We are so excited to have our new 7th graders joining us in youth ministry and we have a few events we have coming up just for them. On Sunday, August 12th our new 7th graders will officially join the youth ministry. Common Word (Sunday Morning Bible Study) starts at 9:30am. During the morning worship celebration, we will have our Family Milestone: Youth Passage and we will have a Family Lunch after the morning worship celebration. This lunch is for the entire family of the new 7th graders to give them an overview of what they can expect from our youth ministry in the next six years. That evening at 6pm, we will have 7UP SNAC to introduce the new 7th graders to the rest of Common People, play a few games and eat. We’ll also have a special gift for them. The following week we will have a couple 7UP events just for the new 7th graders to get to know us and for us to get to know them. We can’t wait to see all that God has in store for these 7th graders over the next six years as they are a part of Common People Ministries with us. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.





Common Word (9:30-10:30am)

Common Word is our Sunday Morning Bible Study. We are using a six-year plan of studying God’s word by challenging the students to dive deeper into knowing who God is and what we are to do with that knowledge. Emphasized throughout the plan are eight essential truths: God is, the Bible is God’s Word, People are God’s Treasure, Jesus is God and Savior, the Holy Spirit is God and Empowerer, Salvation is by Faith Alone, the Church is God’s Plan, and the Future is in God’s Hands.

Common Work (5:00-6:00pm)

Common Work is the time we have designated for discipleship. The purpose of Common Work is to to, in an intimate setting, teach students about being a follower of Christ. This will include video led series, small groups, times of discussion and service projects.



Common Play (3:30-5:45pm)

Common Play is our time after school that allows students, who will not have a ride back to church at 6pm for Common Place, a safe environment to hang out until service begins. Drinks and snacks are available to them at a low price and a meal is provided for all at 5pm by our food ministry.

Common Place (6:00-7:30pm)

Common Place is our weekly time of youth worship. This time usually consists of contemporary worship, small group times, innovative media presentations and videos, and encouraging message series from God’s Word directed toward understanding God’s purpose for our life.



Donut Girls – Girls Bible Study (6:45-7:45am)

Girls Bible Study is designed specifically for the girls to have time to look at God’s Word and apply it to their lives. There is more time given to specific areas girls in the youth ministry may be dealing with and allows the girls to ask questions they have. We are also teaching the girls basic Bible study skills to equip them for gleaning from God’s Word in their personal study.



Man Up – Guys Bible Study (6:45-7:45am)

Man Up is a Bible study specifically for the guys in our youth ministry. They meet every Friday morning at the Family Ministry Building to discuss relevant issues and what it really means to be a man. To man up means to step up to their God-given purpose of following Christ and leading others.




We use a six-year plan format because that is the maximum amount of time we have with students in youth ministry. Because this time is so short, but so important we have structured each year with a theme that we believe is essential for their spiritual growth and development. Everything within the planning of each year (and theme that goes with it) will add to or reinforce the theme. This means the messages and series on Wednesday nights, our discipleship time, our Bible studies and anything else we do as a ministry will align with the theme for the year.
