Anthem Students-High School
Who: 9-12th grade students
The truth is, over half of the teenagers who have grown up in church walk away from the church when they get out on their own. It's not surprising when we see students who have yet to develop their own relationship with the Father go out on their own only to struggle now that mom and dad and church as they know it aren't around anymore. The secret of those who make it is real, authentic relationship. Ears to hear and eyes to see. We believe high school is the time to develop the skills to recognize and respond to the voice of the Father. It is the time to go deep and get strong. High School is the perfect time to solidify dependence on Jesus. You will see high school students participating in the Anthem family in the same way adults do. They fill our worship, prayer, and weekend children's teams. They are a part of missional communities, discipleship huddles, and outreach events. Rather than creating their own thing, we've created one thing and invited them into every aspect of it.
Anthem Students-Middle School
Who: 6th, 7th and 8th grade students
Where: Anthem House Church
When: Sunday 10:30am
Leader: David Smith
Middle School is weird. You're no longer a kid, but you're still not an adult. There are feelings and pimples and hair and body odor and just weird things all around. We get that. And we actually celebrate it! Instead of trying to fit middle schoolers into a box, we've learned to embrace them in their reality, to communicate grace and truth and to go deep in relationship. Middle School is the perfect time to learn dependence on Jesus.
