CORE Student Ministries Events & Registrations

A Place for the Next Generation

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 Sundays

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.


CORE Wednesdays

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.

Upcoming Events

Student Parent Connect Elective | February 5 & 12 | 10:30 AM | Room 403/404

Teens in the U.S. are experiencing a mental health crisis. A survey conducted by Global Youth Culture, found that 60% of teens reported experiencing depression, 66% said they had high anxiety, 75% reported feelings of loneliness, and 35% said they had suicidal thoughts. As a church family, we want to address the feelings of anxiety and depression that so many teens are experiencing. Student Parent Connect, a Sunday morning group focused on creating a community that helps parents grow in their faith, also addresses current issues they face discipling their students. On February 5 and 12, at 10:30 AM in Rooms 403 and 404, Student Parent Connect will focus on addressing the topics of anxiety and depression. Nick Mance and Deb Hinkel will lead the conversation, which will include helpful resources for parents. Anyone with a student in grades 6-12 is welcome to attend. During this time, Nick will share what helped him in his struggle with anxiety and depression. Feel free to contact Deb Hinkel and Nick Mance with your questions about the discussion.
