Students

Southwinds Students Exists to Help Students Become Fully-Devoted Followers of Jesus Christ.

On Sunday mornings, we provide three Worship Services designed to connect students to God and others. During the week, we offer a variety of in-home small groups that meet throughout the city, which range from age-graded, gender specific, to co-ed groups. (All Junior High groups are age-graded.) It is in these small groups that our big group gets smaller; and where students are Known, Cared for, and Loved, growing in their relationship with Christ. We also offer seasonal Special Events and Mission Experiences to enhance our ongoing ministry to students.
