Encounter Youth is MorningStar’s student ministry, serving students in middle and high school (grades 6-12) and their families. Our gatherings have long been characterized by teaching and discussion around biblical truths, exploration of issues that concern young people, encouragement, worship, relationship-building, and of course, FUN. This is, after all, youth ministry!  Up until this past March, we were gathering at MorningStar Church on Wednesday evenings...and then we found ourselves in the middle of a pandemic. We took a hiatus from togetherness, and we’ve missed one another!  Now, especially since we’re returning to school – whatever that’s going to look like – we feel it’s time to reconnect, re-establish our relationships, and restart the motor of spiritual growth in our students.  It’s time to reboot!


For now, this will all happen ONLINE only, every Wednesday evening, beginning on Sept. 9. Please note the following important dates:


Wednesday, August 19

      7:00pm – Middle School Online Welcome Chat

      8:00pm – High School Online Welcome Chat

Wednesday, September 9

      7:00pm – EY Reboot – Separate online gatherings for middle school and high school students.
