We want every student to be able to engage with our ministry in a way that their family is comfortable with. Elevate Student Ministries will be shifting to a hybrid gathering model.
Starting November 18th, we will offer 2 types of youth gatherings: online and at the church building.
Each gathering will have the same message content, but in a format that fits the gathering type. Each gathering will also have its own small group component. We encourage families to engage in these 2 gatherings as their comfort level allows.
Elevate Live is our online youth gathering and has games, giveaways, a message, worship, live chat, and more! Elevate Live streams on YouTube Wednesdays @ 6:15pm for both middle and high school students. Any student can tune in on any week!
- If your student plans to participate exclusively with our online gatherings, we’d love to get you connected to the Zoom small group following each program. Email Pastor Steve for the Zoom link that will be sent out each week.
On alternating weeks, Middle School & High School students will be offered a gathering at church on Wednesdays from 6:15-8:00pm. These in-person gatherings will have games, fun activities, a message, worship, & in-person small groups.
Doors will open and Check-in for church gatherings will begin at 6:00pm.
Safety Guidelines for Church Gatherings
We’re making physical gatherings as safe as possible. Here are our safety guidelines:
- Face coverings at all times
- Distancing of 6ft
- Hand sanitizing upon entry
- Sanitized surfaces before each gathering
- Health Screening (stay home if anyone in your household is sick or exposed to COVID)
- Quick, clear communication about any COVID exposure
- No food or beverages served (feel free to bring a water bottle)
If you cannot or prefer not to follow these guidelines, we invite you to join our online gathering.
Here’s what our gatherings will look like for the rest of the year.

Our Monday hangouts will still be happening, however, for any other special events such as the Christmas Party, will be placed on pause and decisions will be made closer to the time about whether we will be able to meet or not.
We are still hoping and planning for events to happen as normal for next year, and we are prepared to make changes as needed. We will be planning retreats and camps as usual, but will be ready to “pivot” when necessary.
