Junior High Ministry | JHM

Sunday mornings at 9:15A in Champaign & Urbana

We have an irresistible program designed for 6th-8th grade students. The students meet in the Oasis Venue in Champaign and the Atrium in Urbana. Here, students experience a great time of games, worship, teaching, and groups where they connect, discover, and respond to God’s Word.

After Junior High service, we invite our Jr. High students to attend the 10:45A adult worship service or to serve in another morning ministry. We believe that 6th-8th graders can use their lives to make a difference by being kingdom workers, so we strongly encourage our jr. high students to serve in a ministry. Whether inside the church as an early childhood worker, a greeter, tech ministry, etc., or outside of the church someplace in the community, we want students to respond through service.



High School Ministry | HSM Nights

Sunday nights at 6:00P in the FIRST Champaign Oasis Venue

Each week we have a worship service created specifically for high school students (9th-12th grade) followed by groups, dinner, and a time to hangout with other students and leaders. Our goal is to help students surrender to Jesus.

After the service students will break up into adult-led groups based on schools. Each group is led by adult leaders who love Jesus, who care about students, and who want to partner with parents in making Jesus a real part of the student’s lives. Groups are the best place for high school students to get connected and into community with other students and adult leaders. Groups help students grow in their faith and in their relationship with Jesus.
