Ocean View Students
Middle School Sundays at 9:30 am
High School Sundays at 11:00 am
Welcome to Ocean View Students!
At Ocean View Students (6th-12th grade), we believe that every environment should be exciting, safe, and relevant in helping your family to follow Jesus. Our environments for students are age-intentional with worship, small groups, and applicable teaching from the Bible.
It’s our desire that what happens on the weekend would act as the beginning of a spiritual conversation that will continue throughout the week in your family.
At the beginning of every Sunday morning student series, parents are given a snapshot, a Parent Cue, of what we discuss so you can continue the conversation throughout the week using everyday experiences to help your family grow in your relationship with Jesus.
Our middle school small groups exist to help middle schoolers experience three things:
wonder for who God is
discovery of who He created them to be
passion for loving others
Everything we offer is designed to help middle schoolers begin to take ownership of their faith through these three basic truths:
I will love God because He will never stop loving me.
I will follow Jesus because He knows me better than I know myself.
I will live out God’s story so others can know who Jesus is.
Our middle school environment happens on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am. Students will experience a combination of messy games, powerful worship, inspiring leaders, engaging conversations, and relevant teaching. Student Check-ins begins 15 minutes before our services.
So if we haven’t met yet, come find a volunteer and introduce yourself!
We believe passionately in helping our high school students discover their own personal ministries in the broader life of the church, and so for that reason you will see students serving all over the place on Sunday mornings.
Students just like you who do everything from greeting to running cameras to planning special events, working in our kids ministries, and more!
We are always looking for more willing hands to help us make OV great!
Sunday afternoons are our high school small group night. Groups exist to help fuel three relationships:
and with Others
Our goal is to help fuel these relationships through five filters:
We open the doors at the Student Center on the Student Center on Sundays at 11:00 am. Our high school ministry meets for a combination of music, food, teaching, and hang outs with a dedicated group of adult leaders and peers!
Did you know that we send an email every week called “The Parent Cue?”
This is a way not only to keep you informed about news, upcoming announcements, and events, but also to partner with you, the parent, on what we are teaching your student and how you can reinforce it at home.
On average, churches get about one hour a week to speak into the life of a teenager. When you subtract trips, holidays, and sports, at best that equals forty hours a year.
We feel our influence is profoundly more effective when we partner with parents, providing you with tangible ways to engage your teenagers at home.
To sign up for The Parent Cue, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
