Student Ministry 2018-01-05T22:01:18+00:00

At The Orchard we think students are just THE BEST, and so very important to the family of God! We want to partner with you and your student to bring joy, fun, meaning, and a strong sense of identity in Christ to these vital years.

We use the Orange philosophy as a basis for our ministries: RED (The Heart of the Family) + YELLOW (The light of the church) = ORANGE – a dynamic combination! We are better together.

We offer weekly programs for middle and high school students as follows:

MIDDLE SCHOOL (6th-8th grade)

Ascent  – Sunday mornings during the 2nd service. Gatherings are held in the student ministry room from 10:15-11:00am. This is an opportunity for students to study the Bible in a relaxed environment.

Alive! – Thursdays from 7-8:30pm @ The Orchard. This high energy gathering includes games, snacks, worship, relevant teaching and growth groups. Students and parents can follow Alive! on Instagram for weekly teasers and announcements @aliveattheorchard.


Fusion – Wednesdays from 7-9pm @ The Orchard. High schoolers are encouraged to bring their friends to enjoy an evening of games, food, worship, teaching and growth groups. Follow Fusion on Instagram @fusionattheorchard.

Power Lunch – Fridays during RFHS lunch period @ The Orchard. A free lunch is offered to all high schoolers, as well as faith-based discussions. This ministry is in partnership with Youth For Christ. Follow us on Instagram to find out what we’ll be serving up @friday_power_lunch.
