awake student ministry

what is awake?

Awake is a weekly gathering of 6th-12th graders from The Bridge and surrounding areas. We're committed to helping students discover and deepen a relationship with Jesus that lasts beyond their time in middle school and high school. We do this by creating a fun and high energy atmosphere where students can feel accepted and cared for by dedicated adult leaders who look forward to seeing them every week.

what ARE Motion nights?

Happening on the 1st Wednesday of every month, MOTION nights are designed especially to connect students who are new to a relationship with Jesus or checking out Awake for the first time. Everyone will leave equipped and empowered to walk out their “next step” in their journey with Christ!

MOTION Nights are a worship experience for students like no other! Designed to help students connect with God and with each other, each month you will experience a different MOTION Night theme that will encourage you in your walk with Jesus. From the lobby, to worship, to the message, and beyond, you will experience a fun, welcoming environment that is both inspiring and encouraging.

Although service starts at 6:30pm, we encourage you to come early and hang out with us in the lobby. We’d love to spend time with you! Also, feel free to invite as many friends as you like!

If it’s your first time at MOTION Night, we promise not to embarrass you in any way. We would, however, like to encourage you to locate an Awake Leader when you arrive so that we can help orient you to the service.
