WHAT WE'RE TEACHING THESE DAYS
Scripture reminds us that we love God not only with our hearts but also with our minds. STU gives us an opportunity for the reworking of our minds through offering a variety of courses throughout the year. We meet every Sunday at 11am on the east wing (i.e left side) of the worship center.
HIGH SCHOOLERS ARE WALKING THROUGH MARK
We’re digging deeper into the current Sunday sermon with an in depth look through reflection questions & discussion.
Our middle school students are doing a Right Now Media curriculum
On Tuesday evenings:
The theme of prayer is a strong one throughout the Bible, and
Jesus gives us many examples of how to pray. Prayer is an integral part of our lives as Christians. Prayer is not just something that we devote a few minutes out of our days to, but it should be the very filter for every aspect of our lives.
Joy is an expression of the hope that we have for new life in Jesus. To express joy does not mean that we are never sad or are always on a “spiritual mountaintop”. The fact that we have this hope empowers us to rejoice in the middle of the trials of life.
We have so much to be thankful for. Our God is so generous and faithful to us, his people. The most appropriate response in any situation is to give thanks to him for all that we have. An attitude of gratitude has amazing power to open our hearts and receive a fulfilling relationship with God.
Advent is a season of expectation. It is both a season of expectation of Jesus’ coming, as well as the beginning of the Christian year. We will be joining in the lessons of the broader congregation and seeing what new Advent-ure awaits for us in the coming year!
Our fundraisers help teens participate in our ministry activities. But if there is ever a greater need, please contact Pastor Josh and we will work with you.

We welcome your presence
The youth ministry maintains an “open door” policy toward parents. You are welcome to visit one of our programs at any time. We want you to see for yourself what your student is experiencing week to week. You can take a closer look at our events and various classes by downloading our current Family Ministry Fall Guide HERE.
We value your input
Feel free to share your input, concerns, questions, comments, and observations with our staff. We want to partner with you in any way we can.
WE HAVE A PARENT GROUP FOR THAT
Parenting teens is one the greatest human joys.
It is also one of the hardest human tasks.
We want parents to succeed. So Burdette and Nedra Lahr have stepped up to lead a group dedicated to helping parents navigate the years between 6th through 12th grade.
Every Sunday at 11AM while our 6-12 graders are meeting in Stillmeadow Teen University, we have a group designed by two parents of teenagers for other parents of young people. Sign up at HERE
We encourage your involvement
We are ALWAYS on the lookout for parents who have a special place in their heart for teens and are open to joining our volunteer team. Our volunteers help run events, lead small groups, organize ministry opportunities, and more. If you would like to be involved on a regular basis, we’d love to talk to you personally!
We need your stuff
This doesn’t happen often, but occasionally we need to borrow something that we simply can’t provide on our own. Camping gear, sports equipment, mini vans, vacation homes and the like are items that you may be willing to loan out on occasion to help us in a pinch.
WE ARE PUTTING TOGETHER A REMIX SNACK TEAM
We are searching for parents/guardians to help us out with our snacks for Remix on Tuesday nights. If interested, please click HERE
