You Belong Here.

Our vision for Waypoint Students is to make a way for students and families to BELONG to a community of faith that will help them BELIEVE in Jesus Christ as their Savior and go BEYOND themselves to live life with purpose through the Gospel. Our students meet on Wednesday nights at The Realm throughout the school year for a Midweek gathering at 6:30 PM. Our Life Groups are designed to give students a voice and a community to pursue life with Christ together.

Our Midweek gatherings are a chance for students to embrace a relevant church environment that speaks to them with teaching, community, and worship. We want students to engage with their friends and faith as they learn what it means to follow Jesus. Midweek is for both middle and high school students on Wednesday nights from 6:30–8:00 PM at the Realm during the regular school year. Doors open at 6:15 PM.

Life Groups

Our Life Groups are designed to give students a voice and a community to pursue life with Christ together. Led by caring adult mentors, these Life Groups discuss a variety of life topics related to becoming more mature disciples of Jesus Christ. In a Life Group, you can be known, encouraged, prayed for, discipled, and held accountable. It’s a place where friendships are strengthened and memories are created.

Middle School Life Groups: Sundays at 9:00–10:15 AM at the Realm. (separated by gender and grade)

High School Life Groups: Sundays at 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM in homes. (They will no longer meet in Kin Coffee.)

Frequently Asked Questions

We have the best student team that is ready and excited to welcome your student into the ministry. Students do not need to register for a Life Group or MidWeek service. We desire that your student feels like they BELONG every time they walk into The Realm (our student building). We want to connect with your student! If you are ready to lean in and take the next step to get them involved with our ministry, use the Questions form at the bottom of this page and we will be sure to connect them to our ministry!

We work hard to create an environment specifically designed for middle and high school students. This includes our Midweek services that involve high-energy worship, practical teaching, and community moments. We also hold significant life-changing events such as mission trips, The WKND, Fall Flannel Formal, and Winter Wonderland. Every event and service is designed and planned to engage our current culture in a Gospel-centered way.

At this moment, we have an amazing group of mentors who lead our student ministry here at Waypoint Church. If you are interested in serving with our student ministry, please email Jenny Hoffeditz. We want you to serve where the Lord can use you in a mighty way, and we would love to find the perfect fit for you in Waypoint Students!

We’d love to meet you! Midweek is a great place to see what we’re all about.

It’s easy! If you’re a middle school student, groups are made up of students with the same grade and gender. When you arrive on Sunday morning, you’ll be paired with a group accordingly. If you’re in high school, you’ll be with a group of students in the same grade. Just let a greeter know it’s your first time and we’ll get you connected!
