Special opportunities for involvement

  • Disciplemaking Small Group:  This opportunity is designed for high school youth that are growing in their faith and want to be deeply challenged, equipped, trained as a leader, and stretched.  Students in this small group will have the unique opportunity to influence positive change in the Soul Garage ministry, develop strong leadership skills, and learn to use their gifts and strengths to build up the body of Christ.
  • Junior Awana Leaders:  Any junior high students who want to both grow deeper in their spiritual walk and serve other can get involved in the Junior Awana Leader program.  From 6:00-6:30pm, students will have a Bible study time and then from 6:30-7:00pm, students will volunteer in the Awana Sparks and Cubbies programs.
