If you are a middle school, or high school student looking for a place to connect with your peers, grow in your faith and have a lot of fun at the same time, then you're in the right place. Each of our environments (Refuge for middle school and Mosaic for high school,) are unique and have been created with you in mind.
In each of our ministries, you'll find: adult volunteers who love God and young people, relevant Bible teaching, and community groups where you can ask honest questions and find real answers - and a lot of fun. Keep reading below to explore all that is happening here in the Christ Community Student Ministry.
