Our gatherings are on Thursday and Friday nights. These nights are an opportunity to express our love to God through worship and relevant teaching, and is a great way for students to build relationships with their peers and leaders.
Thursdays are for all Jr. High students grades 6-8 starting at 6:30pm.
Fridays are for all Sr. High students grades 9-12 starting at 7pm.
