Sunday Mornings from 9:25-10:30
RealTime is about Senior High students getting into real truth - we read, study, discuss, consider and apply God’s Word. The Bible gives us real insight into who Jesus is, how God loves us and how the Holy Spirit changes our lives. We want to help you worship God and have a real impact on your world for Jesus Christ and His Kingdom. (Hebrews 4:12; John 15; Romans 2:1-8)
RealTime is a BYOB Event (Bring Your Own Bible).
Before RealTime begins, come and enjoy the Yahweh Café, a smorgasbord of hot drinks for a small donation. It's open for Junior and Senior High students to enjoy while getting to know other people.
Sunday Evenings from 6:33-8:30 in the Gymnasium
Jesus' passion was to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to earth by restoring our relationship with the Heavenly Father. Jesus' church, or His community, are the people whom God has chosen to communicate this good news.
Sunday evenings, and beyond, are an adventure in seeking God through teaching the Bible, through worship, through celebrating and playing together, through serving and meeting the needs of other people. JC is about becoming what Jesus challenges us to be in the gospels and to become the type of Jesus community that we see in Acts 2:42-47 and Acts 4:32-35. Small groups are a significant part of JC.
Wednesday Evenings 6:59-8:31
As Christians we are called to help introduce Jesus to people who don’t know Him. We are also asked by God to be His “hands and feet” or His "crew." God calls us, through the power and direction of the Holy Spirit, to minister to and care for others. JCrew is to help teach students about the work God has for us and then create opportunities to do that work. (Matthew 18:19-20)
Weekday Small Study Groups (Tuesday and Wednesday)
Meeting in Various Homes from 6:59-8:31 p.m.
The strength of a tall tree is its roots. For students who are serious about understanding and knowing God and who desire to go deeper in their faith, small groups makes that happen like no other way. Root groups are like-gender groups that will take you into an in-depth study of God’s Word, deep prayer for others and the will of God, and into real relationships where you help each other follow the Lord Jesus.
“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” (Colossians 2:6-7)
PRAYER BREAKFAST - When friends from all schools gather and pray for friends, their church and their schools. And it is an opportunity to learn about prayer. Join us Friday mornings at 6:10 for breakfast and prayer in the Dining Room.
RETURN is one of those key times for growth. Return takes place the first Sunday morning of each month at 9:25 am. It is a special time of singing, worship and teaching.
