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 Students Connect Groups

Our Connect Groups are an opportunity for students to
learn more about God in a smaller group setting.

At our Downtown Campus, our groups are separated by grades and
meet on the 3rd floor of the Worship Center - North Building,
at 10:00am on Sunday mornings.

At our Harrison Bridge Campus, our group meets at 10:00am, Sunday mornings in the Youth Room. This is an excellent time to connect
with God and with other students.
