MERGE Student Ministries is the Youth Ministry for all students 7th thru 12th grade. MERGE is dedicated to serving Middle School and High School students as they develop and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. The goal of our adult leadership team is to provide opportunities for students to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ through worship, fellowship, exciting trips and weekly Bible studies. MERGE encourages students as they MERGE the truths they know from the Bible and what they believe into how they live in their daily lives.
We always have high energy worship, great food, fun games, challenging Bible studies, and too many trips to begin to describe them all. We are always planning and looking forward to these life changing times in our students lives. However some of those moments won’t happen without you. Yes You. The person reading this page. Don’t look around for someone else. You! The future of the church is literally right under your feet and you can make a difference.
Weekly Meeting Times:
INFUSE Worship Sunday mornings @ 9:30 a.m. in the basement - Join us for a relaxed, contemporary worship service. Our Infuse service, which originally was designed to minister to youth and their families, has grown into a service that ministers to a wide variety of ages. Following the morning message, worship continues as we break into small groups to discuss the message, pray, & fellowship together. For youth who prefer a more traditional Sunday School approach, we also offer a class that meets at 9:45 a.m in the Education Building.
Sunday Nights MERGE Fellowship @ 5:30 p.m. Join us each week for our Sunday Night fellowship dinner, games, worship & a message. Parent volunteers provide our dinner each week. We do encourage you to bring $2.00 to help offset the cost of food. After dinner, UNASHAMED, our youth worship band, leads us in a time of worship. This time is followed by a message from Phillip. The game room and the gym are open before and after worship. The evening ends at 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday Nights Bible Study@ 6:15 p.m. There is a church-wide fellowship dinner at 5:15pm, but whether you can make it for dinner or not, be sure to join us for this weekly Bible Study where we dive deep into scripture and learn how to apply Biblical teachings to our daily lives. We begin the evening with worship and prayer followed by classes which are divided by gender and grade level. The evening ends at 7:30 p.m
All MERGE Student Ministries events are in the basement of the Community Life Center.
A notarized medical/liability release form is required for each student who participates in MERGE activities.
Youth Mentor Opportunities
- We are always looking for people who are passionate about making a difference in students lives. And get this, you don’t have to be able to teach Leviticus to make a difference. Do you like music? Do you watch TV? Do you like sports? Do you have a Facebook? Twitter? Instagram? Do you want to be a better person? So do all of our students and what they need is mentors that they can look up to. Anyone interested in helping out, feel free to contact our Director of Youth Ministries, Phillip Doty, anytime.
