The Emmanuel Student Ministry (Grades 7-12) exists to CONNECT you to Jesus Christ. We believe this is so important because the Bible clearly spells out that knowing Jesus is the only way to know God, and to have His gift of eternal life. Jesus Himself said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) Not only is CONNECTing with Jesus essential for life-after-death, but for this life as well! Jesus said, “I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10) and “Apart from Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5b) In other words, without Jesus, your life is meaningless. That’s why we want you to be CONNECTed with Him! ESM also exists to help CONNECT you with others who are seeking Jesus, for encouragement, friendship, accountability, and well… FUN!
