What are SQUADS?
For 6–12th grade students
Wednesdays | Year-round
6:30–8 p.m. | Theater
Youth Services on Wednesday nights typically include worship, a message, and squads.
Squads are small groups of students who get together following the service to dig deeper into the message.
Squads are made up of mixed sexes and ages. They're split into two age groups: middle school (6-8th) and high school (9-12th). Each squad has one adult female and one adult male leader. On evenings when the message is more sensitive, squads are also split by gender.
On special Wednesdays, these same squads participate in fun competitions and team building activities.
Students are placed in squads based on the region they live in so it's easier for parents to get their students to Squad Sundays.
For 6th–12th grade students
4th Sunday of the Month
6–8 p.m. | Host homes around the Twin Cities
Life happens outside of Wednesday nights, and the more opportunities our students have to connect with each other and with God, the more prepared they'll be to walk out their relationship with God every day. Squad Sundays allow students to continue to build relationships in a safe, neutral place with their adult leaders and others in their squad. Squad Sundays involve hanging out, discussion, and prayer.
The same squads that meet on Wednesday meet on Sundays. Squad Sundays are open to all students, even if they do not attend on Wednesdays. Students are placed in squads based on the region they live in so it's easier for parents to get their students to Squad Sundays.
