ENGAGE Student Ministries


At ENGAGE, ALL students 6th – 12th grade and friends are welcome.
No matter what, YOU are a beloved child of God. 
YOU are important. YOU are loved.
Here at ENGAGE, YOU matter. 

At ENGAGE, we create space for students, families, and student supporters to…
* Connect with one another and God — through fellowship, fun, games, and activities.
* Grow your faith — through devotions, Bible study, Confirmation, small groups, and more.
* Serve in love — through Mission Trips, Signature Mission, special events, and activities.

We believe we build our faith through…
* Prayer
Serving Others 
* Reading and studying Scripture

Prayer, Worship, Serving Others, and Scripture
These are the four pillars upon which we grow our faith connect, grow, and serve.
These help us become our best selves. And b
y doing these four things,
and having fun along the way, we believe our lives can be and will be transformed.
