Encounter | Grades 10-12


About Encounter

Encounter exists to help grade 10-12 students know Jesus Christ personally and carry on His ministry as they navigate the last years of high school, partnering with parents in equipping them in faith for graduation and beyond. Our aim is that they ground their identity in Christ, gain perspective in how they fit into God’s plan, and embrace the call to obediently follow Him.

Weekends at Encounter

Saturday Zone Saturdays, 5pm-6:15pm (New for Grades 10-12!)

Grades 6-12 all meet together on Saturdays at 5pm in YC1 to learn about God,
talk through life experiences, and see how Jesus invites us to follow Him every day.

@ the 10 Sundays, 10am-11:15am

Join us at 10am in YC2 on Sundays to grow and know God more. It’s a time of hanging out, singing, and learning from the Bible. This is a great time to meet and engage with other students and leaders, and be equipped and empowered as you follow Jesus.
(or learn about what that means if you don’t know Him yet)
