Youth Ministry

Growing together.

Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.

Our youth ministry exists to provide a Gospel-based environment for middle and
high school students to worship God--in their relationship with him, with their fellow Christians, and with non-Christians.

It is our prayer that the ministry will nurture students’ spiritual growth through intentional fellowship, studying God’s word, prayer, music, serving the community, missions, games, retreats and other fun events. In our discipleship of the youth, we hope to partner with parents to model the Gospel and develop future leaders of the church who put their faith, hope and assurance solely in the doing and dying of Christ.

Our vision is that the power of the Gospel will create a strong, vibrant community of teenagers in Gainesville who, as a part of the body of Christ, will positively transform their social, spiritual, and educational environments.

Sunday School Resumes for Fall 2021

Starting September 12, during the 10:45 a.m. service, we will be resuming Sunday School Classes for all ages. We are making one change that we are particularly excited about this year. For the first time, both Children's and Youth will be working through The Gospel Project curriculum. Each class will be covering the same lesson at an age-appropriate level, on any given Sunday. While this may not seem like an earth-shattering announcement, we believe explaining the benefits of this change is more important.

1.  We believe that every stage of a child's development matters, and as kids grow, their parents are growing too! We love to come alongside parents as they navigate how to raise godly kids by providing community, offering opportunities for education, and encouraging specific ways for families to grow in their love for Jesus together in their daily lives. By synching up our student's curriculum, we can ensure that all children are learning the same material at the same time.  Our hope is that discipleship does not stop with their Sunday School class, but instead is continually discussed throughout the week in homes. We hope that this is one practical and easy step toward making this possible for parents.

2.  We believe that it is important that children be exposed to all of Scripture. By making this change, we can ensure that your children will cover the entirety of the Bible at least once throughout their time in our ministries.

3.  As always, we are in need of volunteers to make Sunday School happen! The Gospel Project makes not only learning, but teaching fun and easy. Lesson materials are concisely organized and easily followed by any who choose to teach. This is incredibly helpful when the inevitable situation occurs when a fill-in is needed. In addition to this, we have access to materials that can be used outside of the classrooms during your family discipleship time.
