Sunday Morning Connect Groups

Join us on Sunday mornings in the Loft from 9:00-10:00AM for Connect Groups. Our leadership team is ready each week to take students deeper into God’s Word. This is also an awesome opportunity to develop deeper relationships with other students in their specific age group.


WEDNESDAY Night Worship

We’re switching to Wednesday Nights for the Summer! Our Wednesday night gatherings in The Loft consists of a worship and fellowship experience for students in 6th-12th grade. Our desire is to create an unforgettable experience that students want to be part of every week. Each night there will be various activities such as games, hang time, devotional messages, singing, and small groups!

First Students seeks to create a culturally relevant environment for middle and high school students to hear the gospel and have the opportunity to respond.

Students develop deep relationships with the ministry team as they create deep relationships with each other and ultimately with Jesus.

The aim is for each to love, worship, and enjoy God. By fostering groups and being a part of church life, students go through discipleship by connecting them to Christ-centered relationships, encouraging them to grow in the way of Christ, and equipping them to serve as Christ served.



June 26-30, 2023 // Student Life Camp

Summer Camp with First Students is always the best week of the year! This year, we are headed to Servile, Tennessee! Camp will be led in worship by Vertical Worship, and students will hear preaching of David Platt

This picturesque location offers a blend of the great outdoors in the Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennesse’s largest waterpark at Wilderness at the Smokies and fun entertainment that your students and adults will enjoy. It’s camp at a waterpark resort, but Sevierville is a setting that proudly boasts of a “Southern” atmosphere fueled by local hospitality. That combination makes for an environment suited perfectly to students for worshiping God and studying His Word.
