While the First Kids Ministry of the church marks the map for the next generation, the student ministry helps students TREAD the journey for themselves. Many young people are tempted to waste their youth on trivial things and that is why we provide opportunities for them to “Tread In” God’s Word, “Tread Up” in worship, and “Tread Out” in ministry. Each opportunity encourages the students to Tread the Christian journey in a unique way.

Even though we encourage students to tread the journey FOR themselves, we don’t want them to do it BY themselves. Pastor Aaron and the leaders of Tread work to set an example and walk with students and their parents while they tread the Christian journey.  But even more importantly we want to remind the students that is the work of God’s grace in them that defeat the enemy along the way.

“For your obedience is known to all, so that I rejoice over you, but I want you to be wise as to what is good and innocent as to what is evil. The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.” (Romans 16:19-20 ESV)

Tread In

Sundays @ 9:45am

Every Sunday morning we challenge the students, grades 6th – 12th, to step into God’s Word by using the Explore the Bible Curriculum. During this time they will open the Bible and learn to study it for themselves. This is not a time to be talked at but a time they are called to share.  In an age of biblical ignorance we believe this will prepare the students to study and apply the Scriptures wherever they find themselves.

Tread Up

Wednesday @ 6:00pm

Every Wednesday evening at 5:45 we welcome youth grades 6th-12th grade to join us on a journey from Genesis through Revelation.  This journey will take us three years as enjoy a view of the Gospel throughout Scripture. The goal is to provide students with encouragement to look to Christ as the tread through life.

Each week begins with a meal together provided by the church.  They will then move to the youth room for a joint worship time.  Afterwards they will split into groups of 6th-8th graders and 9th-12th graders for Bible study.  They will then break up into small groups for prayer and application.  We pray God uses this time to focus the direction of their lives toward Christ.

Tread Out


Each of the other two opportunities are meant to equip students for the daily opportunities to walk in way of the Lord. We seek to challenge the students regularly to new aspects of the Christian life.  Most of these culminate in our yearly participation in the Texas County Missionary Team, during the month of July.  This and other opportunities can be found on the youth calendar.
