Helping students take the next step in their journey toward Christ.

56 Ministry

5th and 6th Grade

Our fifth and sixth grade small groups dig deeper in the Bible together and focus on three basic truths: God cares, I’m made in the image of God and God invites us to include one another. Students will attend the first 30 minutes of the adult worship experience with their parents/guardians and then are dismissed to the 56 classroom.


7th – 12th Grade

Gateway Student Ministries is our ministry to Middle School and High School students, 7th-12th grades. We seek to come alongside parents to disciple our students into gospel-maturity.

The mission of GSM is to: To equip students to be Empowered Leaders and Kingdom Workers in their sphere of influence for Christ. We meet regularly on Wednesday from 6:30-8:45pm for youth group. Students will gather for a time of games, food, preaching of the Word and Life Groups. Our goal every week is that they will walk through the doors feeling accepted as they are, and walking out the doors feeling challenged to change for Christ.

Also before GSM begins on Wednesday, the building will be open to students to come hang out at the church from 4:30pm on to do homework, play games, meet with a leader etc. In addition, we offer many opportunities for students to develop relationships, use their spiritual gifts, and grow in their faith through youth conference, retreats, service projects, and group events. In all we do, our desire is to see our students loving Christ, loving the church, and making disciples.
