IMPACT Student Ministry

See what events/activities are coming up for students in grades 6-12!

Stranger Things Fall Retreat

Often times it feels like we are living in the upside down; a world that is dark, scary, and consumed with monsters. It seems like everywhere we turn, monsters lurk in the corner. Monsters in our personal lives like perfectionism, loneliness, feeling left out, depression, anxiety, or illness. We’re also faced with darkness in the world as a whole as we hear about school shootings and violent acts and watch our world leaders bully one another. And when we come face to face with these things we’re often left wondering, “Where is God in all of this? Will we be stuck in the upside down forever?” At the Fall Retreat we are going to search for God in the midst of darkness and fear. We will explore stories in the bible that show us that even when the darkness seems overwhelming and will people feel alone, the light of God always overcomes. This weekend we will learn how tap into the Holy Spirit within us, to be a unified body of Christ, and be the hands and feet of God in the world. 

We need you to be a small group leader!

We are looking for small group leaders for the 2018-2019 school year for our Wednesday night program. We meet from 6:15-7:30 most Wednesdays throughout the school year.You don't have to know everything about the bible. We just need you to engage our students in authentic faith conversations! We handle all the curriculum and teaching. Your main job is to help lead discussions around student related messages! If you want more information, sign up below!

Dinner Teams

We are looking for people to help serve dinner this school year. You would be on a team of 10 people and in charge of bringing part of the meal. Your team would need to prepare food for between 75-95 people (with growing teenager portions). The teams are also responsible for serving the meal and cleaning up after.

We also need four people to be team leaders to help organize your group. Team leaders are in charge of making deciding who brings what and making sure people are there to serve.
