STUDENT MINISTRY

OUR PURPOSE: WHY WE EXISTS
To help students continually take steps in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

OUR MISSION: WHAT WE DO
To combine the critical influences in the life of a student to lead them into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

OUR VISION: WHAT WE STRIVE TO ACCOMPLISH
Students would see God for who he is, see themselves the way God sees them, and love others the way God does.

OUR STRATEGY: HOW WE LIVE OUT OUR PURPOSE, ACHIEVE OUR MISSION

We equip and mobilize Adult Leaders in order to provide atmospheres in which students can feel safe learning, experiencing, and having genuine conversations about faith and life.


STAY CONNECTED!

Parents and students, stay connected to what we’re doing through one of our many avenues of communication:

Parent Emails

Our monthly Parent email, keeps you up to speed on what our students are learning and includes important announcements, reminders, and other helpful parent resources.

Text Reminders

Remind is a great way for us to communicate previously unplanned get-togethers and last minute reminders related to student ministry activities.


GET INVOLVED!

Outside of the many activities, events, trips, camps, retreats, and hangouts, here are three great ways to get connected with the Cornerstone Student Ministry

on a weekly basis: 

Traveling with us? Read the Conduct Covenant

WEDNESDAY NIGHTS

Wednesday iGroups in the Upstairs FLC

from 6:00-7:30pm

Our Wednesday nights are perfect for first time guests. The focus is on building relationships with other teens and each one’s adult leader. iGroups allow for open and honest communication about life, relationships, family, school and all the other things that consume the life of a teenager, but most importantly how Christ applies to it all.

SUNDAY GRoups

Sundays at 9:00am and 10:30am

Youth meet in the Upstairs FLC



Sunday Morning Groups focus on learning from God’s Word through the community built in a small group. This is not an opportunity for a teacher to lecture through a lesson but rather guide students in looking to God’s Word for it’s truths and life applications.


Contact Patrick Smith to connect to a group!

SUNDAY NIGHT DISCIPLESHIP

If you are looking for a place to go deep in your understanding of God’s Word and help establish spiritual habits, such as Bible reading and scripture memorization, Sunday Night Discipleship is the perfect place. This time of gathering allows students to ask tough theological and philosophical questions to grow in their personal walk with Christ and become better messengers of the gospel.

Student mentorship

Most of us understand the struggle to be part of a new group or new school and find ways to fit in. We need someone we can count on to be there for us and can help us learn the ropes, to be able to ask questions without feeling stupid, and to know we have a friend.

 

The Christian life is, at times, pictured as a spiritual war. As in any war, a soldier needs to know that someone has their back, that they are not alone in the struggle. Their success depends on their friends in the fight. They need “battle buddies”.

 

We are going to provide these buddies for our upcoming 6th graders and any newcomers to our group starting on September 9th. Battle Buddies are student mentors in 9th – 12th grade that demonstrate the qualities listed above and want to befriend, encourage, and support these new students.
