CSM Weekly Gatherings - School Year

Fall Programming starts up right after Labor Day each year going through the school year until end of May.  We change up our programming each week throughout the summer but during the school year we are pretty consistent.

What To Expect And When:

Sunday School - 9:15am Sunday Mornings

Every Sunday morning we split our High School and Middle School into two separate classes.  The Middle School will meet in the Spanish room right off the main hallway and the High School will meet outside the building in the modular door #2. 

Sunday Night LIFE - 6pm - 8pm Sunday Nights

Every Sunday night we meet in the Wilson Room/Cafe at church for a night of relaxation and fun.  Based on Acts 1 & 2 where the earlier church was all about 4 things: Fellowship, Breaking of Bread, Prayer, and Apostles Teaching.  We will have lots of fun and fellowship playing board/card/video games together.  We ask that people bring snacks and drinks to share each week. Also we will spend some time praying together and talking about spiritual disciplines to help each person become a better follower of Jesus Christ.

Midweek Refuel - 6:30pm - 8:15pm Wednesday Nights

Every Wednesday evening we meet in the worship center for a time of hanging out, worship, group game, announcements, a relavent message geered toward students, and small group discussion.  We have mixed small groups currently to create a sense of community and unity.  We will separate groups according to age and sex if topics discussed require us to do so.  This is our one Youth worship service each week so don't miss this chance to worship with us!

Discipleship Groups - 6:30pm - 8pm Thursday Nights

Every Thursday night we split our guys and girls up into two groups we call discipleship groups.  the intention of these groups is to create community, live life together, and disciple students on a deeper level.  Girls meet at Andrea's House and Guys meet in the Modular door #2 and then we will always go someplace so bring a little money for a snack or a drink together!

CSM High School Ministries 

Countryside Student Ministries involves students from both Middle School and High School.  We value being all together but sometimes it's just fun to get together with people who are the same age.  That's why we have separate High School Events from Middle School Events from time to time.  

Don't get me wrong we love being all together but we purposefully separate Sunday School by High School/Middle School groups.  We believe that High Schoolers are on a different level then Middle Schoolers so we want them to be together connecting with like minded students and passionate adults to help them walk this life together. High school students naturally want to connect with Jesus on a deeper level so we try to create those environments weekly.  We also want to teach our High School students to pour into the younger generations as well.

High School Sunday School meets weekly in the Modular at CNaz on Sunday Mornings at 9:15am!  Great time of connecting to God's word and each other. 

Small groups are combined starting up in September.  We will separate when the topic deems worthy to but for the most part we want to build community so that's why our small group times are mixed gendered, mixed ages, so we can learn from one another.

We also do High School Only Events every so often!  Check the Student Events Page to see if any are coming up?

CSM Middle School Ministries

Don't get me wrong we love being all together but we purposefully separate things like Small Group time, and Sunday School by High School/Middle School groups.  We believe that Middle Schoolers are on a different level then High Schoolers.  We want them to be together connecting with like minded students and passionate adults to help them walk this life together. Middle school students naturally want to connect with Jesus on a fun level so we try to create those environments weekly.

Middle School Sunday School meets weekly in the Spanish Room off of the main hallway at CNaz on Sunday Mornings at 9:15am!  Great time of connecting to God's word and each other.
