Primetime is an energetic worship opportunity geared for students 6th-12th grade. Each week we have great music, games, practical application, and a message to help students grow in their faith. We meet Wednesday nights on the 3rd floor of the Downtown Campus North Building as follows: On the first Wednesday of every month, Middle School and High School students worship together beginning at 6:30pm. Other Wednesdays, Middle School students worship at 6pm and High School students worship at 7pm.

Upstate Connect Groups

Downtown Campus

Our Connect Groups are an opportunity for students to learn more about God in a smaller group setting. Our groups are separated by grades and meet on the 3rd floor of the Worship Center - North Building. This is an excellent time to connect with God and with other students. Groups begin at 10:00am on Sunday mornings.


Discipleship is a small group opportunity for students who want to take their faith to the next level. Our groups are broken down by age and gender and offers a much more open setting for dialogue about faith. Students grow together through Bible study, prayer, serving and reaching out into their community. Discipleship groups meet Sunday evenings at 6:15pm in the College St. Cafe. We meet in semester based systems during the school year.
