Middle and High School Weekly Activities

Sunday Night Fellowship is the front door to our ministry. It is a great place to bring friends or try out youth ministry for the first time. We will meet on the fourth Sunday of every month at 6:30 p.m. for a time of hanging out, playing games and learning about who Jesus is and how he wants to change our lives.

Sunday School starts at 9:45 a.m., in The Loft (upstairs Spitzer Ed) every Sunday morning. Both high school and middle school students will gather for a bit before breaking off into their classes (high school in Room 311, middle school in Room 302). Each class will watch a topical video and engage in discussions and readings from the Bible.

Wednesday Night Small Group is the place where we will go the deepest in our pursuit of Jesus. There will be different groups for middle school boys, middle school girls, high school boys, and high school girls. We will meet at various locations throughout the church on Wednesday nights, and each group will be led by our youth volunteers and staff. 

Sunday Mornings in The Loft

God desires each of us to take our knowledge of who he is and turn that into action. By connecting to dots of our faith, we can take the next step toward becoming what God desires for us as Christians.

Youth Director

Hello hello! It’s a pleasure to see you on our Youth Ministry page. I’m the Youth Director here at Sequoyah Hills, and I love helping others learn about God and His work in the world. I’m originally from Ohio, but moved to Knoxville where I played college basketball and met my wife Madi. Together, we spend most of our free time playing tennis, Just Dance, and eating spaghetti. I’m also a huge nerd when it comes to guitars, ping pong, musical theatre, reading YA, and watching the NBA. Feel free to stop by and chat or reach out anytime!
