Welcome to the student ministry page for SMDCOG! We exist to guide students to Jesus Christ in all we do. This is done through inward events (connecting with each other), outward events (connecting and serving those in need), and upward programming (guiding those to Christ). It is our goal to see our students in a mature relationship with Jesus Christ by the time they graduate High School.
Here's a glimpse into what our worship was like at 365!
We meet most Sunday nights at the church from 6-8pm in the youth room. We typically spend the first hour eating a meal together, and playing games. The second hour we worship together and have a message.
This is a time where you will meet in a leaders home and connect together as a group by sharing current victories and struggles. This is also a time where you will go deeper into Scripture and the life of Jesus to better understand his plan in your life.
Throughout each month there are other events we do as a group. This will all be located on the youth calendar. These events include fun things like game nights, or Lip Sync Battles. We also like to go and serve those in our community by doing service events. Lastly we go to conferences and conventions to get our focus back on Jesus in our busy lives.
This is SMD Students philosophy of Youth Ministry. There are 4 stages beginning with "attending," and ending with "shepherding." Most students will not get to shepherding but our goal as a ministry is to get each student to strengthening by their high school graduation. This is the model we follow and the lens plan our events through.
