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 in the College Street Cafe at the Downtown Campus from 6:00-7:30pm.

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.
