CORE High School Ministry
CORE is the high school ministry of Third Church in Pella, IA.
We are called CORE because we are a community of believers striving to live with Jesus at the very core of our lives. We would love to meet you, help you meet some students and get plugged in to any of our ministry opportunities.
CORE GatheringsOur mid-week worship gathering takes place on Wednesday night from 7 to 8:15pm. We meet in the sanctuary (use "main entrance"). This is a great place to come to grow in your faith and worship God. It's also a great place if you would describe yourself as just checking out God. Our time is focused on community, worship led by a student team, and teaching from the Bible.
The Shed will be open before CORE with food, smoothies and other drinks available for purchase.
Small groups are your chance to get plugged into authentic discipleship, new friendships, and a ton of fun! Students will have the chance to join a small group each semester and each group is lead by an adult mentor. Groups are typically made up of students from the same gender and year in school.
CORE mission statement: Sending servant-hearted students with a passion for Jesus into the world.
CORE exists to provide students with an opportunity to experience an ever-deepening intimacy with the Triune God that expresses the fruit of the spirit as light in the world for the advancement of God's Kingdom in their every day.
