Summer is one of our favorite times of the year, and it’s when our favorite event of the year takes place: youth camp! This year, camp is going to be fresher than...
The teenage years can be some of the best and most difficult times for both students and their parents. Our student ministry understands this and wants to walk alongside you through the all twists and turns. We firmly believe that junior high and high school can be some of the greatest times of spiritual growth in a person’s life. Our goal is to connect students to God and one another. We do this with our weekly youth service, called Momentum, Community Groups and a variety of special events.
Momentum is a worship experience for all 7th–12th graders on Wednesday nights, from 6:45–8:30 p.m., at the Forney, Sunnyvale and Kaufman campuses. From 6:45–8 p.m., there's a high-energy worship service with videos, singing, crazy games and a talk. Then, from 8–8:30 p.m., the junior high students split up into Community Groups, where they connect with one another and discuss the talk. Momentum is the perfect opportunity to make some great friends and grow closer to God!
In addition to Momentum, we also have great events for students throughout the year, so be sure to check the calendar below from time to time to see what's coming up!
We feel that an essential part of youth ministry is working with the parents and guardians of our students. We want to pray for you, encourage you, and educate you to help you understand the crazy world your teenager lives in. Here are some online resources that you may find helpful.
