Apex Student Ministry strives to help equip students for a lifelong walk with Christ. Paul tells us to press on toward the goal (Philippians 3:14). We believe that it is essential to equip students to grow in their relationship with Christ, growing even closer to Him as they walk through this life. The Apex is the highest point of a mountain that every climber strives to reach. Similarly, in our walk with Christ, we should be moving upward, striving to reach the prize that we have been heavenly called toward.
Stuff We Do Every week:
Foothold – Wednesday 6:45-8:30
Every climber must have a good foothold in order to climb higher and avoid falling. Foothold is a time of giving our students the essentials they will need to continue to climb higher long after they leave the youth group. Foothold is our large group time including 7th – 12th graders that meets in the Peek. Basketball, dodgeball, video games, ping pong and other activities take place before and after Foothold. During Foothold we spend time in worship and in Bible Study. We encourage you to bring your friends and join us.
Base Camp Sunday 9:45-10-45
Climbers need to make sure they have all the equipment they need to succeed and a group of climbers they can work with to reach their common goal. Basecamp is designed to help students bond with other believers with whom they can connect and hang out. During Basecamp students will also study God’s Word to discover the basics of our faith that will help them prepare for the long climb ahead. We meet in the Peek each Sunday.
Stuff We Do Yearly:
Enchanted Rock Trip
Spring break 2016 (March 16-19) will be a great one! Climb the ancient dome for amazing Hill Country views! The massive pink granite dome rising above Central Texas has drawn people for thousands of years. But there’s more at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area than just the dome. The scenery, rock formations and legends are magical, too!
We will be climbing, spelunking, and bouldering at enchanted rock. We will stay at Highland Lakes Encampment where we will have: Baseball Field, Softball Field, Soccer Field, Sand Volleyball Court, Basketball Courts, Disc/Frisbee Golf, Ga Ga Ball, Ping Pong Tables, Horseshoes, Tennis Court, Hiking Trail, Fishing – license required, catch and release (bring own equipment & bait), Campfire!
Each summer we get away for a week to spend time with God and our whole group. Camp is one of the most important events we go to each year. It helps the group to accelerate their friendships with each other and God. The camp we attend varies from year to year.
2016 - Student Life Camp at Orange Beach.
We believe our students are called to serve now and not just when they are older. Putting your faith into action is important. Mission trips allow us to put our faith into action and is a high priority in the student ministry. Our mission trip varies from year to year, but usually involves backyard Bible clubs and light construction. We have traveled to Galveston, Victoria, Mexico, Alabama, Florida and other locations. Every other year high school students are provided the opportunity to participate in an international mission trip. The past five international mission trips have taken us to the country of Ecuador. This trip has had lifelong impacts on our students.
