The Parkway Studentz Ministry desires to come along side the churchʼs purpose and vision to create a community in which students in grades 6-12 learn to... LOVE GOD, LOVE OTHERS, & LIVE THE MISSION.
We accomplish this a variety of ways. We have various ministry opportunities for students to be a part of throughout the year. Through these opportunities we strive to REACH students with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, help them GROW in their faith, train them to CONNECT with God and with others on a deeper level, and SEND them out to change their world with the life-changing good news of Jesus.
This is our Sunday morning Bible study groups for studentz 6th-12th grade. Studentz will be in a small group where they learn the truths of Scripture and how they can apply that truth to their lives! These groups are led by adults, who are Parkway members.
We have 2 options for studentz to be involved in a Life Group:
9:00 Small Groups
These groups meet at Grange Hall Elementary School. The groups start out in the cafeteria for a combined opening time of fellowship and announcements. From there, studentz break up into groups based on the grade they are in. We have a group for each grade.
The Gathering @5:00-6:45pm
For this fall, we are switching up our Sunday night program. We are now calling it “The Gathering”. The Gathering is a time where all students will come together for a time of student led worship. The night will include a time of connection through fun activities, worship led by our Studentz Praise Team, and a Bible study time led by Pastor Mike with other students. During the fall edition of The Gathering, we will be studying the book of Hebrews looking at how Jesus is our Great High Priest and what that means for our lives!
Fall 2017 The Gathering Schedule:
September 10th - Back2School Bash
December 10th - Studentz Christmas Bash
CONNECT - On break for the summer
This is where studentz will have an opportunity to CONNECT with God on a deeper level while CONNECTing with each other. Studentz will be challenged to dig deeper into God's Word and grow their faith through Worship, Bible study, and accountability through c_groups. Studentz are placed in a c_group based on their gender and grade.
These groups meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:00pm at Parkway. Wednesday night c_groups will start on October 4, 2017.
*There are a few c_group options that meet on other nights of the week. For more info about any of these, contact our office.*
