SSM Weekly Opportunities
For regular updates regarding Student Ministry at St. John's, join our Facebook Group and follow us on Instagram!
- The Garage is open 3:00-5:00 p.m. on Monday afternoons during the school year. All Jr. & Sr. High students from the community are welcome to come hang out, do homework, eat, and play games during Garage hours. This is an intentionally and minimally programmed time to create a welcoming environment for any student who is not yet plugged into our group or any church home. This is an ideal time to invite your friends!
Youth Group is our weekly gathering for fellowship and Bible study. Jr. High meets Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at The Garage. Sr. High meets the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month from 6:00-8:00 p.m. We change it up on a regular basis in order to keep things fresh for students. We will often start with a game to get their blood flowing, transition into a time of worship though music and dive into Scripture applying it to our daily life and closing out in group prayer. This is our primary time during the week to be in God's word together. If your student is only available certain nights of the week because of other commitments, Youth Group is the best way to be connected to other peers and leaders in our group and stay informed on upcoming events and trips.
- Sr. High Small Groups are an even more in-depth time for your high school student to emerse themselves in God's word. We meet Thursday evenings 7:00-8:30 p.m. Guys will meet at The Garage led by Cary Hoff and girls meet off-campus led by Dereem McKinney. We split by gender in order to address certain topics that pertain to those genders; also in doing so we respect our brothers and sisters in Christ. There are often times expected readings and activities that need to be completed each week outside of small groups in order to aid in lessons and conversations at small groups. Small group leaders will clearly communicate expectations to group participants before closing.
