What do we teach?

We will challenge students to embrace the faith and make it their own, walking in God’s ways by teaching on such topics as:

Jesus’ Message & Ministry, Jesus’ Death & Resurrection, The Holy Spirit, Identity in Christ, Prayer, Worship, The Bible, Sharing our Faith, Serving Others

Can I invite friends to PowerLife?

We encourage students to bring friends, but suggest after visiting twice that they register to be permanently placed in a small group.

Key Mile Markers on a student’s journey towards embracing the faith:

Grades 7 & 8 Retreats, Confirmation, Small Groups, Summer Camp

Small Groups

PowerLife Small Groups are a key component of PowerLife and consist of 8-10 students of the same grade and gender and two Small Group Leaders. Small groups create a safe place for students to discuss questions about God, while encouraging each other in their daily walks with Christ. To allow for the rapid growth Youth Ministries is experiencing, when students reach 10 per group, sub-groups will be formed for small group discussion time. In this way, students can enjoy being part of their larger group but continue to invite friends and have more chance for meaningful small group discussions.


Retreats are a key strategy to students in grades 7 through 12 embracing the faith and living the faith. When you register for PowerLife and Catalyst; the registration for an annual retreat is included. Retreats are typically a highlight for students, and a unique opportunity to unplug from everyday routine. This helps build relationships in the small group, and fosters more meaningful discussions on
regular programming nights.


Confirmation offers students the opportunity to embrace the faith, making their faith in Jesus Christ their own. Confirmation is not the “end” of one’s faith journey, nor is it equivalent to salvation. Confirmation students affirm they are on a personal journey to know Christ more. Participation in Confirmation is an optional part of PowerLife* and students are invited to participate whether they plan to confirm or not.  *No additional registration for grade 8 needed.

Grades 9-12…
