This Week in Student Ministry: Grow


We have been entrusted with a great responsibility to lead the next generation in faith. As the Psalmist declares of God’s work, “We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done.” (Psalm 78:4)

The result of our intentional communication of God’s character and works is “that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God” (v. 6-7).

It’s a joy to partner with you as you raise your children in the Lord. It’s our aim to see your efforts and our partnership result in coming generations of faith!

Let me tell you about some areas of partnership over the next couple of months.

Student Worship

Our Wednesday night programming aims to lead unchurched and churched students to follow Jesus and embrace His supremacy in their lives. As we say at Redemption, “It’s all about Him!” Currently, during our Student Worship services, we’re walking through key themes in the book of Proverbs, applying wisdom to our friendships, family relationships, words, emotions, and more.

We meet every Wednesday night from 6:30-8:00. Our services also prepare our students for greater interaction in their Student Groups on Sunday mornings.

Summer Send Camp

Summertime is right around the corner! Throughout the summer we’ll be participating in purposefully planned events to encourage the spiritual growth of your students. One of those key events is Summer Send Camp!

Send Camp is a unique experience for students at Redemption Church that combines the best elements of a summer camp and a mission trip. Throughout the week, our students will participate in worship, small-groups, recreation, service projects, and local outreach. Our students have consistently told us that this is the BEST WEEK of the summer!
