IMPACT - Middle School

Ministry Coach: Melissa Stutz, 740.513.7554, melissalstutz@gmail.com


Sunday mornings MS students have Sunday school and are dismissed out of the church service after the worship.


Our MS ministry, called IMPACT, meets Thursday nights throughout  the school year from 7:00-8:30pm in rotating homes throughout Dublin. The first part of the night usually includes a fun large group game and food; then there's a biblical lesson taught and the evening ends with the students breaking into small groups to apply what they've learned. Every third week the students have fun social night.


High School

Ministry Coach: Jonathon Raymond, 614.301.6448 or jon_raymond@icloud.com


High School students attend the church service every week and then are dismissed just before the closing song to spend 20-30mins discussing the message and applying it to their lives. Parents supply snacks and drinks for the students to enjoy while they connect. Students are also encouraged to participate in Christian organizations like Young Life or FCA at their own schools.

Coach Jonathan also leads an Olympic strength training class and FCA sponsored Bible study the 1st and 3rd Sunday's of every month from 1:30-3:00pm at Shred CrossFit, (5725 Avery Rd. Dublin, 43017).
