Our 6th–12th grade students gather together weekly for doctrinally-sound teaching that draws out the heart, calls sinners to repentance, and equips the saints for a lifetime of faithful gospel ministry (Prov. 20:5; 2 Tim. 3:16–17, 4:1–5). On the last Sunday of every month, one of our elders joins us for Crucial Conversations, which are mornings dedicated to unpacking important student-posed questions pertaining to theology, life struggles, apologetics, cultural trends, etc.
In the spirit of Proverbs 27:17, the teaching time gives way to small group discussion. Small groups are assigned age/gender-specific groups geared toward applying the Word in community through intentional conversation, accountability, and prayer. We desperately need consistent community, so students are assigned to the same small group for the school year.
