Where Can I Serve?
Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this ministry is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Students are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as ushering on Sunday mornings, to helping in the nursery.
Welcome & Hospitality
The Welcoming and Hospitality teams at T.E.X.T. fill an important role. They are involved in greeting newcomers, helping visitors, providing direction, passing out sermon notes, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The Welcoming and Hospitality team is a servant-hearted group of students whose ministry is integral to church life.
Music & Drama
God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many students get involved in our music and drama ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Still others get involved in drama. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry using their talents and gifts to glorify God.
Media & Technology
Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of this church. In an age of widespread technology, We have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. We also maintain an active Facebook and Twitter feed for additional church communication.
Kids Quest
Children have their own worship time where they can sing and praise the Lord, followed by a time of learning God's word in Sunday School classed catered to their age groups. Our friendly children's church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from crafts, to games, to object lessons — so that our kids can know the Lord better and hopefully someday come into a personal relationship with Jesus.
Our mentoring program exists to support and challenge students, on a one-to-one basis and over time, to GROW in maturity and in their faith, to help them DISCOVER God's purpose and ministry for their lives. Mentors will “be there” for students—caring for them, guiding them, being a role model, and encouraging them.
At student worship services, we gather together to connect with each other and encounter God through music, teaching and prayer. We believe when we come together as a student ministry, both on Sunday and throughout the week, God will use us to change the world.
Wednesdays at 6:00 pm
