Journey is the name of of our Student Ministry. We believe we are all on a journey, both a physical on and a spiritual one. We need each other as we go along. So, at The Journey, we look out for each other and engage in activities that draw us closer not only to each other, but also to Jesus.
We meet each Sunday night at 6pm. We have dinner together, then usually have games, a program, and small groups. We end each week with a prayer circle. Some weeks we do an activity (on or off campus) and sometimes we play games and enjoy fellowship together.
We'd love to have you as a part of our group!
HIGH SCHOOL Getaway
Join us for a high school only adventure (grades 9-12) to Sterchi Lodge, perched on the side of a mountain near the TN-NC border. We'll stay up late, sleep in, eat well, fellowship and enjoy God's great outdoors. There is beautiful scenery, hiking, and a wonderful bald (Max Patch) where you can just lie back and take it all in. The weekend is December 8-10. Cost is $40. Friends are encouraged. For complete details and registration information, click here. (Print page 2 only for a printer friendly form)
Join us Friday, December 22 at Claire Gibson's house for our annual Christmas Party at 6:00PM. Bring a side dish or dessert to share (we'll provide the meat), and a wrapped unisex gift to exchange (under $10). For directions to the party, contact the Youth Office.
The Resurrection Retreat is Friday-Sunday, January 19-21, 2018 in Pigeon Forge. This is a spiritual enrichment weekend filled with music, messages, talent, fellowship and lots of other things.
