6th - 12th Grade

studentLife exists to lead students into a focused life with Jesus Christ by pouring into, equipping, and building up the next generation.
At studentLife our goal is to care for middle and high school students by providing a fun, safe, and engaging community where they can build lasting relationships, grow in their faith, and discover who God says they are and the purpose He has for them.

Small Groups are an important part of student ministries at Community Church. Every Sunday night offers an opportunity for students to interact with the same group of students and leaders in a casual and relaxed setting. During small groups students have the chance to talk about that nights message, what’s going on in their lives, and anything else on their minds.  These groups are a great way for the students to get connected to a group of believers and grow in their faith!

Parents

We Love Parents!

Here at studentLife, we fully believe that parents are the greatest influence on the spiritual development of their teens. As a result, it is our desire to partner with parents and provide them resources and opportunities for their students to encounter God in new and exciting ways.

As a parent, if you ever have a question about the ministry, an event, or series, please do not hesitate to contact Jeff Huisjen, director of StudentLife, at

Stay Connected!

We send out regular emails about what we are talking about on Sunday nights so parents can continue the conversation at home.  To ensure you stay up to date on our current series and upcoming dates, announcements, and trips, make sure you are signed up for our parent email list!

Help Support StudentLife

student Leadership

Here at Community Church we believe our junior and senior high students are not just the church of tomorrow, they are the church of today.  We desire to give our students an opportunity to discover a deepening personal relationship with Jesus Christ and connecting them to a greater church family here at Community Church.  As a result, CRAVE and ELEMENT have relevant, dynamic teaching that sometimes intersects with the same teaching series we have for our Sunday morning worship services for adults, all with a focus on student issues and maturity.

studentLife also has a Student Leadership Team that meets regularly on the 2nd Sunday of every month. This team is comprised of students who have a strong desire to shape the ministry of studentLife to be more effective, engaging, and beneficial. If this is something your student is interested in, contact Jeff at .

 

studentLife Leaders

At studentLife our desire is for students to find a welcoming community, knowledge of a God who loves them, and a practical foundation on how to live a Christian life.  This cannot happen without a dedicated team of adults who are interested in building relationships with students and pointing them towards Christ.

We are always on the look out for incredible leaders looking to join our fun team with an incredible purpose.  Joining the studentLife leadership team is a great opportunity to use your gifts and talents to care for students and give them a very real picture of God’s heart for their lives. Sometimes there is a misconception that to really make an impact in a student’s life you need to be a trained professional, but nothing could be further from the truth! Effective youth ministry is done by people who take the time to be a part of a student’s life; from old to young, cool to nerdy, trained or untrained. The only requirement is presence, empathy and a willingness to build up the next generation from within our community.
