\\\\\\\\\\  FIRST TIME HERE?  //////////


Summit Students is the high school ministry of First Free Church. We meet together on Sunday mornings for a large group service, smaller break out classes, and time to hang out. Sunday evenings include dinner, a large group service, and small group discussion time. We have other awesome events, too, so you'll definitely want to check out the calendar to see what else is going on.


Many people give their lives and life savings just to experience a few moments at the summit of Mount Everest. But what is the highest point of your life? What are you living for, dreaming of, and giving your all to be?


We believe that the summit of our lives is God's will for our lives, and Jesus made that summit possible. That's what Summit Students is all about: high school students on a trek with God.


The climb to Everest's peak is grueling and the dangers are life-threatening; it's a journey no one would dare attempt alone. That's why we've formed Expedition Teams (small groups) that meet every Sunday night as part of our time together. These teams help us navigate the dangers and difficulties we face as we follow after Jesus.


If you're not part of an Expedition Team yet, don't worry. We'll get you hooked up. Come join us for a $3 dinner beginning at 6 p.m. At 6:30 p.m. we begin our service, and everything wraps up around 8:30 p.m.

Mount Everest is the highest place on earth. Anyone who wants to reach Everest's peak has to be prepared for the challenging climb, and they wouldn't be able to do it alone. A group of people (called an expedition team) would meet several weeks before the climb and begin training at base camp. They'd study routes, train physically, and build team unity.


That's what we do on Sunday mornings. We come together to equip ourselves for our summit – God's plan for our lives. Students get to pick from one of our 7-week long classes where they'll talk through different challenges of being a disciple of Jesus Christ and of living in His will.


If you'd like to know more about BaseCamp, contact Student Ministries at 636.779.2142 or email Noah Glyshaw at  noah@glyshaw.com.


If you're new around here, you'll find out pretty quick that we've got a bunch of awesome stuff going on like our Elevate summer camp, Hoe Down, Clash N' Bowl, Girls' Formal, and Spring Break Missions Trip, to name a few things. You'll definitely want to check the calendar to see what's coming up next.
