Students

Our student ministry is designed to help equip student families to impact the world around them whether at school, home, work or anywhere else.

  • Sunday School

    Sunday School for Student Ministries meets at 9:00 a.m in the Student Center in the CORE. During Sunday School we meet together as a large group and break into small groups by grade and gender. Students are grouped with two adult leaders in classes where each student is known by name and group members progress in their journey with Christ by walking life together inside and outside the walls of Germantown Baptist Church.

  • COLLISION Wednesday Evening Worship

    Our Wednesday evening worship service for students in grades 6-12 meets at 6:00 p.m. in the CORE. An encounter between objects resulting in an exchange or transformation…that's a collision. Each Wednesday night students will experience a COLLISION with the very One who created them and loves them enough to lay down His own life for them…Jesus Christ. Through worship songs, testimonies, games and a relevant message, students will have a COLLISION with God - encouraging and challenging them to be transformed for His glory.

  • Under Authority Student Choir

    Under Authority (UA) is a Worship Arts student choir ministry that teaches students in Grades 6-12 what it means to live a life as a worshiper of God. Under Authority, which meets each Sunday night at 5 pm in the CORE during the fall and spring semesters, sings a variety of music styles but leans toward the current worship music of today. UA leads worship for the church family on select Sunday mornings and evenings during fall and spring, sings off campus each semester at other churches, community events, or retirement/nursing homes and takes a choir tour/mission trip during the spring semester each year.
