Rooted in Truth... Reaching in Love

Student Ministry

Staples Mill Students (SMS)

Our desire is to see students’ hearts captured by the gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that parents are the primary faith trainers of their children, and we are committed to equipping and encouraging parents to make fervent followers of Jesus Christ in their homes. Our weekly student gatherings are focused on  the 4 E’s: leading students into life changing worship experiences (Encounter), genuine love and fellowship with one another (Encourage), equipping in the critical areas of their walk with Christ (Equip), and launching them into the neighborhood and nations with the gospel (Engage).
