Upcoming Events and Activities

High School Spring Retreat

When:     April 20th – 22nd
Where:   Ocean Isle Beach, NC
Cost:        $195

We will be traveling to Ocean Isle Beach for a weekend of reflection, rest and retreat. We have rented two ocean front beach houses for the weekend and written some great small group material.  We will have a mix of group worship, small group dialog, and fun beach time! We will start loading the vans at 3:30pm and leave at 4:00pm on Friday. We will plan on being back around 3:00pm on Sunday.

Our theme for the weekend retreat will be Impact.

Jesus was a master at influencing people. He didn’t command people; He influenced them with love and service. Join us for a weekend at the beach as we look at the principles Jesus used to influence others for His kingdom. We’ll ask ourselves what it means to build influential relationships with peers both inside and outside the church.

Bake Sale

When:     Sunday April 29th from 8:30am – 12:30pm

Sunday Night Live

Join us this Sunday for SNL this Sunday starting at 5:30pm with a pasta dinner then moving into a time of worship and small groups.  Here is the schedule for April and a brief introduction to the lesson each week.

April 22nd – No SNL
HS Spring Retreat Weekend

April 29th – Education
School is hard. Understanding calculus and Chaucer is tough enough. But that’s not nearly as hard to deal with as the pressure to live up to the expectations of parents, friends, ourselves—and to achieve the American Dream. We need to get the grades to get into the school to get the job to get the money to get the secure future. But does this view of education make sense in God’s Kingdom, or has there been a disconnect somewhere along the way?

Parent Feedback

We have a new way for parents to share their thoughts and opinions with us about the Student Ministry.  The form is not a one and done survey but more of a tool you can use to share general thoughts about your child, their spiritual development, and direction of the Student Ministry.

PLEASE TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO SHARE

d365 provides inspirational and relevant reflections on scripture for young people. The devotional experience is written especially for students and seeks to provide reflections on themes that impact our faith journey. The hope is that d365 will create a quiet space in your life for meditation and prayer. A new devotion is available every day online or through mobile devices.

Learning to Share Grace- Giving Away Your Faith
After exploring their own faith, our students will discover endless ways to share that faith with others. Each week’s lesson asks students a new question about their relationship with Christ and others—What am I saying? What do I hear? What am I learning? What am I doing?—while Gospel texts provide powerful examples of Christ’s love and guidance.
