Student Groups

Below are practical, engaging, regularly-scheduled activities to help us live out our God-given vision.

Sunday Mornings

Grades 6-8 Sunday Morning Live (SML)

 

Wornall Campus SML meets every Sunday from 9:30 – 10:30 AM in the Middle School Room at the Wornall Student Center (95th and Wornall Road).  Also, count on a relaxed atmosphere, donuts, The question of the day, lots of interactive discussion, and a time of applicable teaching geared directly toward 6th, 7th and 8th grade students.

 

Quivira Campus SML meets every Sunday morning at 10:45 AM upstairs in Room 200. Come in, grab a donut, and a seat at one of our grade and gender specific tables. We start with announcements, a game, and worship. After that, we enter into a time of teaching and discussion.

Sunday Mornings

Grades 9-12

 

Wornall Campus SML: This is our corporate worship gathering on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30 AM in the high school room at the Student Center. At SML, our students engage in a thought-provoking Bible study. This semester we are diving into the book of Philippians and discussing how to become mature followers of Christ.

 

Sunday Mornings at the Quivira Campus: This time is intended to be a GATHERING of our Home Churches and a LAUNCHING of our students into daily ministry as Kingdom-workers. This is during the 3rd Service from 10:45 AM to Noon each Sunday. A typical morning consists of fellowship, worship through music, a message, and “Missions Moments” (student testimonies about how the Lord is working on hearts of people in their lives).

 

Quivira Campus Pursue Team is our student leadership team that will meet twice a month from 9:15-10:15 AM on Sundays in the prayer room. On the other weeks we will be participating in the second service at church. Any high school student with a desire to pursue Christ and take the next step in spiritual growth is encouraged to commit. Taken from 1 Timothy 6:11… A true leader must first and foremost Pursue Jesus Christ.

Wednesday Nights

Grades 6, 7, and 8

 

Quivira Campus Fusion: From 6:00 – 7:30 PM upstairs in Room 200. At Fusion we try to bring everyone together and show that we are the body of Christ and our identity is found in Christ and Christ alone. We typically start off with a game or two, hear a brief message, and then split into small groups for discussion and prayer.

 

Wornall Campus Life Groups:  From 6:30 – 8:30 PM in the Middle School Room at the Wornall Student Center. Each week at Life Groups students gather in age and gender specific groups with incredible volunteer leaders whose desire is to lead, equip, and nurture spiritual growth for every student they encounter. Life Groups are designed to be comfortable, but bold enough to proclaim the TRUTH of Scripture.

Wednesday Nights

Grades 9-12

 

Quivira Campus Home Churches: These are our Wednesday night gatherings (formally known as Life Groups) in which we more intentionally seek to show hospitality and share Christ with those around us. These are age specific, meet in homes, and are intended to be the place of invitation for friends, classmates, and neighbors to come experience what community in Jesus is all about. A typical Wednesday night includes fellowship, an intentional community-building game/question, and a short teaching over Jesus and His message through the gospels.

 

Wornall Campus Life Groups: Gender specific small groups for 9th-12th graders that meet at 6:30 PM at the Wornall Student Center. Life Groups provide an opportunity for students to worship God and grow as a community of believers who desire to live out the good news of Jesus.

Weekly Discipleship Groups

These weekly or bi-weekly small groups are intended to be a place of deeper discipleship through accountability, prayer, and study of God’s Word.  Groups will meet at various times throughout the week and are age and gender specific. Adult volunteers will lead groups of 3-7 students.

Serving Groups

 

Local Serve Nights

The Wornall High School ministry invests in congregational care and neighborhood outreach. These ministries provide the means for our students to partner with God’s redemptive work in the city.

 

Governor’s Court

High school students serve on Tuesdays in three ways:
• By being a homework buddy for the kids.
• By bringing snacks for the kids.
• By being an ESL (English as a Second Language) Tutor for the Moms.

 

Mission Southside
We have been connected to Mission Southside the past several summers and during “Turkey Bowls” at Thanksgiving. They have invited us to adopt one of their apartment complexes in West Olathe. We are partnering with other churches as a student ministry to Be The Church in our community! During the summer, we gather every Friday at the Q Youth House to carpool to these apartments. There we will prayer walk, meet the residents, and provide fun activities for kids and parents.

 

Freedom Fire

1st Friday of the month.

This ministry primarily serves youth and families from the federal housing developments just east of downtown Kansas City. One Friday a month we go to the inner-city to hang out with children at Guinotte Manor. We encourage families and students to come be a part of the ministry, and there are always plenty of adults to supervise. While we are there we play games, paint faces, lead worship, and then serve a dinner prepared by our families. Afterward we head to McDonald’s for a recap and hear testimonies from our kids about how they were impacted.

This is a great opportunity for us to serve together as a middle school ministry.
