When the kids reach Middle School, they join our youth group and begin to see how all the stories they have learned fit together into one big redemptive storyline. This storyline shows how God has worked through history to accomplish His plan. The middle school youth work through curriculum such as The Story of A Kingdom, What Jesus Demands From the World by John Piper, and Teach Me Your Way by Children Desiring God ministries. They also study systematically through big portions of Scripture or individual books of the Bible.
The High Schoolers take the Biblical Theology they have learned in their middle school years and begin to see how it relates to the world around them. They begin to study apologetics (defending the faith), hermeneutics (interpreting the Bible correctly), and issues in theology. Our desire is to teach youth to both know and love God.
The youth are exposed to a host of experiences through missions and evangelism youth trips. We like to have our mission trips communicate the same message we teach. We want our youth to learn the joy of serving and loving others. Our trips have included: hurricane Katrina relief, assisting a church planting events, preaching the gospel to families in Brazil, feeding the homeless, ministering to the disabled (Joni and Friends Ministries), aiding Voice of the Martyrs and the persecuted church, and sharing the gospel with our own neighbors at local fairs and events. We long for our youth to be exposed to solid biblical teaching through conferences such as the Give Me An Answer Conference at Southern Seminary and the Legacy Disciple Making Conference in Chicago.
The vision of our Women's Ministry is to seek to obey Christ's Great Commission. We endeavor to do so by encouraging women to worship God through a lifestyle of Bible study, prayer, fellowship, and service. It is our desire to achieve a balance between being ministered to and ministering to others. It is our heartfelt belief that as women grow and mature in godliness, they are better equiped to nurture and serve in their families, to enrich the church, and to evangelize their communities. Contact Christie Vaughn for more details.
Wednesday Night - Kerusso
Time: Wednesdays, 6:45–8:00 PM
Our Midweek Bible Study is an experience arising out of our Christian witness. We are Christians who proclaim joy to the world because Christ has come. He has come to our hearts, and he has come to offer life abundantly to the ends of the earth.
At our Midweek Bible Study, we speak about the difference Christ makes in the world while drinking Kerusso Coffee from Kerusso Cafe and other specialty drinks. Yes! We drink coffee to the glory of God. How? By remembering the persecuted church and the unreached people of the world with every cup we drink. Each bag of our own roasted and brewed coffee features a profile of a group of persecuted Christians (or an unreached people group). Amazingly, many of these persecuted and unreached people live in areas where coffee is grown and processed, reminding us again of God's sovereign goodness at work in the world. We learn how to speak of Christ more effectively to a world in need. We invite you to join us if you can. The Cafe runs by donations which fund missions work.
