Connect Student Ministry is a unique and dynamic ministry geared toward 6-12 grade students. Our main focus is Connecting Teens to Christ.
We have four principles we stress, that sums up what we are all about.
CONNECT - We desire that our teens first and foremost be connected to Christ and the Bible. We strive to do this through our Wednesday evening service only for teenagers, called The Connection, which meets at 645 at our Student Center.
GROW - We want students to grow in their faith and in their friendships. Our Sunday School class is more than just another lecture or sermon. It is designed to be a bible based discussion relevant to the issues that our students face. We also have a couple of activities planned each month for fun and fellowship. See calendar.
SERVE - Students at Oak Glen are more than just statistics. We have many opportunities for them to serve such as; helping in Children's class, ushering & greeting, and singing in choir to name a few. We strive to find a place for each student to use their individual talent for Gods glory.
REACH - Our simple process will help students reach out to their friends and get them connected to Christ.
