We aim to develop students into lifelong followers of Jesus Christ—beyond their high school years and forward. We accomplish this through our partnership with the home and through “M.E.D.S.”
The heartbeat of every mission is to get students out of their comfort zones and focused on others. Our Guatemala and Mexico missions unplug them from their busy lives while local missions to the Downtown Soup Kitchen and the like reminds them that their service and influence can be expressed at "home" in Anchorage.
|(E) Encountering Jesus through Scripture
We want students to see how faith is applied to life; it’s life changing, not just knowledge. When students realize Jesus is woven into and part of all Scripture, the whole Bible comes to life and helps them see Jesus in their own lives.
Our vision is to have each student mentored by an adult—someone influencing them, where they can see how faith is lived out. We also desire to see our senior high students mentoring or disciplining a student two years younger than themselves.
A practical way for teens to know what it will be like to function in the main service after graduation is to be a part of it and to serve. We encourage teens to serve in the youth ministry and the main service.
Youth Group (6-12 grade)
Wednesday, 7-9PM, Rm 201
We’ll look at how the Bible and our faith is lived out day to day. Between short lessons and small groups, we’ll work out just what it looks like to actually live out our faith. We know God is the creator of ALL things, so this means that he created “fun.” We are a biblical youth group and so we partake in this part of creation as well. Games get us up and moving, shaking off the school day. So come and be ready for a great night that is worth the two hours of your life.
Community Group (6-12 grade)
Sunday, 11-12PM, Rm 201
Students learn and discuss the prevailing message of the weekend service, helping them interact together with family and friends about the same topics.
