Redeemer Student Ministry

Middle and high school can be a confusing and crazy time, and yet filled with incredible joy and growth. Redeemer desires to step into those great years to walk alongside students helping them know they are not alone by providing worship gatherings, gospel-centered teaching, guidance, and friendships.

Small Group Sunday Nights: Sunday evenings
We believe that the gospel enables us to enjoy life in a way that nothing else can offer. Redeemer Student Ministry serves as a weekly reminder of that truth. Our Sunday evening gatherings are small group focused. We have 15 minutes of gathering time before splitting into small groups for the remaining time.

Our small groups each have a time of fellowship, discipleship, and periodically use Sunday evenings for fun socials together (check calendar below). All of our small groups are open to new students – we welcome new students! We believe a small group is an easy way to enter a student ministry as it is a smaller setting (and easier one) to get to know other students.

All students grades 6-12 are welcome. We have two small groups for girls (high school and middle school) and two small groups for guys (high school and middle school).

As some small groups may adjust their schedule on a given Sunday, please email Audrey before coming.

Where: Student Chapel

Sunday Morning Bible Study
All students grades 6-12 are welcome
When: 9:30am-10:15am, Sunday mornings each week

Our Vision:

We exist to help students awaken and journey in their lives with Jesus as they grow in their understanding that they are beautifully created, broken more than they originally thought, and loved by God more than they ever dared to dream.

Our Values:

Value 1: Gospel Centered
The message of Jesus–the Gospel–is not the ABC’s of Christianity (the beginning), but the A to Z (the totality). We see the great need for students to learn of their identity in Christ, and thus to learn to abide in Christ, as they age and prepare to leave home.

Value 2: Relationally Driven
We see our leadership and gatherings as tools to inspire relationships that can help a student as we navigate together the middle and high school years. Students need trusting relationships with adult leaders where they feel free to have honest conversations about the struggles, doubts, and pressures they are facing.

Value 3: Worship and Devotion Based
We desire to help students learn how the promises of God’s perfect love toward them creates practices in their lives of devotion and the blessing of walking in the spirit and worshipping God.

Our Hope:

To create and community and environment where students learn to encourage and love other students, and adult volunteers are equipped to walk alongside students as students discover their identity in Jesus and worship God.

This is done by weekly worship, biblical teaching, small groups, investment by adult volunteers, student leadership, periodic fellowship gatherings, semi-annual retreats, and partnering with parents to best equip them to love and raise their children through the teen years.
