COVID-19 Update: The safety of our community is important to us. Numerous changes to worship, regular programs, and ministry events are occurring. For worship changes please refer to the links on our homepage. For the latest information, please sign up for our weekly newsletter here. You will receive an email each Wednesday with up-to-date information. We look forward to returning to normal operations (as outlined below) in the future.
Spring Run Student Ministries seeks to develop High School and Middle School students who are fully alive in the Image of God through Jesus Christ. We seek to accomplish this by creating opportunities for students to 1) have a serious personal relationship with Jesus Christ, 2) be members of healthy Christian communities, and 3) live out a vision of the kingdom of God. No matter how silly, fun, and friend-filled our programs are, each one is designed to accomplish at least one of these goals.
Youth Group is the main gathering point for Middle and High school students to worship God through games, teaching, musical worship, and small groups. Youth Group is a place for students to learn how to follow Jesus in their own life within a community of other Christians. A major portion of our Youth Group gathering is centered around intentional small group time where students and leaders dive deep on God’s Word, prayer, and life itself. It is the main hub of student ministries and it currently meets on Sunday nights from 4:00 – 6:00PM (with some few exceptions, please check the calendar here).
Our student Sunday School classes seek to develop Middle and High School students with a robust understanding of what it means to be a Christian and how to grow deeper in Christ. Our goal is to help students learn to pray, study the Bible, understand Christian theology, and communicate their faith effectively to other believers and non-believers. However, this is not meant to be purely academic! Students play games, have discussions, and learn at the same time. We welcome students at all points in their faith journey.
Throughout the year, our Middle School and High School groups go on weekend retreats. These retreats serve as a time to get away from the normal pressures of life and school, form deep, lasting friendships with other students, and worship God by spending time in prayer and the Word. This is accompanied by a massive dose of crazy fun. Please check our calendar to find out when the next retreat will be.
Special Events & Trips
Roughly once a month, we will schedule special events from Christmas parties, to laser tag, hikes, camping trips, lock-ins, service days, mission trips, and more. Some events are designed to be a time of fun and bonding while others are designed as opportunities for students to exercise and grow their faith. Please check our calendar or registrations page for upcoming events.
