Our Purpose

The purpose of Southwest Students is to see students be transformed in Christlikeness  as they grow in their relationship with God. We believe that our students are the future of the church and we desire to walk alongside them in partnership as they take ownership of their faith. We do this by creating a fun environment with games, worship, leadership opportunities, Gospel centered lessons and small groups. 

Sunday Morning Worship:
Every Sunday morning at 11 am our middle schoolers come together for a time of games, worship and teaching. All 5th-8th graders are invited to come worship with us in the youth room (first room on the right when you walk in the main entry way). 

DRIVE:
 Our goal is to DRIVE students to have a closer relationship with Christ. Every Sunday from 5-7:30 pm our high school students (8th-12th grade) come together for dinner, games, worship, teaching and small groups.

Opportunities to Serve:
Small Group Leader - Small Group Leaders are asked to attend each Sunday night youth group. They interact with students during dinner and game time, lead our guys and girls small groups and pray for students throughout the week. 

Providing Dinner - We would love for you to sponsor dinner one Sunday. This is a huge blessing to all of the students and leaders.
