Rise student ministries is Seymour Heights' intentional effort to invest in the lives of high school and middle school students. Because we have been raised to new life with Christ we want students to RISE to FOLLOW, DECLARE, and SERVE. We follow as we let Christ guide and transform our lives, declare Him through our worship and witness of His work in our lives, and serve by letting his love be displayed through our lives and into the lives of others.
During our second service we provide a teaching time for all students 7-12th grade upstairs in the student ministry wing. This class is meant to challenge students to wrestle with truths in scripture and build a faith and understanding of their own. During our second service we encourage all students to attend our worship time with the body. If you are only attending second service on a given weekend our students should be attending the regular services downstairs with the rest of the body. We believe that our primary youth ministry time is on Wednesday nights and that when the body meets on a larger scale our students should be a part of those meetings so that they can begin to find their place in the larger church.
Our Rise midweek program begins at 6:13pm and finishes up around 8pm. However, the student ministry room will be open after school until after our meeting time has ended. So any students needing to arrive early or stay a bit late are welcome to do so.
In addition to our weekly meeting times we desire to keep students moving by providing activities outside of the church. We attempt to do at least one activity a month that could range from a bowling event to an out of town weekend conference like CIY Believe or TCTC. To stay informed about upcoming events we ask all new parents to join our parent mailing list. You do this by emailing our family pastor Nick Defore.
