Student (Middle & High School)

Welcome to ROCK Student Ministries! This is a ministry where our vision is simply this: Students' Faith Growing Together! ROCK Student Ministries exists to help students build a foundation in their faith that will make them lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ.

  • What We're about

    The purpose of the Student Ministry is to assist the Church and families in building each student’s faith. We hope to do this by developing several core aspects of student ministry that are Christ-centered: community, discipleship, service, evangelism, and worship. We hope to be able to minister to all Middle and High School Students and their families and help bring them closer to Christ! "...Yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the ROCK..." -Matthew 7:24-27 If you have any questions or would like some more information about ROCK Student Ministries please contact James Riggs, our Youth Minister.

  • ROCK Sunday School (Sundays 11-12PM)

    ROCK Sunday School is a great time for our middle and high school students to come together to hear an interactive study of God's Word.  Our middle school and high school students meet upstairs.

  • rock hangout (Sundays 5PM)

    Sunday fun day (first sunday of the month from 4:30-6:30PM)

    ROCK Hangout is designed to strengthen students relationships with games and occasional outside activities.


    Also on the 1st Sunday of every month we will pause from our Bible study to have our Sunday Fun Day.  This is a time full of games that has been created for us to develop unity within our group and engage newcomers.

  • rock fuel (wednesdays 6-8PM)

    ROCK Fuel is a high energy fun time filled with games, worship, a message and small groups.  During this time students will be empowered to live out the Gospel in their lives while strengthening their relationship with Christ and one another.

  • Parents

    We truly believe that the success of a Student Ministry can only be brought through the parents. It is our goal as a Student Ministry to not "be the parents," but to assist the parents in growing their students relationship with the Lord. Parents - YOU ARE THE KEY!!! And simply put - WE WANT TO HELP!!! Here are some ways you can get involved: Sign up for our weekly email list - this includes discussion starters from our lessons in Sunday School & at ROCK, plus will let you know of any events or deadlines coming up that week! This will help stir up conversation with your student(s) and get you better connected to our student calendar


    Please feel free to contact us at any time. We want to be an aide to you and are always open to talking with you. If you have any questions please contact James Riggs.

  • Volunteer

    We are always in need of adults who have a passion for helping students grow in their faith. We don't want just bodies, but people who will take an interest in the lives of the students and live life with them. If you are interested in volunteering in ROCK Student Ministries set up an interview with James Riggs, our Youth Minister.
