Family Groups

Family Groups are small groups of students that meet with their leader Wednesday nights for prayer, discipleship, and building relationships. Family groups happen every week whether your student is on or off campus.

During on campus nights students will get to experience group time, worship from the TrueNorth worship band, and an age specific message to help the grow their faith.

For off campus nights your student will meet with their group and leaders at a location like the park or a backyard to spend time in Bible study and having fun together with great friends.

BELIEFS

 

Our Mission is to lead students into a passionate relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our Vision is for all high school and middle school students to know the truth, experience the grace and live in the love of Jesus.

 

Our Five Truths

 

  • We are Loved

    John 3:16 Yes, God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him would not be lost but have eternal life.

  • No One Stands Alone

    Romans 12:4-5 Each one of us has one body, and that body has many parts. These parts don’t all do the same thing. In the same way, we are many people, but in Christ we are all one body. We are the parts of that body, and each part belongs to all the others.

  • God is For Us

    Romans 8:31 So what should we say about this? If God is for us, no one can stand against us. And God is with us.

  • Our Mess is our Message

    Romans 8:28 We know that in everything God works for the good of those who love him. These are the people God chose, because that was his plan.

  • We Can Follow Jesus

    Matthew 16:24 Then Jesus said to his followers, “If any of you want to be my follower, you must stop thinking about yourself and what you want. You must be willing to carry the cross that is given to you for following me.

We invite all students to Element in our hope to offer them a life changing choice to know Jesus. To protect the students and culture of Element we do have a list of behaviors and items that are not permitted at Element.

 

  • Behaviors not permitted

  • Element Suspension Policy

    We have three expectations for students who attend Element:

    2. Respect Leaders
    3. Respect Students

    If a student behaves outside of these standards they will receive a G6 write up and we will contact the parents the next day. If a student receives a third write up they will be suspended from Element until a meeting with the parents and student can be set to work toward a solution to the issues.
