Sunday School: 10:15am-11:15am
Following our first service at 9am on Sunday morning, students gather in the Neos Big Room located in the Jubilee building. This time begins with fellowship and announcements before the students are released to individual classes. Each class has the opportunity to have a time of discussion about the sermon as well as receive a lesson from their respective teachers that is taken from the sermon and is focused on Biblical truths and discipleship. This is a great time to ask questions and dig deeper in their faith with their Sunday School teachers and other students their age. We have three classes for High School students: 9th Grade, 10th Grade, and 11th-12th Grade. Class sizes average between 15-20 students. Sunday School ends around 11:15am. Students who did not attend our first service are then encouraged to attend our second service at 11:15 – The Branch.
Sunday SERVE Nights: 5:30pm-6:30pm
Every other Sunday evening our teens meet in the Jubilee building for focused and intentional service groups. We have five options for students on Sunday nights. Students can either go to the service in the sanctuary, or that can participate in one of four groups. These groups are focused on: games, worship band, tech, and missions. We have designed each of these groups to help our students develop leadership skills within the larger church body and teach them skills that will help give them opportunities to serve directly within Neos Ministries. Each group will be comprised of Middle School and High School students as well as a variety of college students and adults. This is a great opportunity for intergenerational fellowship and learning together! Alternating Sundays will include times when our students are leading worship during the service, or participating in other service projects around the church or around town.
Wednesday Night Worship: 6:00pm-7:30pm
Starting at 4:30 when our gym doors open, students begin to gather and fellowship together. From 6:00 until 7:15 our students participate in games, small groups, and a teaching time. Games and small groups are both centered around the lesson being taught that night. Game time includes both physical and mental games. For small groups, students are split up by age and gender with an adult who helps leads a time of discussion. Small Groups include: High School Girls, 9th-10th grade boys, and 11th-12th grade boys. At 7:15 students transition into the Neos Big Room for worship time that includes Middle and High School, as well as our college students and young adults. It is our desire that this time fosters relationships that span generations. The focus of Wednesday nights is to be an entry point into the youth group and the church as whole, but also a place where students can group deeper in their relationships with Christ and others.
