Let no one look down on your youthfulness but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity show yourself an example of those who believe.
1 Timothy 4:12
To see the latest announcements:
We have the joy of ministering to Junior and High Schoolers in our group. If your 5th grade student wishes, and you believe they are ready to join our group, they are welcome. They can always try it out first. Parents are always welcome to sit in and observe what we’re doing.
We believe that every student has the potential to rise up and do amazing things for the kingdom of God and we would like to challenge them to do just that. We want to help each student come to a saving relationship with Jesus (if they haven’t already) and then prepare for and find the path that God may be leading them to walk. And in the process help to prepare them for the challenges they will be facing as they prepare to step out into their adult life.

Tom and Eileen Ellis are the adult leaders of the Student Ministry. They have been married for 28 years and have two daughters (21 & 24). They have been involved in student leadership for a number of years and understand how difficult and scary it can be to raise kids in this generation, but God is greater than the influences of this world!
Pastor Sean Richards, in addition to being Pastor Scott’s son, has been teaching Jr Highers for several years. He has a strong apologetics leaning and desires that the students understand why we believe what we believe.
Any of our leaders are available for questions or concerns. They can be reached by clicking on their names above.
Our Current Teachings:
Tom’s teaching is all about applying God’s word practically to your life. It’s one thing to know in your mind what the Bible says, but it is another to actually apply it to every day living. What does it mean to be “equally yoked?” And what about “being separate from them?” There are so many passages of scripture that can be confusing. Tom shares with a heart to have students come away with a better understanding of how these scriptures can be applied to every day life of a student!
Sean’s teaching is all about knowing why you believe what you believe. How is Proverbs relevant? How can I apply it to my life?
Life Skills Class is Adulting 101. The 3rd Sunday of the month we will have a guest speaker in to talk about subject’s that we feel all the students should know about while preparing to go out on their own. Things like finances, automotive, job interviewing and expectations, etc. (See the above Calendar for this month’s subject)
We like to have opportunities for the students to develop lasting friendships with their fellow students, so we try to provide a variety of activities from small events (bowling, laser tag, frisbee golf, hiking, etc.) to larger events (summer camp in Big Bear, California, and more) and some extended times where we camp out at church for teaching and fun (lock ins). (See the above calendar for events coming up this month)
