Carrying the Legacy of Christ’s Love
Statistics show that an overwhelming majority of students leave the church after high school. We believe that a large contributing factor to this is a lacking of clear purpose and their role within the church as a whole. Students are conditioned in many youth programs to be consumers rather than participants. We want to strive to equip students well for life after high school, especially in the areas of their faith life. To do so, we need a well rounded approach to Sunday mornings - one which address many different areas of growth. Below is our Sunday Schedule for students at Legacy Church.
Sunday mornings we have student programming during the first service (9am). Our goal is for it to be heavily focused on connection and relationships while studying the Word of God, and this is accomplished through Table Groups. We start in the adult service at 9am, and pull aside in our own space after worship. Once gathered in the SL room, students find tables and sit in groups of 6-7 students with a leader. We begin with community time and food (most often, donuts!), and then continue into a detailed study of scripture in our table groups.
When discussion is finished we will close with announcements, and then dismiss.
Our heart is still for students to be serving and involved in the adult service. So we encourage all students and families to stay after SL at 9am so that they can serve with Pioneer Kids (or attend service) during the 11am hour.
Student Life Groups
Our Student Life Groups meet at different times during the week where we dig into what it looks like to have a Christ centered relationship. We disciple students to help them grow deeper in their faith and knowledge of God's word.
Our vision for our Student Life Large Groups is to have gatherings that allow for spiritual and relational growth, while each is specifically targeted towards what high schoolers need vs what middler schoolers need. For this reason, High School students meet from 4pm-6pm on Sundays, and Middle School students meet from 6:30pm-8pm on Wednesdays.
For both programs; each event includes food, games, worship, teaching, and small groups - as well as adult leadership and student community. All students are welcome to join, and we look forward to meeting your student and getting them connected!
Deeper Dive Bible Study
Our Wednesday evening deeper dive bible study is designed as an opportunity for students who want to be intentional about going further in their study of God's Word. This group is for both middle and high school, and meets at the church office from 5pm-6pm. During this time, there is no food or music or games - simply in depth study and discussion of Scripture together.
