 What is Elevate Student Ministries all about?

 Our Vision: At Elevate our students will have a safe place to 
connect with God and  with peers, grow in their relationship with Him, and reach the lost around them.
Our Verse:  Romans 12:2 – “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing, and perfect will.”
Fall 2020 Information:
It has been quite a year! And it seems like forever since we have been able to be together as a youth group. After much careful consideration and planning, we are bringing Elevate back on September 16th. Things will look a lot different this year!

1. We will be doing as much programming as possible outside. This allows for fresh air and relaxed mask and distancing requirements. As long as the weather holds, we will be having the meal, games, worship, and small group outside, then inviting the middle school and high school separately into the sanctuary for teaching time.

2. We are not able to serve home-prepared food this year due to regulations. Our plan is to bring in prepared food (pizza, subs, tacos), but this is dependent on our funding. Your donation of $100 per student for the year is vital to making the meals possible. We would ask every parent who is able to donate toward the meal fund. If you are unable to donate, we still want your student to come!

3. When we are indoors, we will be requiring students to wear face coverings and maintain a 6-foot social distance. This is the regulation as determined by the state, and we are required to follow it.

4. We will be doing everything we can help keep your students safe and healthy. It is vitally important that EVERY STUDENT fill out a registration form and waiver this year. This is for both new and returning students.
Students will not be able to attend without a current waiver. Please fill this out ASAP! Form can be found here: Elevate Registration & Waiver
