We believe that lasting life change comes through small groups and discipling each other. We hope that all students would be involved in one of our Discipleship Groups!!
