Our desire is to teach and train the hearts of our students to love God, and to love others as they see opportunities to be the very presence of Jesus at home, school and at play!  We are passionate about helping students to grow in their faith through relationships – with God, caring adults, and with their peers.

Tree Lot Pre-order Commitments

There are three things to remind you of for our Christmas Tree Fundraiser this year. Reminder, you are NOT collecting money — just getting commitments from folks!

TREE SALE INSTRUCTION VIDEO

  • Get Your Commitments: Your job is to get commitments from family, friends, and church folks to come by the lot and purchase a tree or wreath. ALL commitments will be submitted ONLINE this year using the “Tree Pre-order Commitment Form” link below.
  • Get Your Sales: You don’t get credit for your sales until they come by and purchase a tree or wreath, so follow up with your customers to make sure they come by the lot.
  • Get Your Credits: When your Pre-order customers come by and make their purchases we will apply those credits to your account.

CHRISTMAS TREE SALES
Believe it or not, it’s Christmas tree fundraising time and Christmas Tree Sales begin this week! We are going to start with pre-order sales so you can get a jump on orders in time for the Tree Lot opening on November 27 (the day after Thanksgiving). You will NOT be collecting money for pre-orders, just getting commitments from friends and family to come by the tree lot and pick out a tree, which will give you credit for the sale.


Our Student Ministry (6th-12th grade) offers a variety of opportunities each week for students in middle and high school to become involved and get connected. We have food, hang time, great worship, and strong messages about real-life issues.

We want to help students discover the unique gifts and opportunities that God has given them for loving and serving the world in Jesus’ name.

Special Events & Missions

We have fun …
There are so many fun opportunities throughout the year to get plugged in! Activities for middle school and high school separately, and also combined fun as a large group. A few highlights during the year are DNOW Fall retreat, recreation fun, mission projects, concerts, movie nights, retreats, mission trips, and Edge of Adventure; gatherings designed especially for graduating seniors to help them prepare for life after high school.

We serve …
Being called to model Jesus’ example to SERVE others, all youth are invited on Tuesdays at 6 pm for our Feeding the Hungry Ministry downtown. Students can join the Student Leadership Team, or share their gift of music in the Youth Band.

We believe our mission field is not only the special mission trips during the year, but perhaps more importantly, we are called to show the love of Jesus and help others in the classroom, on the sports field and when hanging out with friends.
