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 desire is to help students become disciple-makers and to walk alongside both them and their parents in their faith journeys.

We meet on Sundays at 10:30 AM, with high school students in the Core Cafe and middle school in the auditorium. On Wednesdays during the school year, we meet at 6:45 PM. Both Sunday and Wednesday meeting times have a blend of games, community, small and large group teaching, and discipleship. 

Our special needs ministry is designed to support families and make sure you can come to church and worship together. Our CORE Ministry (6th to 12th grade) has a specially designed sensory room. Our goal is to come alongside your family and be a support to you. CORE meets at 10:30 AM only. Currently the CORE special needs ministry is full.

LOVE THIS BOOK: Meeting God in his Story

Starting in January we are journeying through a series as an entire church called LOVE THIS BOOK: Meeting God in his Story. This is set up so that everyone from KidStep through adulthood is going through the same material to foster conversation and growth just like we did last year with our study of the Gospel of Mark - Follow. We will have devotional guides available for adults and students that will help in generating conversation points as we study this together. 


Currently, all summer missions trips are going ahead as planned.

Camp Orchard Hill

Camp Orchard Hill 2020 | Sunday, July 5 (10:15 AM drop-off) to Saturday, July 11 (2 PM pick-up)

It has been proven that when kids get involved in serving, it becomes a significant part of their discipleship journey. This year at Camp Orchard Hill Mission Week we will get to experience the best of both worlds. The serving side of missions and the fun side of camp. When students think back on their youth group years we want them to remember God working through them in missions experiences like these. If we would ever beg for a student to be involved in something, this week would be it! Join us for the Best Week Ever on mission with Camp Orchard Hill! Click here to register.
