Welcome to University Students – a ministry for middle and high school students and their families. Student ministry exists to create spaces for students to experience authenticity, spiritual growth, and development of the Christian life and glorify God in all we do.

Students can be found milling around the Rock Café, eating a donut (or two) and tacos, sipping on coffee, playing pop-a-shot, air hockey, and lots of laughing. At 9:30am, we transition into the Student Worship Center for our version of Sunday School. We play a game or two and learn more about who God is and who we were created to be.
This year we will be spending the fall semester learning about our spiritual ancestors from the Old and New Testaments. All are invited to join us, drop in any time!

Community is at the core of what we do as Christians. Resemble groups are small groups by grade and gender where students can get to know each other, share their lives, support each other and practice seeing and naming where God is working in their lives. Each group is led by adult volunteers who are committed to creating an authentic community and deeply care about the lives of students. Students are invited to join their grade and gender group at any time they can.
Our Resemble Groups meet on Sundays at various times. For a listing of the available Resemble Groups and more information, please click here. Please email Rev. Sarah Dennis with questions.
Wednesday Night Live
Wednesday Night Live is our middle-of-the-week touchpoint for food, fun, community, worship, and more. Wednesday Night Dinners are available for the entire family anytime between 4:30-6:30pm on the South Campus. Students 6-12th grade are invited to join us on North Campus beginning at 5:30 for open gym time. Worship begins at 6:30pm where our student worship band leads us in song and we hear a message each week before having some small group time to talk and check in on the week.
This semester we will be starting a series on misunderstood scripture, characters, and faith. We can’t wait to see you there.
