Theme for the Year
Our theme for the 2016-2017 school will be “Upside Down: How Christ Changes Everything.” It is easy to segment our lives into compartments, with the religious aspects High School low res web graphic for high school pagerelegated to a few specific spiritual activities, and the rest left undisturbed by our faith. The Bible, however, presents a much more epic and integrated approach to life. Christ came to redeem us- all of us and every part of our lives. There is no aspect of daily life that is left untouched by the invading and transforming grace of Jesus Christ. School, identity, sports, relationships, career; none of these should be cordoned off from our faith as if they were strictly secular pursuits. Likewise, spiritual things like the local church are intended to be all-encompassing realities that have the power to change our lives and the world. This year we want to help students see from Scripture how Christ changes everything, turning it all upside down in the best way.
High School Group Gatherings
Most Sundays the high school group meets during the teaching portion of the worship service. The focus of this time is on God’s Word: explaining, proclaiming, and applying the Bible to all of life. On the first weekend of the month, we meet on Saturday night, from 7:00PM to 8:30PM. This monthly Saturday night service includes worship, teaching, fellowship, and discussion. On the first Sunday of the month, high school students are encouraged to stay in the main teaching with their parents. All gatherings take place in the High School Room, which is on the north end of the building.
Small groups meet regularly to help students grow in Christ. Led by dedicated adults, these groups guide students in exploring the Bible, sharing life together, and praying for one another. These groups meet at various times and locations. Please contact the church to inquire about joining a small group.
Work + Worship
Several times throughout the year our students partner with their peers from Neighborhood Fellowship (Indianapolis) for a joint service project and student-led worship.
We want to cultiave Christian community and encourage Christian friendships within our group and within our church body. To this end we put on special events such as fun outings, game nights, and family pitch-ins. If you would like to be on the email list for high school special events, please contact the church office. See the link below for our full list of events this year.
Anchors Away is a Christian worldview and apologetics class for high school seniors that meets for several weeks in the spring. The purpose is to strengthen participants' theological understanding, encourage their spiritual growth, and equip them to confidently live out their faith in the college years and beyond.
