What is StudentLife?
StudentLife is a middle and high school student ministry at that focuses on raising up future generations that love God, love People, and love Life.
Student Life is for all students, 6th grade through 12th grade. The hope and prayer of Student Life is that our students have the opportunity to encounter the life-changing power of Jesus in everything we do. We are striving to be relevant in our teaching, real in our conversations, and equip students with the knowledge and understanding of God’s grace, mercy and love.
On the first Wednesday of every month, both middle and high school students meet in the StudentLife space (1428 Greenbrier Place, Charlottesville, VA 22901) from 6:30 – 8:00 pm for a time filled with worship, games, give-aways, relevant teaching, and much more. Come out to our First Wednesday service and bring your friends for an awesome evening!
First Wednesdays 2019 Dates
January 9 / February 6 / March 6 / April 3 / May 1 / June 5 / July 10 / August 7 / September 4 / October 2 / November 6 / December 4
Episode – February 22-24
You have a story. Your life tells a story, unique to only you. In the story of your life, there are smaller stories playing themselves out all the time. These stories, though small, define you, shape you, move you, and ultimately write out your story at large. We like to call these stories, Episodes. It’s a story within a story, yet a single episode can change the rest of the story forever. That’s where Episode comes in. It’s a weekend specifically designed to create one amazing, defining episode in the story of students’ lives. Episode is a weekend retreat held each year at Ridgecrest Conference Center, in Ridgecrest, NC for High School and Middle School students. It’s a jam-packed three days that includes engaging worship, dynamic and challenging biblical teaching, exiting games and programming, and quality relationship building opportunities. The goal of Episode is to create moments for students to grow in their walk with Christ, foster Christ-honoring relationships with peers, and return home excited about the mission God has given them. We would love for you to join us this year at Episode. Sign up HERE! Early Bird registration will receive a small discount in ticket price.
