Midweek is a middle school and high school service that begins on August 21 and runs throughout the school year. Students meet in the Warehouse at 6pm for food, basketball, video games, and a time build community with one another. The service begins at 6:30, where students will have the opportunity to worship through music, hear solid teaching, and ultimately, encounter Jesus in a powerful way. We are kicking off the fall semester with a series called JUMP, which will study the book of Galatians and how faith is something you do, not just something you know. It’s going to be awesome, and you won’t want to miss it!
Every Sunday morning starting on August 18 from 9:30-10:45, students gather in the Warehouse for Life Groups, a unique opportunity to interact with their church family and with the calling of Jesus. Students will hear from a myriad of speakers from the pastors here at VFC, to small group leaders, to parents and college students from our own church family. Then, they will break up in small groups sorted by grade and gender. These groups, each led by a life group leader with a passion for students, will provide space for students to be honest with where they are in life. They will hear the gospel on their level, and they will have an opportunity to invest in the lives of others their age. We are kicking life groups off this semester with our series on Jonah, and we would love to have you join us!
RISE is a once-a-month high school gathering that meets every fourth Thursday from 6-7:30pm. We believe Jesus is doing so much in and through our high school students. They are the leaders of the student ministry, and RISE is a service to help them be better leaders, and cultivate a life worthy of the Gospel. We want to show our high school students that they are more than what society, sin, or their story says they are. In Jesus, they are chosen, loved, and holy. We would love to have you join us for this amazing service.
Newsong is a ministry for 18-25 year olds that meets every Tuesday evening from 7-9pm. Newsong is a movement where college students can come as they are to experience community, grace, good food, and the calling that Jesus has for our lives. We meet in East Montgomery (message [email protected] for the address). We can’t wait to see what The Lord has planned for us this fall! To kick things off for the fall semester, we will be going through a series on Galatians called JUMP, where we will talk about faith as something you do, not simply something you know, and we are ready for you to join us!
