We Love Our Students!

Pulse is our student youth group –  a place where students meet Jesus, know Jesus and share Jesus!

The group is called “Pulse” for a reason. We try to do so much on our own, without Jesus, and we end up lonely. What we want is a heart that beats in rhythm with Him. If Jesus leads…we follow.

Pulse Jr.

Pulse Junior is youth group for 5th – 8th graders. On Sundays at 11:00 am, we meet in the Pulse Student Ministry room. We also meet on Sunday nights, at the church,  6-8 pm!

Our main focus is God, but we also have lots of fun! Part of group night is small group time, where students dive into scripture and talk about topics such as discovering who God designed them to be, and issues they’re facing every day, such as lying or gossip. There is music, food, games and lots of fun!

Sign up for camp now! It’s first come, first served and spots are filling up fast.

James 4:8 tells us if we draw near to God, he will draw near to us. Many times we struggle to follow God alone, but here in our Pulse community, we try to push one another toward the heart of God.
