Growing deeper. Reaching further.
SHADY GROVE STUDENTS
Shady Grove Students encourages 7th-12th graders to grow deeper in Christ, and reach further into our community, and beyond, as His hands and feet through weekly Bible teaching, group discipleship, serving those in need in our area, yearly mission trips, camps, and so much more.
“And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:6-7 (NIV)
Our goal is for students to LOOK to Jesus for their identity and LIVE based on that truth.
Sunday Night: The Grove
Our most accessible and open night of the week where we see the bulk of our students come and enjoy refreshments together, engage in small groups, worship through song, hear solid Bible teaching, and join in fun activities together.
Wednesday Night: The Table
A smaller, more intimate, setting where students come to focus on growing specifically in their knowledge of the Bible, theology, and wrestle with tough questions about faith. This gathering is often driven by questions brought by the students who attend.
