#2 – STUDENT CONNECTIONS TABLE

Stop by our Student Connections Table in the foyer on Sunday morning to grab a donut, meet our leaders and students, and introduce your friends.

Redemption Groups for high school and middle school students will meet on Sunday evenings from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM, starting August 30th, at the home of Alan and Lisa Fortenberry, 6401 Katy Lane, Edmond, OK 73025. This is where students find community, study the Bible, and grow in their faith.

#4 – EXCURSION NIGHTS

Excursion Nights are where we mix things up; bonfire and worship night, fun stuff, service projects, and more. More info about upcoming events will be available at the launch party.

#5 – CURRICULUM

Check out The Gospel Project video. Our hope is that each student develops a real relationship with Jesus and builds a solid biblical foundation for life. You can learn more about the Gospel Project curriculum on their website.

#6 – FULLY ENGAGED IN CHURCH LIFE

We want our students to be fully engaged in church life and worship, serve, and engage alongside others each weekend. Students, want to join a serve team? Talk to your parents, and then sign up to serve. Parents, we will include you in the process.

#7 – GOSPEL-CENTERED APPROACH

We care deeply about what our students learn and want to prepare them for life as followers of Jesus. Here is an article that describes more of our Gospel-Centered Approach.

#8 – SUMMER CAMP, RETREATS, ETC.

We have big events coming up this next school year. Be on the lookout for more information regarding summer camp, retreats, and outreach events.

#9 – LEADERSHIP TEAM

We have a fantastic leadership team that is excited about getting to know students and helping to prepare them to thrive in our world. We have been praying, planning, and preparing to launch this ministry. We cannot wait to see how God will work in and through our students.

#10 – PARTNERING WITH PARENTS

We want to partner with parents to raise healthy families. Parents, we will be planning roundtable discussions and other learning opportunities for you on important topics such as social media, dating, college preparation, and more. These events will not happen in the immediate future; however, we want you to know they are in planning.
