Encounter Christ’s Love

In our world today, it is essential to provide opportunities for students to deepen their faith, grow in their gifts, and connect with God. Our SG Students program provides Junior and Senior High students (7th-12th grade) with a place to find belonging, have fun, make lasting friendships, and grow in their relationship with God.
We give our students the chance to use their talents and share their beliefs through retreats, mission trips and service opportunities throughout the year. Each week we meet for worship, fun activities and small groups designed to challenge students to own their faith and make a difference.

Wednesday Nights

All students are invited to join us on Wednesdays from 7-8:30p (September-May) and 7-9p (June-August) for powerful, youth-led worship, relevant teaching, and time to hangout with friends.

First Communion & Confirmation

If your student is ready to take their next step of faith, we want to celebrate that with you! Our First Communion & Confirmation program begins Fall 2019. Email Anna Zimmerman at [email protected] for more information.

Get Involved at Church

We encourage our Junior and Senior High students to serve at Shepherd’s Gate by volunteering in our SG Kids program during the 10 or 11:30a service. Whether your student wants to lead worship, run sound, or help our nursery caregivers, we want them to get involved and give back. Contact [email protected] for a full list of serving opportunities.
