Providence Student Ministry exists to glorify God by introducing all middle and high school students to Jesus Christ to grow them up to love and worship Him. We seek to partner with parents in discipling the next generation to love God’s word, exalt Jesus in their lives, and equip them for the mission to go and make disciples.


Student Life Groups: We meet in Prisms as a large group to fellowship and welcome all students then transition to small groups on the 3rd floor to discuss key doctrines of the Christian faith to grow them up to love and worship Jesus. We will have two main hours (9:30 & 11 AM) for students to attend while the other hour we encourage you to worship together with the church family. Both hours are provided to help support family engagement at Providence.


Refinery (6-7:30pm): During the Fall, our students will gather as a large group in Prisms to worship, then transition to small groups (grade & gender separate) to help students build godly relationships, accountability, and apply truths related to topic. This semester we will teach our students the Fear of Man versus the Fear of the Lord. Proverbs 29:25 says “The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.” This series will help our students see that we have replaced God with people. The fear of man has crippled many believers causing anxiety, shame, and poor decisions. We will teach and instill courage into our students to grow in their desire in seeking the Lord’s approval and acceptance more than man.

Summer Book Studies

Join us every Thursday from July 7th – July 28th from 6:30 -8 PM to fellowship and study the book of Proverbs together. Let’s seek the Lord through the words of Solomon and gain a heart of wisdom. Stay tuned for details on host home locations!
