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 11am in the Encounter Room for a high school worship service. It’s a casual setting 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.

This is a great opportunity for high schoolers to deepen their faith while building community with those in their small group. Also, we serve dinner for only $5.
We have our main Encounter High School service at 11 am. We just launched Bible Sessions at 9 am for a more in depth and intimate look at the bible and how to apply it to our lives. All happening in the Encounter room.

KICKS OFF WITH A PRAYER NIGHT SEPTEMBER 11th @ 6:30PM
REGULAR LIFE GROUPS LAUNCH SEPTEMBER 18th @ 6:30PM
Community is the lifeblood of this “With God” life. We cannot do life alone and with that being said we make sure we don’t! We want you to sign up for Life-groups in fact you need to! We believe that when you can sit down in a circle of people you trust in, to share about whats going on in life, how God is moving, and even to just get to know people, special things happen, God things happen. So this is what we do, we make sure we cultivate an environment that is safe, fun, and deeply foundational to our faith. We meet every Wednesday night, well almost every Wednesday, to Eat together, worship together, and then share a group time in gender specific groups for over an hour. We find that this model is an incredible way to build friendships, dive deeper, and refuse to do life alone. We choose to have 2 adult mentors per group to help steward the amount of students we receive per grade. We find this will help us stay safe, accountable, but most of all so every student is seen and heard as they are navigating the life of Middle School, Jr. High & High School. Join us. Dig deep. Be seen. And enjoy life in community!
