ENCOUNTER — HIGH SCHOOL MINISTRY
For 9th – 12th Grade Students
Encounter is a place where high school students can find friends, ask real questions about real life and faith, and chase after God with their peers. We meet on Sundays at 9 am and 11 am in the Encounter Room for a high school worship service. It’s a cafe setting that is casual and full of everything from music to laughter to teaching that makes you think. We also have Life Groups that meet on Wednesday nights during the school year and are a great place to study the Bible, to bond, and to be known in our ministry. Lastly, we also love to play and have several weekend retreats, camps, and a variety of serving opportunities for you to get involved with throughout the year too. So, don’t miss out, come and join us as we make Encounter a vital part of an epic high school life experience.
