ENGLISH MINISTRY // LIFE STAGE GROUPS

IT’S ALL ABOUT COMMUNITY

We are so excited to have you join our one of our Life Stage groups where we learn, we laugh, we pray, we eat together - all the time! Although split into different life stages, you are welcome to join any community you feel most at home with. Our groups meet at different times throughout the month so be sure to check in with each Life Stage Leader for the times and locations!

HIGH SCHOOL

 

Defending the Faith

Age Group: 11th - 12th Grade

Life Stage Leader: Andrew Nguyen

Focus: Teaching students to reason consistently as Christians, according to a well-informed Christian worldview. This is done on two levels: theological and philosophical. On the theological level, students will be catechized in the fundamentals of the faith; on the philosophical level students will be taught to 1.) sanctify Christ as Lord in their hearts, 2.) always be ready to give a defense for the hope that is in them, and 3.) to make their defense with gentleness and respect (cf. 1 Peter 3:15). In short, doctrinal catechesis and apologetics.

Articulating the Faith

Age Group: 9th - 10th Grade

Life Stage Leader: Anthony Tang

Focus: Teaching students to identify important themes in the Bible, as well as teaching them to recognize how God uses his people, in his place, under his rule to bring about his plan of redemption through the work of Christ. Our desire is that students are able to see Christ in all of Scripture through the use of basic biblical-theological principles.

Our goal is to create a group that is more connected and open to each other. We envision everyone growing with each other in and out of church. Like any good family, we want to grow closer to each other so that we can grow even closer to God. We desire openness with one another in order to grow closer with one another and with God. We want to motivate each other to pursue God's word and live a godly life. 


 

MIDDLE SCHOOL

 

Learning the Faith

Age Group: 6th - 8th Grade

Life Stage Leaders: Andrew Nguyen and Anthony Tang

Focus: Teaching students at a young age how to read and understand the Bible using a method of Biblical catechesis -- asking questions, based on a biblical text, probing to gauge understanding and retention. In particular, we are looking for our students to see the gospel in all of Scripture. This class is basically learning to read and interact with Scripture on a very basic level.
