Student ministry is a huge part of Discovery Church! We know that middle school and high school is an exciting but also trying time. During these transformative years, students are more receptive to Christ and most in need of an accepting community. At Discovery we provide a place where teenagers can find both. Our goal is to help middle school and high school students develop a faith that is Personal, a faith revealing their Purpose, and a faith filled with Power.
In addition to our church-wide services we have two gatherings specific to students. On Sunday mornings at 9:30am we have Ekplesso. The Bible tells us that upon hearing Jesus people were often "astounded." That word is translated from Greek the word Ekplesso. On Sundays our goal is to dive a little deeper into God's word and experience Ekplesso!
On Wednesdays at 6:00pm we have Disruption. Filled with games, music, food and fun – at Disruption middle school and high school students can give God a chance to disrupt their lives and learn to be disruptive for Him.
Fall Retreat - August 24-26th
Discovery students grades 6-12th are invited to a weekend in the Wilderness for our annual youth retreat. This year we are heading to Fall Creek Falls State Park (near Spencer, TN). We will swim in rivers, hike across swinging bridges, stand beneath waterfalls, watch meteor showers, and climb around a ropes course, all while singing, talking and learning about Jesus! The price is $75 (this includes your ropes course fee and retreat t-shirt); to reserve a spot you must register and pay a deposit of $20 by August 15.
