Nexus is a place you and I connect with Jesus together.


We strive to follow Jesus together through studying Scripture, praying and loving our neighbors, which helps us to dig our roots deep in Jesus and connect with one another.

Nexus Student Ministries is home to our middle and high school students, and we strive to make that home a welcoming place for all. We seek to live out our vision to Follow, Connect, Make - and we do that through a focus on biblical teaching, disciple-making small groups, and outreach opportunities. Stop by the Student Center for Sunday School, Wednesday Night Youth Group, or during office hours just to say hello. Wed would also love to see you at one of our regularly scheduled hangouts or annual retreats.

Sunday School | 9:00 - 10:15 am

All Nexus students (middle and high school) are invited to the Student Center during the 9:00 am service. Join us for worship, music and a variety of elective opportunities to study God’s Word. After, students are encouraged to attend the 10:45 am church worship service with their families. High school juniors and seniors are encouraged to get involved in a church ministry; contact Pastor Ron to get started.

Wednesday Night Youth Group

Hang out with friends: 6:00 - 7:00 pm
7:00 - 8:45 pm (during school year) | 7:30 - 9:00 pm (summer)

Join us in the Student Center for a time of teaching and worship before splitting up into small groups for the study of God’s Word. This is a time to have fun, play games, build community, worship, and learn what God has to say from the Bible.
