antioch Student Ministry (6th-12th GrADE)


We're here to help middle and high schoolers follow Christ in a world that often rejects Him and welcome others in a world that often rejects them. We are a place where anybody can belong, and we would love for you to join us! 


We want today's youth to know they are a vital part of today's church. That's why our students worship as part of the congregation during our 8:15 and 10:30 services. 

We also offer Sunday School in the Teen Center for our Middle and High School students each Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m.

With discussion based Bible stories, sword drills, and memory verses, we use this time to become more and more familiar with scripture and how it can shape our lives.


Welcome to Thirst! Meeting from 5:30-7:15 in the Teen Center (the older-looking church building), this is a youth-oriented worship service designed to equip students to take ownership of their faith. A typical evening includes opportunities to build meaningful relationships with other students, dinner, singing, Bible study, and a time to split into smaller groups to discuss faith and encourage one other.


Wanting to dig deeper into faith?  Our Middle and High School students meet for bible study and discussion at 6:30 p.m. in the Teen Center. (We also offer a meal for all ages at 5:30 in the fellowship hall.)
