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’ve returned to school – in person for some and online for others – 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!


We are now meeting ONLINE only

every Wednesday evening at 7:00pm.

Meetings are for students in grades 6-12.  After a large group teaching, 

breakout rooms are used for small group discussions led by adult leaders.

Please email us at youth@mstarchurch.org for information about access to the online meetings.
