Vertical Programming

Sunday Worship
9am & 10:30am

The Sunday large group worship and small group experience is an integral part of our youth student ministry. It is designed to create a welcoming and inclusive environment where you can grow in your understanding of what it means to truly love God, love others, and live vertically. Through dynamic worship, relevant teaching, and authentic community, you are challenged and inspired to live out your faith in practical and meaningful ways. Our small groups provide a safe and supportive space for everyone to ask questions, share struggles, and encourage one another on a journey of faith.

The Hangar
Wednesdays from 6:30-8pm

Wednesday night student ministry is a valuable opportunity to grow in your faith, connect with your peers, and serve our community. The Discipleship teachings provide a solid foundation to understand the basics of the Christian faith and how to apply it in your daily life. Our Growth Groups provide a safe and supportive environment where you can discuss and apply these teachings on a more personal level, share your struggles, and receive support and encouragement from your peers.
