One Day is our new student worship service! This is a time for students to gather and follow Jesus through hang time, games, worship, a message from Scripture and small group discussion! Doors open at 6:00.

 

The 3rd Wednesday of each month is Outreach Night from 6:30-8:30! Invite your friends and dress up for these “theme nights.” We’ll have more games, more fellowship and more fun followed by dinner at Chick-Fil-A or The Loop!

Sundays 10:45 AM

Join us every Sunday in the Youth Room from 10:45 AM-11:45 AM. We are walking through the Bible and learning each story through video, art, scripture, and discussion.

 

December's Study: Christmas is a time where we prepare our hearts and minds to celebrate the moment that God became human. The Savior was born in a humble stable to a teenage mom and a simple but honest dad. And they observed Him in wonder. The shepherds looked down at Him, recalling the angel’s message of wonder. The wise men would come to do the same thing. They beheld him. Join us on Sunday mornings as we prepare our hearts and minds for the coming Savior with a 25-day Advent devotional.

Life Groups

Sundays 5:00-6:00 PM

We have life groups specifically geared for our Ortega Youth! Life Groups are the way we make a big church feel small. Groups meet across the area and simply do life together; laughing, playing games, fellowshipping, supporting each other, and growing in all seasons of life. We encourage you to get connected with a life group to build new friendships and grow in your walk with Christ. Click here for a list of Ortega Life Groups.
