Exciting Changes Coming To First Students

Student Worship has always been the best night of the week – now it’s going to be twice as good!

To create a better experience for every student, we will begin to hold unique gatherings for jr. high (7th-8th grade) and high school (9th-12th grade) students starting the last week in August.

Creating two Student Worship experiences will help us personalize the environment and the messages to a student’s age and season of life. We believe students will find it easier to connect with Jesus and each other and apply God’s Word to their life.

There will be no changes to the Sunday morning Life Group schedule.

New Worship Times

High School Student Worship: Sunday nights at 6:00-7:30pm in the Gym
Jr. High Student Worship: Wednesday nights at 6:00-7:30pm in the Gym

First Students remains one ministry, and both jr. high and high school students will follow the same message series – each gathering will be shaped a little differently.

High School Worship (first night of unique gathering is August 25)

  • Doors open at 5:45pm for pre-service hangout time, including games, snacks and coffee

  • Up-beat worship songs

  • Message from God’s Word

  • Response Time

  • Post-service hangout time (pickup at 7:30pm)

Jr. School Worship (first night of unique gathering is August 28)

  • Doors open at 5:45pm for pre-service hangout time, including games and snacks

  • Message from God’s Word

  • Response Time

  • Post-service hangout time (pickup at 7:30pm)

Bible Study (update)

While one ministry is in worship, the other will be participating in Bible Study. The Bible Study for Jr. High will meet on Sunday nights beginning September 8 and High School will meet on Wednesday nights beginning September 11.

So What Happens Until Then?

On Sunday, August 18 we’ll launch our new school year with a High School-only Back to School Night from 5:00-8:30pm and a Jr. High-only Back to School Night on Wednesday, August 21 from 5:00-8:30pm.

On August 25 & September 1, there will only be high school worship.
On August 28 & September 4, there will only be jr. high worship
