Definitions Of OUr Ministry

Middle Schoolers (MS)
Students in 6th-8th grade during the current school year
Echo: Ascent MS
ECHO: Ascent MS will meet on Sunday mornings during the 9:00am and 10:30am experiences. Students will usually sit with their families during musical worship and be dismissed to The Attic from the stage. There will be some special Sundays this doesn’t apply, but normal procedure will be to meet in the auditorium, engage in musical worship, then upon dismissal, head to The Attic for ECHO: Ascent programming.
Echo: Ascent
ECHO: Ascent would be what you think of when you think about “youth group.” Friendships will be formed, there will be musical worship, relatable teachings, and small group discussions. There will be monthly connection events for fellowship, fun, and food (The 3 Fs of youth groups).
High Schoolers (HS)
Students in 9th-12th grade during the current school year
Echo: Ascent (HS)
ECHO: Ascent HS will meet in The Attic on Sunday nights from6-8pm. If the schedule changes, we will communicate.
Echo: Dyno Groups
ECHO: Dyno Groups are our discipleship groups. Groups will be formed based on age, grade, or gender. The studies are usually 3-6-week commitments. These small group (6-8 students) led studies will vary from straight Bible studies, to book studies, to topical studies. We ask students to COMMIT to the time expectation as there will be outside readings, writings, and maybe service projects. ECHO: Dyno Groups MS will primarily meet on Wednesday evenings at Keystone church from 6:30-8:00pm. ECHO: Dyno Groups HS may meet different times and days of the week but will primarily also meet Wednesday evenings at Keystone from 6:30-8:00pm.
