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.

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.

How do I know what my student is learning about at Greenhouse?
We have created a Student Catalog to provide you with information on what your student is learning during Greenhouse services, and to provide extra resources for you & your student.
What is Discipleship Hour?
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. Discipleship hour is broken down into 3 neighborhoods:
1. Checkpoint: After service, Checkpoint is an opportunity for students to meet with a leader one-on-one a few times throughout the year. Leaders check in on where students are at in their lives, faith, and spiritual journey. Checkpoint is required for all students.
2. Table Fellowship: After service, this optional area is for our students who really have a desire to dive deeper into the message and grow in their relationship with Christ and other students. We will have a middle school area & a high school area. Each section will have an adult moderator on the mic guiding the conversation. Students can sit with whomever they want; we will not separate them by grade or gender.
3. Hub Connection: After service, this optional area is for students who don’t have a checkpoint scheduled & aren’t quite ready to dive deeper. We will have leaders in this area at specific games while connecting with students by asking questions and encouraging students to talk with them in a more comfortable setting. Our goal here is to take the pressure off students who just aren’t ready to share in smaller settings like table fellowship, allowing us to meet them where they are at.
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.
