Student Ministry

Welcome to The Kirk student ministry! We’re proud to provide youth and student ministries to the next generation of church leaders.

WHO WE ARE

Student Ministry at The Kirk is centered on three words: Grace. Depth. Community. 

Grace. We don’t need more religion, we need more grace. Grace helps us be real with God and others. Grace allows us to grow. Here at The Kirk we want to be people filled with grace, who can grow together towards Jesus. 

Depth. We all face difficult questions, and the last thing we want is easy answers. Surface level answers only make matters worse. The Bible offers deep truths, if we’re willing to pursue them. We want to pursue your questions together, not just to find the right answer, but to learn more about God in the process. 

Community. Faith, grace and depth are not possible without community. The Bible’s prescription for community is different than our culture’s. It involves worship, authenticity and service. Here at KirkStudents we want to cultivate that kind of authentic community. You can be yourself here, and we’ll love you for it. 

WHAT WE DO

Sunday nights are THE PLACE TO BE. This is where it all happens! MSM (Middle School Ministry) and HSM (High School Ministry) both meet from 5:00-6:30 p.m., downstairs in the basement at our Kirk of the Hills campus. We begin in worship together, and then MSM heads upstairs for games, a sermon and small groups. HSM stays downstairs for a sermon, more worship and small groups.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe it is important for students to be part of the life of the church on Sundays. Students need to see the church as a part of their community, where they can worship and serve. Therefore, we encourage students to serve somewhere in the church and regularly attend a worship service. For some families, that means coming to church for two hours, and for some that means serving every other week. If you’re looking to get plugged in for the first time, come meet us in The Gathering. 

Worship services are 9:00 a.m. (Traditional) and 10:30 a.m. (Contemporary) at the Kirk of the Hills campus. Kirk Crossing also has services at 9:00 & 10:30 a.m., and both services are Contemporary. 


KIRKSTUDENTS COFFEE MINISTRY

The Gathering is our coffee ministry run exclusively by KirkStudents! We are open on Sunday mornings from 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. This is a place for students to connect with one another and with the rest of our congregation. All proceeds go toward missions and student scholarships. If you’d like to volunteer or meet the student staff on a Sunday morning, meet us here! 

At our Kirk Crossing campus, we also feature a full-service Coffee Bar that our KirkStudents assist with on Sunday mornings.
