Join us for Unite at all campuses on Sundays from 5:30-8:00 pm!

Unite is our weekly Sunday night ministry at Forest Park for students grades 7-12. Unite is loaded with worship, friends, LifeGroups and a message geared toward students and their everyday lives. Our goal is to create an experience where students can meet Jesus and grow in their relationship with Him.



Students Serving



Grow in your faith through service!

We believe students are not only the leaders of tomorrow, but the leaders of today. Serving within the church is one of the best ways for students to make their faith their own. Through Student Impact, students can be the church and develop their leadership skills while serving in Kid City or on the First Impressions Team.



Trek and Journey



Dive deeper into God's Word on Wednesdays from 6-8:00 pm!

Trek and Journey are for students in grades 7-12 who want to memorize Scripture, study the Bible and develop the discipline of having a daily quiet time with God.
