high school

Our High School Ministry brings ninth- through twelfth-graders together to discuss relevant issues from a Biblical perspective as they foster community and fellowship with their peers. High School Ministry staff believe that real change and growth happens in the context of relationships, so they strive to make a place for students to belong through gatherings, events, and trips throughout the year.

Sunday Mornings

10am  |  The Canyon (In the lodge)

Sunday Mornings is where High Schoolers are invited to be a part of a time of fellowship to build community through relationships rooted in Christ, to grow in their personal faith, and to serve others. Students will have the opportunity to learn, deepen their understanding of The Gospel, have fun getting to meet new friends  and learn about opportunities to serve. We can’t wait to see you there!

Sunday Nights

5–7pm  |  The Lodge

Sunday Nights is a time where students are invited to a deeper time of fellowship, fun and opportunity to be disciplined through a small group. Students will have dinner, large group time with games and worship then broken out into gender and grade specific small groups to grow together and discuss content from the teachings.

10th grade Milestone  |  Younique Students

Younique Students is an 8 Session journey that helps students name their unique call from God. Younique Students will train your teenager to define their specific gifts, passions, and calling … and then guide them to focus on one goal for the next season of their life. Students will use tools and assessment designed to help them name their special assignment from God. Rooted in the gospel teachings of Jesus, the journey visits the stories of biblical figures including David and Esther in addition to the letters of Paul to the early churches.

As a church, we are confident that the tools and discoveries from Younique Students will equip and teach students to discover their potential and to elevate their growth in who God has called them to be.

Younique Students is offered each Fall.

12th grade Milestone  |  Rooted

Rooted is a conversation for graduating high school seniors as they head off into the next season of life, centered around how to face the life transitions college holds- from managing the social scene, to managing time—all the stuff no one talks about! Students will be equipped with how to respond with The Gospel situations faced in college and how to stay rooted in their faith. This milestone takes place in the Spring and all seniors are invited to attend. Students who are interested in leading as a counselor at Camp Rutledge are required to attend every session.

Rooted is offered each Spring.
