AWSM Nights

Calling all high school students to join us at AWSM on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8pm! This midweek service is designed to give high school students a place to belong in an encouraging community of their peers. Each Wednesday night we provide an environment for high school students to believe, belong, and become! Come check out AWSM for high school only, we will save you a seat!


Our AWSM Middle School Ministry is where the excitement never stops! Students in 6th-8th grade gather on Sunday nights from 5:30-7pm for a large group experience specifically designed for middle schoolers. With fun games, interactive teaching, and reflective small groups, it's a place to grow in faith, make friends, and have a blast! Come be a part of something truly AWSM!

High School Small Groups

Groups are led by positive, background checked adults who are hand-picked for just this kind of ministry. Each group meets at the time and location that works best for students, parents, and leaders. Each group is unique, but centered on consistency, community, and care.  Please be patient - placing students in the right group sometimes takes a little time, but it’s so worth it!

Why split middle & high?

Central Campus Only

This positions student ministry for growth in both middle and high school ministries given our current space. We are also be able to provide a more intentional program designed to each age group's needs. Overall this is a strategic change from years past meant to give each age group the best opportunity to ask questions, meet God, belong in community, and become difference makers.

Sunday Mornings

Sunday Mornings are incredibly rich times at ALIVE! Students are vibrant and active in worship and service. These are two crucial ways our teens experience Christ and His Community, the Church!


You'll see students in every worship experience, and parking cars, making coffee, greeting and hosting visitors, caring for kids, and helping lead worship!
