What is the Student Ministry?

The Cape Alliance Student Ministry is for all students in grades 6-12. We are a group of fun-loving, goofy people that want to know Jesus and share His love with others. We do that, in large part, by having lots of fun! Our regular get-togethers (Sundays at 11am and Wednesdays at 7pm) include lots of time for hanging out and playing games. Yet, that is not what we are all about. We are about learning what it means to be a Jesus follower in today’s world. That is something we take very seriously.
 
We’re serious about having fun. We have a blast playing games and hanging out. We’re also serious about knowing God and making Him known. We do a Bible study each week, because we want to know what God is doing in our world, and where we fit in to what He’s doing. We also challenge teens to get into God’s Word every day, and to live out their faith in their daily lives.
 
We do this through our two main gatherings, though we do make sure to also meet up informally just to make sure we can live our lives together in community. Our student ministry does a lot of other events too, like concerts, lock-ins, outreach events, service projects, movie nights, and camping trips.
 

 

Student Ministry Gatherings

Pause and Refresh
Sundays at 11:00 AM

Pause & Refresh is a student worship hour with the desire of taking a break from our regular lives to meet with God and pause in His presence. We learn together, worship together and pray together; thus, growing together as a group closer to God. The main goal of this gathering is to learn how to take care and develop your own spiritual life. It is about empowerment and training to “do it yourself”. So here, we gear the Bible studies so that the students develop a passion for Scripture and the tools so they can read and understand it for themselves. We encourage and discuss spiritual disciplines and building practices into their lives that will stay with them once they head out on their own.

 

The Nomad Lounge
Wednesdays at 7:00 PM

The Nomad Lounge is a weekly hangout on Wednesday evenings for teens to meet up, have a good time and experience God in a new and exciting way. This gathering serves a few purposes. First, it provides a safe place for teens to met up and be in active community together (this is a non-phone gathering). Through our hang-out time and games, students learn social skills, develop deeper relationships and have opportunities to outwardly process things going on in their life. During the group time, we discuss important topics and issues in their lives through the lens of the Gospel and the whole-ness of Scripture.
