Shepherd’s Student Ministry is a place where students can belong, grow in their faith, and learn to lead others. Our goal is to creatively equip the next generation to know God, find community, and change the world.
KNOW GOD • FIND COMMUNITY • CHANGE THE WORLD
Sunday mornings in SSM (August-May) include an opening assembly time of worship at 9:30 followed by students being split into four classes:
During class time, students hear relevant Bible teaching that focuses on foundational biblical truths to having an identity in Christ to developing a biblical worldview and more! (Check-in is between 9-9:30; Assembly is from 9:30-9:50; and Classes are from 9:55-10:30)
We offer an adaptive class for special-needs students called “Mosaic.” In addition, our Sports Ministry offers several special-needs opportunities throughout the year for students through age 13.
Sunday nights in SSM will be a little more informal. They’ll include an abbreviated teaching time led by our Student Ministry staff followed by a time for fun activites, snacks and hanging out. We meet from 5-6:30 pm in the Student Center.
Wednesday nights in SSM will include a time for students to have deeper discussion about the Sunday morning lesson in a more relaxed setting. Students will be split by grade and gender and placed in small groups. Middle school will meet on campus and high school will meet in homes throughout our area.
