Join us Sunday Mornings and Wednesday Nights.
WE GATHER SUNDAY AT 9:15 AND WEDNESDAY AT 7.
We are here to make, Christ-like disciples who love God, love God's people, love God's Word, and love God's world. We believe fellowship and worship with the entire church are essential to the spiritual growth of all Christians, so we expect believing students to be engaged in the Sunday morning worship services of our local body. We also, however, see the value of discipleship that is designed specifically for 6th-12th grade students. Therefore, in seeking to make disciples we offer times of teaching and fellowship for our students in addition to the weekly gathering of the church body as a whole.
The goal of IMPACT Sundays is to equip students for godly living now and prepare them to continue to follow Jesus into the future. On Sunday mornings at 9:30 we meet as God’s people to encourage each other to "grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ." This is a time of prayer, music, small group discussion, and practical application of God’s Word.
Middle School (6th - 8th Grade)
For the next few months we will be slowly walking through the letter Paul writes to the church at Philippi. Paul is overflowing with joy and thanksgiving, even during difficult circumstances. His letter highlights fundamental disciplines for the Christian life.
High School (9th -12th Grade)
On Sundays this spring, Luke Badley will be teaching while Pastor Josh is away on vacation and education leave. Then we will settle into a series from the first section of Isaiah. The great prophet's opening chapters are filled with important teaching for us, showing us the greatness of God, the foolishness of pride, and the futility of trusting in humanity. Above all, Isaiah shows us the glory of God that can take a stump that looks dead and bring the greatest possible life from that ugly, broken death.
Impact begins at 7 pm in the Student Ministries Center (3rd floor of the Church). We have separate Middle School (6th-8th grade) and High School (9th-12th grade). Both include engaging messages, fun games, and small group discussions. The whole night is designed to help students grow in their understanding of who God is and what He has done.
Middle School (6th-8th Grade)
James: Faith in Action
"What good is it my brothers if someone says they have faith, but do not have works? Can such faith save him?"
In the month of November, we will be taking a break from the life of Abram, and looking at faith in action from the book of James. Throughout the month we will deal with temptation, showing favoritism, guarding our speech, and finding the cause of our fights.
Works don't save us. James highlights that they do show what we believe. How we live reveals what we are placing our faith in. "As the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead."
High School (9th-12th Grade)
Pastor Jacob Atchley of the Church at Martinsburg will be teaching for three Wednesday nights while Pastor Josh is away on vacation and education leave. After Josh returns, we will journey into John's gospel to see and hear our Lord. John's main point can be summarized as: Incarnation is illumination for revelation and salvation. In other words, God became a man in Christ to show us the Father and save all who believe.
