Monday Night Student Ministry
What’s the difference between knowledge and wisdom? Knowledge is about facts and information. Wisdom is taking those facts and information and actually apply it. On Monday nights we help students take knowledge they learn from the Bible and apply it to their lives. Just knowing you should love your neighbor as yourself isn't enough. We need to figure out how to do it and then go and do it.
During the school year, we meet on Mondays from 7-9pm. See our yearly calendar here. We work through series of different topics talking about questions like: "What does healthy friendship look like?" "Why is there evil in the world?", and "Who am I and why was I created?". We hope to give students a solid foundation of truth that they can build their life on.
We also want to give space for students to know each other and be known. To do this, we need to move from large group teaching into smaller spaces where students can be individually heard and process with one another. We spend intentional time each week in "Life Groups." These are small groups of students, split up by age and sex, that spend time talking about the lesson. This is one way we help students to process and apply each night’s teaching at a more personal and relational level.
Wherever you are in your faith journey, you are welcome to come to Westgate student ministry on Monday night and learn about the truth and wonder of God.
students meet in the Atrium at 7:00pm to check-in, and then head directly to the gym for snacks, hangout, and high energy games! From there we head to a time of worship with the high schoolers led by a mix of high/middle school students. After worship we head to the Middle School Room where students will be challenged by God’s Word and take part in an interactive lesson that gets them engaged and thinking about God’s calling for their lives. Following the lesson, our students will break off into their life groups where they can dig deeper into what they have just heard. There they can talk through how to live these challenges out and apply them to their everyday life. This Life Group time is so important because it gives our students the opportunity to talk through everything that is going through their head and hearts with trusted leaders. We are so excited to see what God has in store for our students, and can’t wait for an unforgettable year! Let’s Do This Thing!
students meet in the Atrium at 7:00pm to check-in. Look for the flag that says "Students" outside the atrium doors. Our night begins with time to hang out, talk to new and old friends, play a game, and of course eat some snacks. From there we head into a time of worship with high schoolers and middle schoolers leading our student ministry band. After a time of musical worship, high school students will be taught an engaging, practical truth anchored in the Bible. This is done in a casual setting that allows students to ask questions and participate. Students will end the night in "Life Groups" talking about what was presented and asking questions about what they think and how they would live it out. Consistent adult leaders help facilitate our Life Groups and play a key role in helping student grow in their faith.
