Youth Summer Camp

Youth Camp will be July 9th-13th. We will participating in Houston Project, a mission focused summer camp, hosted by Houston's First Baptist Church. Price is $140 per student.

Houston Project Website

A typical day at Houston Project looks like students waking up to breakfast, as the leaders are headed to their morning meeting to plan, prepare and pray for the day ahead. After breakfast, students head into their morning session, a time of worship and teaching. After that time, lunch will be provided and churches will depart for their ministry for the day - each day will look different. Churches will arrive back at Houston's First with time to have dinner and a shower before their evening session. Directly after the evening session, leaders will have a designated small group time with their students intended to facilitate discussion about the day. Each night the interns will host their world famous dodgeball tournament. Lights out at 11PM.

Wednesday Nights

Bible Study @ 6 p.m. 

We invite both Middle School and High School students to our weekly Bible Study upstairs in the Living Room. It is a great time of study, group discussion and encouragement in a more casual setting. We promise you a night that contains Jesus, laughter and junk food. We are currently studying the life of King David through a video based series from Right Now Media. 

With every study we choose, we make sure that they are relevant and foundational for teens in following after the Lord. Feel free to come early and stay after, as this will surely be a night that will transform your week. 

Sunday Mornings

Sunday Morning Discipleship @ 9:30 am

Here students will find Godly adults who have a heart for teens guiding them through difficult times and challenging them with the truths of God’s Word. 

We meet upstairs in the main building. 

Our new format for Sunday mornings begins May 14. We will start off by studying the book of James for 12 weeks. This is a video based series taught by Francis Chan. We will start out in large group to watch, then break up into girls and guys for a time of teaching. We then want to spend some time in small groups for discussion and prayer. We are excited about these changes and think it will be a powerful time of discipleship as the students have each week's lesson reinforced from 3 distinct perspectives: from the video, their teacher and their peers. Hope to see you there!
