Ignite Your Faith

Ignition is a fun, safe and welcoming place where high school students (grades 9-12) are connected to Jesus. At Ignition, students experience God through incredible music and a powerful message, build meaningful friendships, discover ways to stay connected and continue their faith journey throughout high school. Ignition is the perfect next step for students after getting confirmed at PowerLife and for all high school students to grow closer to God! Bring a friend (or five) and we’ll see you on Wednesday night at Ignition!

The fun starts with ice breakers and games with prizes! 

Breakout Sessions (7:45-8:15 pm) 
Students can choose how they want to have fun and connect with friends at church. They can pick from options like active gym games, creative arts, service projects or simply time to just talk and enjoy tasty snacks with friends.

Students gather in the Worship Center for inspiring music, prayer and messages from the Bible that apply directly to what students are experiencing today. 

Small Group (9:00-9:30 pm) 
We end the night with a relaxed and intentional time for peers and their adult group leaders to grow together in faith, wrestle with some of life’s biggest questions, and support and pray for one another through the challenges of high school.
