Middle School & High School
Wednesday Nights from 6:30-8pm
Join us for activities, Bible study and small group discussion.
Bring your Bible, a friend and prepare to grow close to Christ.
Our aim is to disciple students in God’s Word so that they will become mature believers, living wholeheartedly for Christ. Our model is a little different than many churches in that we integrate parents as part of the student leadership team and as support through building relationships. This allows the students to be more embedded in the body of the church as a whole, fostering continued engagement after they graduate.
You know how, when you were a small child, you were taught the holy Scriptures; and it is these that make you wise to accept God’s salvation by trusting in Christ Jesus. The whole Bible was given to us by inspiration from God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives; it straightens us out and helps us do what is right. It is God’s way of making us well prepared at every point, fully equipped to do good to everyone.”
2 Timothy 3:15-17
GROW IN KNOWLEDGE
Sunday Core Class
Join us at 9 am on Sundays (6-12th grade) as we dig deeper into the Word using the Gospel Project, ask questions, and learn how God’s Word, though written thousands of years ago, is applicable to each one of us in our day to day challenges.
The Oak Grove Student Ministry is a place where teenagers can wrestle through the theology you’ve been teaching them at home and have it reinforced in a powerful and personal way under the guidance of a youth leader who knows how to ask great questions and point teens to sound truth. This should result in teens knowing and owning their faith on a deeper level.
In an age of bullying, gossip, slander and hatefulness, young people need other young people who can lift them up, encourage them and challenge them in all the right ways (Hebrews 10:24-25). We encourage teens to build biblical relationships that will stand the test of time as they navigate the ups and downs of the teen years.
While parents are called to be the primary disciple-makers of their own teenagers, they also need other godly adults to reinforce what they are learning at home! Student Ministry Leaders look for those who show leadership potential and disciple them to their next level of age-appropriate leadership.
We recognize that the age span between a 6th grader and a 12th grader can present some challenges when it comes to applying God’s Word to their individual circumstances. Because of this, we at times provide age specific discussion groups for more focused application.
Faith & Reason
The Oak Grove Student Ministry is a place where teenagers can ask tough questions and even share doubts and struggles about their beliefs without fear of rebuke. Skilled youth leaders take questioning teens back to God’s Word as the source of authority and help them process through difficult circumstances with biblical truth.
Being followers of Jesus means more than learning about how Jesus loved and served others, but it is also about applying that knowledge to everyday life. Serving is a way to allow teens to practically apply the gospel in tangible ways, putting others needs ahead of their own and looking for ways to be a blessing.
