Our Student ministry is called “Current” (like a river current). 
Like a river, Our students are moving closer and closer to adulthood each day. The current never stops moving downstream. While they are on this journey, we want to equip them with 3 major pieces. First, we want them to know who God is and fall in love with Him. The next phase of their journey is to know what God thinks of them and who he made them to be. We want them to love themselves like God does. The last phase of the journey is to take what they have learned about God and themselves out into the world. We want to help them learn how they will love, serve, and impact their neighborhood and community. We want them to love others. This is all based on Matthew 22:37-39 “Love God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
Through PreSchool and Elementary, we have helped students fall in love with Who God is and started learning Who He created them to be. We will continue this through Middle School. In High School we will focus more on developing a Passion for serving, caring, and having compassion for their friends, family, and community. By the time a student leaves our ministry we want them to have made their faith their own and know how they will live it out when no one else is watching.

CURRENT is made up of a time of games, worship, teaching and small groups where they will be led by an adult leader and be given space to share life with other students of their same grade and gender. CURRENT is a great place for students to connect to God, a community of peers and a caring consistent small group leader. Hope you will join us on Thursday nights at Avondale East!

At Fellowship, the weekend services have been a time that we desire for students to worship with their families and serve within the church. We do this to give students a picture of the importance of being a part of the larger church and not just our student ministry. We also want to take the opportunity to develop gifts and passions to serve the body of Christ.
