Welcome to the student ministry here at Alexander. We are a company of students founded purely on the unmerited grace of God. Not only are we founded on the grace of God, but we are a community who looks forward to our full and final experience of the grace of God in Jesus Christ when He returns (1 Peter 1:13). We exist to cultivate a community of students (6th-12th grades) that is focused on exalting Christ in the world through faithfulness to His Word.
We will update this page as we receive more info regarding COVID-19. In student ministry, we are going to try to follow the lead of the church as a whole in regards to cancellations and how to move forward during this time.
SMALL GROUPS (SUNDAY MORNINGS)…
On Sunday mornings at 11:30am (directly after the church’s main Sunday morning worship service), our students meet in small groups. These small groups are broken up into groups of girls and boys, so that the boys are with boys and girls are with girls. Currently, the girls meet as a single group consisting of girls who are 6th-12th grades, as do the boys with boys.
Each week on Sunday morning, the students are given a printed-out reading plan that walks them through a book of the Bible. During the week, the students are expected and encouraged to work through the reading plan for that week. This enables them to be well-equipped for discussion on Sunday morning. On Sunday morning, we meet with our respective small groups to discuss what the Lord has been teaching us through what we have read in the reading plan for that week. It is a massively encouraging time to watch 6th-12th graders discuss and wrestle with what God is saying through His Word!
We are currently, however, in a short break from our reading plans. We are currently discussing the Sunday morning sermons in our small groups.
CORPORATE GATHERING OF STUDENTS (WEDNESDAY NIGHTS)…
On Wednesday night, the students meet for our weekly Student Ministry service at 6:30pm. This is when we get to hang out, play some games, and hear a message from the Word of God based on the Bible book we are walking through.
Our new series for Wednesday night is titled, “Believing the Son from the Father” and it is an expository journey through the Gospel of John.
In ABC Student Ministry, we are passionate about letting the Word do the work. In other words, we are passionately devoted to expository preaching (just as our lead pastor is!). We believe that if our teachers are faithful to explain God’s intended meaning for the Bible, He will be faithful to work in our hearts to change us for our good and His glory (2 Tim. 3:16-17). We don’t just want students to have a list of to-do’s from the Bible; we want them to be deeply changed as a person by the Bible. As David Mathis said, “The Bible is gloriously for us, but it is not mainly about us. We come most deeply because of Whom we will see, not for what we must do. ‘Become a kind of person,’ counsels Piper, ‘don’t amass a long list.'” That is our goal in student ministry: for God to create kinds of people through His divine Word as it is taught, meditated on, read, prayed, sung, shared, obeyed, and so on. Thus, when students step into our student ministry services, we pray that they will notice one thing: That the Word is central in everything we do.
