Welcome to Student Ministries

Our mission:  Helping Students Find Their Way Back to God

All the teaching at South Harbor is designed to be meaningful and impact students where they are, and help them take a step closer to God. We want each student to know and experience God’s love and grace while cultivating authentic relationships with other students and leaders. If you are someone who doesn’t know Jesus or you have known Him their whole life, our teaching engages students to figure out what it means to grow as a person, as part of a community, and in their spiritual lives. Our prayer is that you and your children will grow in your passion for God and live it out in every area of your lives.

Concerned that you “won’t fit in”?  Don’t be! We currently have seven different school systems (as well as many who are homeschooled) represented in our youth group; in other words, we have made it a priority to do away with cliques.  We think Jesus would want it that way.

About our Sunday night format… Matthew 22:37-40 and Matthew 28:19 are the words of Jesus which are commonly called the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.  They are the two most important statements which give insight into how disciples of Jesus live, and what our mission should be.  From them, three dominant themes of a community of disciples emerge:

                                            UP – worship together  | IN – gaining community as a group | OUT – serving our community
