About the Student Ministry

What do students really want? They want to hang out with their friends and feel accepted. They want a place where they are encouraged to celebrate their relationship with Jesus Christ. That is what the student ministry at Lavon Drive is all about.


Game Room and Common Groundz: Both Sunday morning and Wednesday night kick off with a time to hang out and chill out, and students are encouraged to take full advantage of the facilities offered at Lavon Drive. Our game room features a pool table, ping pong, foosball, air hockey, Wii, and Xbox, along with plenty of comfy chairs and benches to relax and catch up with friends.

Our coffee shop, called Common Groundz is located in the REAL Life Room serves up donuts and other delights on Sunday morning (free) and a full range of delicious frozen blended beverages on Wednesday evenings ($1 each). First Time Guests: Be sure to register when you arrive and receive a coupon for a FREE drink on Wednesday Nights.

DEEP, Sunday Morning, 9:30 (Grades 7 - 12): Let’s dig DEEP as we dive into God’s word through age- and gender-divided small group study. The morning begins with donuts, fellowship, and an open game room, followed by small groups. Each small group is led by one of our awesome youth leaders and is a safe, friendly, and inviting place for students to grow in their spiritual walk. Our youth leaders are passionate about investing in the lives of our students, and in addition to their dedication, they have all passed intensive background checks and are trained to work with students.

REAL Life, Wednesday Evening, 7:15 (Grades 7 -12): R.E.A.L. stands for Righteousness, Evangelism, and Love, and those are the core values at the heart of our Student Ministry. On Wednesday nights, the Common Groundz coffee shop opens at 6:45 and serves up the finest blended beverages on the planet, all for the cool price of $1 (FREE Drink for first time guests! Just register at the Welcome Table when you arrive!). Between 6:45 and 7:15, the game room is open and students are invited to arrive early and hang out.

From 7:15 - 8:30, REAL Life takes off, with an engaging combination of crazy games, inspiring praise and worship with our REAL Life Band, and practical, insightful teaching that reaches the students where they are and instills solid Biblical truths at a time when so much in their lives seems uncertain.
