Spring Run Student Ministries seeks to develop High School and Middle School students who are fully alive in the Image of God because of the death and resurrection of 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. This is accomplished in some of the ways listed below.
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 the Gospel makes a practical difference in their life. This happens 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 discuss God’s Word, pray together, and open up about life. This is the main hub of student ministries and it meets during the CCPS school year on Sunday nights from 4:00 – 6:00PM (with a 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. While Sunday School is not a stale environment, it is designed to educate students on the beliefs and practices of Christianity.
Youth Sunday School classes work through a 3-year rotation of Old Testament studies, New Testament studies, and topical/systematic studies. A student who is with us from 6th-12th grade will study through the entire Bible twice!
Our classes are divided into a Middle School girl’s class (meets in balcony room 202), a Middle School boy’s class (meets in room 102), and a combined boys and girls High School class (meets in balcony room 204). These classes start at 11:15 AM on Sundays directly after the worship service.
Throughout the year, our Middle School and High School groups will 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 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.
