Student Ministry

Impact (7th-8th Grade) and Crosswalk (9th-12th Grade)

 

Our middle school ministry consists of 7th and 8th grade students from all around the Lansing area. Impact meets Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:15pm in the Student Center.

Crosswalk is our high school ministry, consisting of 9th through 12th grade students from all around the Lansing area. We gather each Sunday night from 6:30pm to 8:30pm in the Student Center.

What we offer

We have a variety of ways your students can connect with other students and grow in their relationship with Christ.

Weekly Gatherings

Impact

Crosswalk

Camp and Retreats

We offer Camps and Retreats for both Impact and Crosswalk through the school year and in the summer. We have Summer Camps and Winter Retreats for both Impact and Crosswalk students, and a Fall Retreat for Crosswalk juniors and seniors. It’s a great opportunity for students to get away from their normal routine and spend time focused on God and friends. 

Student Mission Trips

Not everyone can pack up all their belongings and become a career missionary, but many of us can go on short-term mission trips. If you’ve never tried it, we encourage you to consider these benefits of taking the compassion of Jesus to another culture:

  1. You will encounter God’s heart.
  2. You will expand your limited perspective.
  3. You will become more grateful.
  4. You will discover spiritual family and lasting partnerships.
  5. You will expand the Kingdom of Jesus.

Of course, not everyone can hop on a plane and go to a foreign country for 10 days. Some people have health limitations or family pressures that make travel impractical. Don’t feel guilty if you are in that category. Instead, remember that those who can’t go to the mission field physically can go through prayer or financial support. And the reward will be the same.

When David defeated the Amalekites, he gave the same reward to the warriors who stayed behind to watch the baggage as he gave to the frontline soldiers who wielded swords (see 1 Sam. 30:22-25).

So, whether you go virtually or in person, let’s recognize the priority of missions. Let’s encourage every Christian to discover their role in God’s great plan to tell everyone about Jesus and His love.

Weekend Gathering

We encourage all our students to go to the weekend services in the Main Auditorium (Saturday 6:00 pm, Sunday 9:15 & 11:00 am). Students can also serve on our technical team and in a variety of roles in the Children’s Ministry.

For our 7th-9th grade students, we offer a community called “TheBridge” during the 11:00 am. Students attending TheBridge go to the worship of the main weekend service and then go to their classroom for a lesson specifically designed for them to spark discussion.
