Meeting students where they are
Grades 6–12

We accept students where they are with the same eagerness God has in reaching out to us—no strings attached! Our professional and volunteer team models the journey of faith and life in Christ and encourages students to journey further in their own relationships with God. Students have fun and make great friends. They are free to ask questions, challenge answers and experience Jesus Christ personally and honestly.

At Boost, middle school students gather to have fun, explore faith and engage in small group conversation about the message each week. Through music, fun games and talks, we exchange ideas, thoughts, and conversation surrounding our faith journey.

We worship together, participate in discussion groups with caring adult leaders, play games and mixers to get moving, and hear a message related to middle school students. Bring a Bible or borrow one of ours.

Our ninth grade students spend the year gaining a basic understanding of the Christian faith, being challenged in a very personal way to understand what they believe and why, and making their faith their own. It’s a year of fun experiences and spiritual growth as they embark on a journey of deeper life and faith in Jesus.

Students Grade 10–12

En Route iconEn Route (Wednesdays)
Contact Lucas Hansen

Students in grades 10–12 are beginning to understand what the journey of life is all about. To journey means “to progress, to make headway toward a desired goal.” We call it being En Route. Some students desire to grow in their relationships with Jesus, others are just trying to figure out who God is and wonder if faith is real. In En Route, we welcome all students and invite them to trust Jesus and experience life in all of its fullness.

Student Camps & Retreats 

Camps and retreats give students an opportunity to step outside of their usual routines and surroundings. It is a place to ask good questions, get to know others, worship, reflect, and listen to God’s Word.
