JR/SR HI Sunday Morning Growth Group

Every Sunday at 9:45am in the Teen Room, our JR & SR HI students have an opportunity to actually study the Bible for themselves and see what it actually says, but also take it to the next step: to understand what it actually means to their lives. And right now our students are watching through season 3 of the acclaimed TV series, The Chosen and then studying what the Bible actually says about the events from each episode. Don’t miss a single week all summer long!

JR/SR HI Souled Out Wednesday Nights

(September to May)
There is no other place that JR HI and SR HI students should be every Wednesday night over this coming school year because that’s when Souled Out is happening! Each week is another opportunity to build relationships with each other and with the God who not only made us but loves us so much! It is a place for friends to come and explore what life can be like when we live it the way our Creator has told us. Each night can have some crazy games, maybe some food, and always has a time where we bring the things we wonder about, struggle with, and need to learn more about to the God who is writing our story with each passing day. And yes, we’ll end up in the gym for some fun to cap the night off. Don’t miss a single week! It all starts with dinner at 6:15pm with our time together right after at 7pm. Don’t miss a single week!
