Ministry Purpose: Our focus is to teach and equip middle- and high-school students so they can develop and grow in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In following Christ, their lives are changed and they are driven to invite others to encounter Christ so they may know, believe and understand the life-changing power of Jesus Christ.
Regular Activities (weekly/periodically/yearly)
Sunday Morning Bible Study: Sunday mornings, 9:45-10:45 a.m.
Using Lifeway’s Bible Studies for Life curriculum. This fall we will cover 2 units. “Welcome Home” where we’ll examine what it means to show Biblical hospitality to our neighbors. Followed by “How to Pray” where we will study the Lord’s prayer and discover ways to grow in our own prayer life.

Students learn about character education through art, exercise, games, and conversation. ACE gives students extra one on one time that is not always available in a classroom setting.
