What We Do
MERGE is our Wednesday night youth worship service at 6:33pm. Every week at MERGE you can guarantee that we will spend time worshiping, studying the Bible, and praying for and with each other. It is our hope that every student that visits our church feels comfortable and accepted for who they are right now. We will do everything we can to provide an atmosphere that it is relevant and welcoming for all types of students and help equip them to become the man or woman that God created them to be. Some activities you might see happening at Merge include singing, drama, skits, discussion groups, preaching, and sometimes just hanging out. Merge is also our primary outreach event, serving as the entry point for many students into the life of the church. Because of this, intentional presentations of the Gospel invitation will be given weekly.
Intersect is our Sunday night discipleship group at 6pm. This is meant to vary from Connections and Merge by going deeper into the scriptures and sometimes requiring students to prepare and study each week for the discussion.
Connections is our small group Bible study on Sunday mornings at 9:30am, otherwise known as Sunday School, that exists to help students build a well-rounded foundation of the scriptures and their knowledge of God. Our specific strategy for Sunday School involves using LifeWay’s KNOWN curriculum and subscribing to their strategy: To help students KNOW God, OWN their faith, and make Him KNOWN. This is accomplished through having a dedicated team of adult volunteers who are committed to investing in the lives of students and teaching Biblical truths in a way that is relevant and applicable for a student. Sunday mornings typically consist of some hangout time followed by announcements and a creative introduction of the Bible study topic for the entire group. Following this, small groups break up to discuss the topic in a more specific way.
SNAC (Sunday Night After Church) is simply a social hangout time for students following the evening service and Intersect on the 4th Sunday of the month. This typically consists of all the students hanging out at a church member’s house for a while and eating snacks, playing games, and just spending time in community together.
