February 22nd through March 29th
What is the challenge?
Join a Deeply Rooted Group (DRG) and be ALL IN for six weeks.
How do I do it?
Sign up for one of the brand new groups at Storm on Feb 8th or online (beginning Feb 9). Attend each session and do any “homework.”
So, how is this different?
We are giving up Storm for Lent. From Feb 22-March 29, High School Ministry will not meet at 6:30pm on Sunday Nights for our usual program (Storm). Instead, students are invited to join all new small groups (DRGs) that will meet at different times and in homes.
Small Groups have been age and gender based on Sunday Nights. For the Six Week Challenge, students are invited to sign up for a DRG based on content.
Check out the DRG options below. If none of these options seem right for you or you aren’t quite ready for the challenge, we have lots of other things happening on the High School Ministry Calendar.
Beginning Feb 22, on Sunday mornings 9am-10:15am students are invited for breakfast snackage, worship, teaching, and some fun connecting with other students and High School volunteers in the Loft. We also have a Broomball event, service opportunities, and other just plain fun things to be announced.
Deeply Rooted Group Options:
Group size is limited to 10 students, except Senior Seminar.

Basic: Who is God? with Scott Garvey, James & Jill Cardarella, Sundays 5-6:30pm
@ The Cardarella’s on Arran Ave
How we approach being a Christian changes when we have a good understanding of God’s character and what it means to follow Jesus. Students will watch a teaching video by Francis Chan and then look into the Bible together. This group is full.
1 Peter with Allie Brown and Jeff Moorshead, Sundays 5-6:30pm
@ The Hylton’s on Hopkins Rd
What would one of Jesus’ first disciples say to a group of Christians who feel abused for their faith and are sometimes asking, “Is following Jesus worth it?” Find out by studying 1 Peter together. Not only will students study together, but by the end of this study, they will have learned methods to be able to study on their own. To sign up <CLICK HERE>
Not A Fan, A BOYS ONLY GROUP with Forrest Peterman and Wes Davis,
Sundays 2-3:30pm @ The Krimm’s on Croftley Rd
You can be a fan of the Ravens without it ever really changing your life. Some people do all the Christian things, but their lives never really seem to change–Kyle Idleman calls this “being a fan” of Jesus. Students will watch a teaching video together and work through discussion and Bible passages to understand what it really means to follow Jesus. This is a BOYS ONLY group. This group is almost full, to sign up please contact Joe firstname.lastname@example.org.
