Our student ministry is run out of our Columbia campus so we combine our activities and schedule there led by our student pastor, Todd Loyd. You can find our gathering schedule below.
The Orca holding his trident, the proud and free mascot of the teens at Maury Hills stands for . . . well, nothing. However, the Maury Hills Student Ministry is all about building community within the larger body of the church & making disciples of Christ! We’re trying to help students learn what it means to love God & love people and then put that love into action. We’re made up of both Jr. High (5th-8th) and Sr. High (9th-12th) students. We highly encourage parental involvement.
One major point of emphasis of the program is to give our teens experiences they will never forget, so you never know what to expect when a teen attends a class or event at Maury Hills.
Students will understand what they believe and why they believe it.
Students will learn and put into practice disciplines that will aid them the rest of their lives.
Students will learn how to set boundaries in the area of
Students will learn to wisely choose friends who will help them in their walk of faith.
Students will learn to use godly wisdom rather than emotions in their decision making.
Students will learn that all authority is established by
God and their view of earthly
authority reflects their acceptance of God's
Students will learn to place others' needs above their own.
We meet on Sunday and Wednesday nights. Our students come from pretty much every school in the county so you are likely to know someone if not several Orcas. We can't wait to meet you and your family.
Sundays: 5:30 pm
Wednesdays: 6:30 pm
