Student Ministry at Immanuel

Immanuel Student Ministries is our ministry to Middle School and High School students, 7th-12th grades. We seek to come alongside parents to disciple our students into gospel-maturity. Each Sunday we meet for fellowship, student-led worship, and teaching from God’s Word. Because we believe spiritual life is built up through relationships in the church, we also meet each Wednesday for small group Bible study where we have friends to encourage us and leaders to mentor us. In addition, we offer many opportunities for students to develop relationships, use their spiritual gifts, and grow in their faith through mission trips, retreats, service projects, and group events. In all we do, our desire is to see our students loving Christ, loving the church, and making disciples.

Wednesday Nights, 7pm-9pm

Small groups are a vital component of Student Ministry at Immanuel.
Students meet on the church campus each Wednesday night, 7-9pm. Middle School and High School students are separate, but each group starts with some large-group games and activities before splitting into small groups for the second half of Wednesday Night Youth Group. Small groups are separated by gender and formed based off of high school districts.

Middle School students in the Gym and High School students in the Student Union.

For information about small groups, please contact the Student Ministry Office, 703.813.1951.


Retreats for Middle and High School students provide an opportunity for students and their small group leaders to spend a weekend away having a lot of fun and learning more about God. Retreats provide a good time of community building, strengthening relationships among small group members, and the youth group as a whole.
