Ablaze Student Ministry
Ablaze Student Ministries is an authentic community that provides sixth- through twelfth-grade students an opportunity to know Jesus Christ and make him known. We are passionate about helping students live an abundant life and glorify God in all the earth. Ablaze encourages and equips students to love God, love others, and make disciples. We partner with parents as they lead their family to glorify God.
We offer two options for students on Sunday mornings based on grade level.
Middle School Ignite (9:15 a.m. and 11 a.m.)
We present middle schoolers with 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. We meet in Building A.
High School Discipleship Class (11 a.m. only)
Students learn how to study and apply the Bible to their own lives through interactive and topical teaching. We meet in Building B.
Outside of Sunday Morning
Ablaze meets each Wednesday night from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. At Ablaze, students play games, hear Bible-based talks relevant to where they are right now, and spend time in Lifegroups to build community and unpack the lesson.
One of the ways we do that is by putting each student in a Lifegroup based on their grade and gender. 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 experience God's Spirit, God's Word, and God's people together.
