Volunteer Interest Form

Starting June 22/23 we are excited to welcome our high school youth into the worship center permanently for all services. High schoolers will no longer have a separate high school weekend worship experience, instead we will worship inter-generationally every weekend together! Swing by the Youth booth on the patio to get connected and sit with the youth team it alongside of your family.

Then, beginning on June 23 from 6-7:30pm, we will kick off our summer Sunday nights for our summer youth experience. Click below for more information:

Exciting things are happening in Family Ministries

This Summer


High School Ministry will now be joining us with the full congregation in the Worship Center every weekend to worship and learn from God’s Word.

In addition, starting June 23, students will meet on Sunday nights to worship and hear a message designed to help connect them with God and each other. We will also have Wednesday bonfires, movie nights and game nights as other ways for high schoolers to experience community this summer.


Starting June 22, Jr. High is taking over the Student Center. Students will experience a high energy, fun and welcoming environment with worship led by their peers, exciting games they can’t play anywhere else and teaching from God’s word. The new addition of leader-led table conversations will help students meet new people within their grade level and deepen existing relationships.


If you’re a college student get plugged in right away! Come to Mariners College Summer Kick Off on Thursday, June 20th @ 7pm the Student Center, Room 1.

Coming This Fall


Kids preschool to 5th grade are thriving with our Gospel Project curriculum. They will discover how the gospel unfolds, from Genesis through Revelation, and the grand redemptive narrative over the course of three years. This fall, your kids can sign up for a small group that will meet consistently during their regular weekend service so they can strengthen their relationships with each other. Their leader will be guide them through activities, games and discussions that reinforce the Bible lesson they learned.


This new High School Youth experience launches September 8, and happens on every Sunday and Wednesday evening for high school students to hear a message relevant to their lives, to get plugged into a life group with Godly adult leaders and to have a lot of fun. We created these two opportunities because we recognize that families in Orange County have busy schedules and we do not want to create any barriers for High Schoolers to be a part of this experience.
