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

High School Girls Summer Bible Study

Amanda Smith and Annie Miller will be leading a High School Girls Summer Bible Study. They will be reading through a book called Biblical Femininity by Chrystie Cole. 

"God created every woman with a specific purpose – to be an ezer kenegdo, an essential counterpart. An ezer is one who comes alongside another and brings strength in the context of relationship. All women share this core calling, but how we live out our calling looks different for each woman based on her personality, gifts, strengths, perspectives, and season of life. Through the Biblical Femininity study, we learn to embrace our uniqueness and live out our calling right where God has us today."

 
The study will be on Sunday Nights starting June 3rd from 6pm-7:30pm). Books will be ordered, and free, for those who sign up by May 27th. To Sign Up for the Study, click link: https://goo.gl/forms/lnUxa5xJz6L2lFVw1

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!!
