Student Ministry

We see several hundred students each month from 40+ schools in the Richmond area. We want to develop relationships with students, and foster an understanding of their relationship with God.

As we move inside, our Youth Group Gathering has been redesigned to create a sanitary, touchless environment that allows for physical distancing.

Sunday 6pm Youth Group is meeting in-person, and here is what you can expect!

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Ephesians 2:8-10
