We think of our Sr High students (grades 9–12) less as “adolescents” and more as “apprentices.” We prepare them for Christian adulthood through Sunday School classes, Wednesday night gatherings, and other special activities and events. Through each facet of our ministry, we seek to point students to Jesus and an ever-increasing delight and maturity in him. Read through the pillars that guide our ministry vision and fuel our prayers.
