“Kinship” based from the word “Kin” means “someone or something of the same or similar kind; generally a family type relationship.” We seek to be a true Kin within our group. One that looks and feels like a family ready to encourage and love each other. As a family grows and learns together, so too does a kin. We create a culture that is inclusive in our purpose and identity as Christ-followers.
Kinship does this through three main avenues: Sunday Worship, Mid-Week House Groups, and Special Events/Camps.
We all arrive to the 9:30 service a little early and hang-out together. Then we all go into the service, sitting together in community. We believe that integrating ourselves in the main church services allows for us to experience and better understand the entirety of the church. This becomes extremely pertinent when students move into adulthood and transition into the adult life within the church, thus equipping students to become lifelong Christ-followers that are prepared for their future in their spiritual walks.
Mid-Week Community House Groups
These groups occur on Wednesday nights, 7-8:45p. These groups are held at houses of local church congregants. Each group is specific towards the student’s grade, and is led by 2-3 highly qualified youth leaders. The night consists of a time to hang out and play games, while also engaging in a relevant bible study and discussion. If you have any questions, or want to know more about student community groups, please contact Trey, Pastor of Students.
These events occur generally monthly, and are aimed at creating opportunities for students to have fun, embark on adventure, and grow in a healthy community. We also have winter and summer camps. Our summer camp this year will be with Christ in Youth (CIY), which is held in Durango, CO.
