LRC Student Ministry exists to lead students in grades 6-12 to become full participants in the body and mission of Jesus Christ. We believe this happens by partnering with parents, surrounding students with an invested adult and peers in a small group, and providing opportunities to serve and share Christ with others. In addition to the two weekly environments listed below students are involved in mission trips, camps, retreats and more. As a result our students will be changed by Christ in order become world changers.
Refuge is our main weekly student ministry environment for 6th-12th graders.It takes place every Wednesday night from 6:30 – 8:15.
Our 2019 Fall Kickoff for Refuge will be August 21.
Every Sunday from 9 – 9:50 AM students in grades 6-12 get together for Bible study.
This Summer we are engaged with the Beatitudes the begin Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5. We are allowing ourselves to be invited to receive these blessings. Far too often we try to look through the list of the Beatitudes and desire to achieve that blessing, but Jesus desires that we open our hearts to receive them from him.
We believe serving others is important to the spiritual growth of a student. Therefore, we provide opportunities for students in grades 6-12 to serve within our church body every Sunday morning. Students may serve as assistants or co-leaders in LRC Kids Ministry or assist with Children’s Church and our nurseries.
Additionally, students learn to serve in other areas of ministry at Refuge by leading worship or lending their instrumental talents to our youth band.
We serve through mission experiences and local ministry activities throughout the year.
