Mountainview Student Ministry

Experience that Makes a Difference

Our student ministry team has years of experience working with students from junior high through college. Your student will benefit from a team approach that will prepare your student for the challenges they face.

Family Ministry Approach

We believe that parents are the key to the spiritual growth of their children. That is why our student ministry team works closely with our Mountainview Kids team to provide a comprehensive approach to family ministry.

An Active Student Ministry

One of the reasons many people move to South Denver is because of the great schools that are available for their kids. We believe having a great church community is even more important. It’s one of the reasons we have invested in a growing student ministry. Your student will have weekly opportunities to grow closer to God and to other students and adult sponsors. In addition, they will be challenged to develop a spirit of service through regular service opportunities. Learn more below.

Summer Service Days

In the Bible God tells us “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8) What does it look like to do justice? To love kindness? To walk humbly with Jesus? Jesus is our ultimate example. He cares for the lost, poor, hurting, needy, oppressed, foreigner and widow, and he calls his followers to do the same.

This summer we have a number of awesome opportunities to serve our community and learn from people who are different from us…or not so different. Sign up for just one day, or sign up for all of them! There is no cost, but some days require supplies. Join us as we learn how to be servant leaders by doing, just like Jesus.
  • June 9 – Neighbor Network: Neighbor Network (a local non-profit that works to help the aging population in Douglas County continue to live independently) to help their clients with a “spring cleaning day.”  We will go help with some minor repairs, deep cleaning, and yard work that they can’t do themselves.
  • July 13 – Open Door Urban Ministries: We have a long partnership with this great ministry, who seek to serve and help the homeless population of Denver. This is a great day where we learn about homelessness as well as interact with the homeless community. (A sack lunch, snacks and water are required).
  • July 24 – North Littleton Promise: NLP is a non-profit that runs a program for kids under the poverty line. Most of the population NLP helps are immigrants living in Littleton/Englewood. NLP provides meals, tutoring, adult relationships and a safe place to be. We will provide lunch and run a program of games with kids to give NLP leadership a chance to be together, plan and train. (We will provide lunch for the kids and ourselves).
  • July 26-30 – Compassion Experience: Compassion is a worldwide ministry seeking to end hunger and poverty in children. To help educate people they are coming to Mountainview and setting up a “poverty experience” for our community to learn and grow from. You can sign up just to attend, or sign up to help set up and tear down.
Come for one, or come for all!  Let us know you are coming by signing up here.

Regular Weekly Programming

Sunday Morning 4:12

We believe small groups are an important part of our walk with Christ and our spiritual growth. They help us build community with fellow Christians, discuss and learn about the Bible together, and figure out what it means to be the Church here in this world. As a student ministry we feel that small groups give our students a safe place to talk about their lives and learn to support and encourage one another. It gives them positive interactions with Christian adults who take an interest in their lives, and helps them learn about Christian Community. Our student LifeGroups begin with food and hangout time,  a short teaching and then spend most of 4:12 in our age and gender specific small groups.

All grades 6th-12th meet on Sunday mornings at 9 am. We encourage parents to serve in one of our weekend ministries (such as children’s) while their student is in class and then to worship together during another service.

Wednesday Night ENGAGE (during the school year)

Our mid-week programming known as “ENGAGE” takes place each Wednesday from 6:30-8:00 pm and meets in the Youth Room. More often than not bringing friends to church can be scary and intimidating. For a student who has never been to church before many of the things we do seem weird, and talking about the Bible can be hard to understand. So at Mountainview we have Engage, a place where students can bring their friends to experience church in a way that makes them feel welcomed, cared for, have fun, and hear the gospel in ways they can understand and relate to.

At Engage we do many different things. Perhaps one night will be a game night. Another night we may have music and hear a testimony from someone willing to share their story of coming to Christ with teenagers. Maybe one night we’ll do a service project or watch a movie!
