Student Ministry

Ablaze Student Ministries is an authentic community where students can know Jesus Christ & make Him known. We are passionate about helping students live an abundant life and glorify God in all the earth. Ablaze encourages & equips students to love God, love others, and make disciples. We partner with parents as they lead their family to glorify God.

One of the ways we do that is by connecting students in a Lifegroup on Wednesday evenings, and by gathering students collectively for Ignite Student Worship on Sunday mornings. Check out the Ablaze Facebook page & plan to meet us this Sunday or Wednesday.

Why Student Lifegroups?
We strategically place students in LifeGroups based on their grade and gender and interests of 6 - 10 students. Student LifeGroups are a safe place to develop great friendship and to grow deeper in your faith.

Guys and girls meet separately by grade with a couple of adult leaders.  This environment is the place where real change can happen as we get God's Spirit, God's Word, and God's people together.

Ablaze Lifegroups meet every Wednesday from 6:30pm-8:30pm for 6th-12th Grade students.

Join us at 6:00pm for fellowship and games. There is also a snack bar that is open to buy pizza, munchies, and drinks!



Students are the Church!
Ignite Student Worship happens, because CrossBridge students make it happen. Students are encouraged to volunteer to be a part of the worship team, set-up team, and servant leadership team.

What should you and your student expect?
Middle School students gather in Building A for Ignite Student Worship at 9AM or 11AM, and our High School Students gather in Building B for Discipleship Classes at 9AM or 11AM. We present biblical teaching targeted to the life stage of teens and issues unique to them. Students engage each other in a discussion group designed to help them "talk it out."

Family Worship Sundays
From time to time, our students and adults gather together in the main building for the 9 or 11 a.m. worship service. (In July our children join us, too!) We know the entire church body needs the opportunity to worship and encounter truth together in the same environment. Having an intergenerational Sunday morning experience is good for everyone, young and old!

As in all our classes, volunteers are trained and have undergone background checks.
