Thornapple’s Student Ministry enables students to grow in their faith, challenges them to serve others and honor God with their life and helps them to connect with other students. Student Ministries includes High School (9th through 12th grade) and Middle School (6th through 8th grade). We offer opportunities to learn, grow and build relationships on Sunday mornings/evenings, Wednesday evenings and other times throughout the year (retreats, mission trips, service projects, bike/hike trips and other activities). Also, you might notice we like food!

Sundays

September through May

  • Middle School Huddle | Sunday mornings*, during the 10:30 service. Games, teaching, small groups and food.
  • High School Huddle | Sunday mornings*, during the 10:30 service. Hanging out, worship teaching, small groups and food.
  • High School Small Group Sundays | Second Sunday evening of each month (Oct.-May) small groups meet offsite at a host family’s house (locations vary, small group leaders will contact students with info).

* We believe it is important in faith development for the generations of the church to worship together. Therefore, on the first Sunday of every month, everyone 2nd grade and up gathers to worship together in the Sanctuary and MS/HS Huddles do not meet in the Lower Level.

Wednesday Evenings

1st and 3rd Wednesdays, September through March | 6:30-8pm

    • ReFuel for High School | Dinner, great discussion and a time to relax.
    • JAM (Jesus and Me) for Middle School | Topic nights, Coke Clubs (small group discussions at local restaurants with a leader), service opportunities and outreach nights.
