FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do middle and high school students meet all together?

Each week, middle school (7th-8th) and high school (9th-12th) students meet in separate locations within the building on Wednesday nights. However, 5-6 times per year for special events, middle school, and high school students will meet together for large group teaching and worship.

Does Alliance Students accommodate students with special needs?

God made us for relationship with Him and others. This includes our youth with special needs. Wednesday nights during Greenhouse youth with special needs are supported by our Greenhouse Friends and Greenhouse Mentors who come alongside them, support them and allow them to experience the environment at their level. To find out if the Greenhouse Special Needs Ministry would be a suitable fit for your child, fill out the contact form.

Does Alliance Students offer Sunday morning programming?

We believe that students are not only the church of tomorrow, but the church of today. One of the best ways for students to take ownership outside of the worship service on Sunday mornings is to serve. We have a variety of opportunities for students to serve on Sundays. 

We understand that there is a considerable gap between the Discovery Land worship experience and the multigenerational worship service that may hinder student engagement. If you or your student is struggling to engage in this service, the following resources will be most helpful for you.

SPIRITUAL BOOTCAMP (SBC)
SBC is an intense discipleship event for students in grades 9-12. The purpose of SBC is to be a Bible learning and God-knowing experience with the intended result of producing an army of biblically and spiritually mature young leaders for His kingdom. This intense and exciting discipleship program meets Sunday mornings throughout the school year and requires two to three hours of work each week.

SBC is open for registration prior to the beginning of each semester. If you would like to receive updates as to when registration opens as well as other important updates about our ministry, sign up to receive our ministry newsletter.

YOUVERSION BIBLE APP
The Bible App allows you to follow along with the pastor’s message and even take notes on a specific passage of scripture and even continue reading scripture through bible reading plans throughout the week.

SERVE AS PART OF THE CHURCH
One of the best ways for a student to engage in the worship service on Sunday morning is to serve.

For a student, what does typical Wednesday night at Greenhouse look like?

6:30 PM: Doors open for free time

  • New students can get signed up at the "New Here" table at both entrances.
  • Middle schoolers (7th-8th) enter through the West Entrance.
  • High schoolers (9th-12th) enter through the East Entrance.

7:00 PM: Session begins (includes worship and a message)

7:45 PM: Students meet for grade connect time

8:00 PM: Students meet in small groups

8:30 PM: Students are dismissed

What are small groups?

Every student needs corporate worship and biblical teaching, but more importantly, every student needs a place where they are seen, heard, and loved as they grow in their faith journey. Small groups are divided by grade and gender and will give students an opportunity to live out their faith in community with one another.

What is Checkpoint?

Checkpoint is an opportunity for students to meet with their small group leaders one-on-one. Leaders check in on where students are at in their lives, faith, and spiritual journey. This happens a few times throughout the year and is scheduled by their small group leader. These are during the first 30 minutes of the Greenhouse night, 6:30-7:00 PM.

Who is Greenhouse for?

At Greenhouse, all middle school and high schoolers hear this message: “You belong.” We believe students belong in these three different spaces: They belong here at Greenhouse, in community, and in the family of Jesus. Greenhouse is for the athlete, musician, intellectual, introvert, extrovert, the struggling, the hurting, for those close to God and those who don’t even believe in God.

Special Needs

God made us for relationship with Him and others. This includes our youth with special needs. Wednesday nights during Greenhouse youth with special needs are supported by our Greenhouse Friends and Greenhouse Mentors who come alongside them, support them and allow them to experience the environment at their level.
