CORE is a place for high school and middle school students to connect with one another, with older mentors, and with Jesus. Our vision is to be an encouraging community of disciples sent to build the Kingdom of God.
CORE meets on Sundays at 10:30 AM in the Core Cafe. Whether you are in middle school or high school, come join us for a time of community, intergenerational discipleship, snacks, fun and games, and applicable teaching of God's Word. On Sunday mornings we seek to create a learning environment that equips and challenges students with the essentials to be a committed disciple-maker beyond high school.
This summer, we encourage students to sit with their families in the sanctuary or in the CORE student section during the 10:30 AM service. Each Sunday, we will have resources available specifically for students. We desire to equip students to be engaged on Sundays and to learn how to apply lessons to their everyday life. There will also be weekly videos posted to our social media to debrief the sermon and provide some questions to engage students and families.
The Sunday schedule is as follows:
- June 4 - August 27: CORE in the sanctuary at 10:30 AM (excluding July 16, August 6, and September 3 when there will be no organized CORE section)
CORE meets on Wednesdays from 6:45 to 8:45 PM. High School meets in the Auditorium and Middle School meets in the 400s. Our purpose is to create a fun environment that develops deep relationships, engages students on their faith journey, and seeks to pursue God's way of living. Students are invited to participate in games, hear biblical teaching that is applicable to their lives, and grow in discipleship through small groups.
CORE Wednesdays will begin again in the fall.

Sunday Summer Hangouts | June 11, July 9, August 13 | 12 to 2 PM | Core Cafe
Once a month over the summer, students are invited to connect on Sundays after church. The summer can be a time when students get disconnected from each other and the life of the church. We hope to provide times for students to be together, engage in sermon discussions, enjoy food, and connect with leaders. Our goal is to equip students to be ready to live out their faith and be involved in a local church after they graduate from high school. Food will be provided.
CORE Summer Nights | June 21, July 26, August 16 | 6:45 to 8:45 PM
CORE Summer Nights are always a blast! This is the perfect time to get together over the summer, play games, and catch up with friends. The hope for these events is to give students a chance to connect with each other over the summer but, more importantly, allow them to invite their non-Christian friends to a non-threatening environment where they can engage with the church (possibly for the first time). Stay tuned for additional details.
