UNDERGROUND MINISTRY

We have created a friendly and welcoming community for students
6-12th grade to develop relationships with their peers and teachers, and to be trained to develop radical surrender to Jesus and His direction for their lives.  Check us out on Facebook! If you are interested in helping out in our youth ministry, email us!


We would love to have you join us at the following gatherings: 

Sunday Morning – 9:00 – 9:45 am:

Students meet together with our leaders for a short lesson from the Bible, as well as prayer and open discussion. This is a friendly space for new students to become engaged with our group and get connected.


Sunday Afternoon – 1:30 - 2:30 pm:

We've designed this time to engage students who desire to be leaders in the church and the world. We open scripture and teach students to go deeper, take notes, communicate clearly, and lead. If you want to go deeper into God's Word, serve, or pursue a life of ministry, this time is for you!


Wednesday Evening – 6:00 – 7:30 pm:

This gathering is where students can hear relevant teaching, connect in groups and have a great time with friends and leaders. We start with a large group lesson led by the lead youth minister, then split off into age and gender specific small groups, where students will meet with adult volunteers. We end the night with fun games and connecting as a larger group.

YEARLY EVENTS

Tennessee Christian Teen Conference – Gatlinburg Convention Center, TN

Second weekend of January

This is a high energy, 5,000+ students weekend event hosted in Gatlinburg every year. This convention is filled with exciting Christian bands, artists, comedians, and speakers and serves as a great way to start the year for our students.


Middle & High School Retreat - Fall Creek Falls State Park, TN

Second week of June

We rent cabins, hike to amazing heights, swim at the base of waterfalls, have little cell phone service, and ultimately get an up-close look at God’s beauty and design. Every morning and evening we take a look in scripture as to what God says He accomplishes through His creation, and what we can learn by observing it.


High School Camp combined with other churches – Camp Calvary Wilderness 3

Third week of July

This is a 5 day true camp experience without electricity or distractions, where we target an area in our walk with God that modern high-schoolers experience the most struggle. Here, students are encouraged to take a deep look at their walk with God, and leave feeling empowered to live more confidently in a God who loves them and has given them a purpose.
