Without question, some of life's most determinative decisions are made during the adolescent years, and while we understand that parents are the primary disciple-makers of their children, we also know that many teens do not have many positive adult relationships. Because of this, our GARAGE Student Ministries have recruited and trained a number of adults we call the "PIT CREW" who come alongside parents and teenagers to grow in their faith together. On top of fun activities and missions opportunities (locally and internationally), our weekly gatherings are uniquely purposeful in the lives of our students!
SUNDAY NIGHTS at 6:30pm
We try to make Sunday Nights intentionally attractional! Our desire is to make it the most exciting youth ministry night in the Tri-state! We are in full force this night, with the Garage Band leading us in worship, the Pit Crew leading "Family Group" discussions, and a message that is evangelistic by nature. We also use lively ice-breakers and lighthearted skits to break down social barriers and allow a visiting student to feel like they belong!
(10+ Family Groups are broken down by Grade and Gender)
WEDNESDAY NIGHT at 6:30pm
We try to make Wednesday Nights intentionally missional! Our desire is to equip our students who are following Jesus (or even students who are just curious about what it means to follow Jesus) to know the truth of the Word and grow as disciples of Christ. We usually kickoff the night with a big group game, have a time of simple acoustic worship, and then engage in the Word together through corporate teaching and small group conversations led by our High School "Student Leadership Team."
(4 Small Groups are broken down by HS Guys, HS Girls, MS Guys and MS Girls)
SUNDAY SCHOOL at 10:30am
Our goal is to make Sunday School intentionally educational! Our desire is to take a deeper look at the Word of God and even examine basic theology to help students develop a Biblical worldview.
