Sun 11A | Room 317
High School service meets in Room 317 of the Worship Center at 11A. This is a gathering with worship, teaching, and connection geared for high school students. The vision is for it to be as student-led and interactive as possible in order to empower students to take ownership of the gathering. This will happen through students serving on our six Ministry Teams: Welcome, Tech, Worship, Connection, Teaching, and Prayer. We would love to have your student worship and serve with us!
