Old North Students is especially designed for 5th to 12th grade students. We desire to see our students grow in their relationship with Jesus and be equipped to thrive in school and be prepared for their next steps after graduation. We combine large group teaching, small group discussion, a variety of special events, and intentional outreach activities to give a collection of venues for spiritual growth.


These meetings function similarly to parent-teacher conferences in school. The parent(s) will meet with Pastor Kyle, Pastor Si or Olivia to discuss your student’s overall well-being, spiritual growth, and his or her youth group experience! You spend more time with your student than we ever will, and it is a privilege for us to partner with you to help your student know the Lord.

Our Bible reading groups consist of 2-3 students with one leader reading the Bible each week. They will all read the same passage and answer 5 questions on their own. The group will meet once a week for 20-30 minutes to discuss those answers about the Bible reading. The goal is to teach and train Bible reading and study skills. Our hope is that by meeting regularly, students can learn Bible reading accountability throughout the week. If your student is interested and your family schedule is flexible, contact us using the link below to find a time and leader to commit to this next level of discipleship.

On Sunday mornings we stay together as a large group. There is time for students to have fun together which enables them to know each other better. The main thing we do is worship and learn through a message from Pastor Kyle. We also have one-to-one Bible reading groups available between services for those who want to dig deeper into God’s Word.

On Wednesday nights our high school ministry is a combination of large group teaching and small group discussions. These small groups are divided by age and gender.
