We are working to create a healthy and safe environment where students, both Christian and non-Christian, will experience life change by daily making a 180-degree turn from sin to a life-giving relationship with Jesus.
Wed Nights 6:30-8p(ish)
Putting feet to this mission statement happens most at ONEEIGHTY, in our weekly large group meeting. The basic format includes: group games/mixers, funny videos, a call to worship, singing and Scripture, Bible-based teaching message, grade/gender-based small groups, and announcements. Then we end with snacks, games, and hang out time. We have a great environment for students to interact with game tables, outdoor games (weather permitting), and an engaging Student Center for those just looking for a comfortable place to sit and talk.
Special Activities and Events:
- Mission trips – Both local (Rogersville, Knoxville) and foreign (Puerto Rico, Kenya). See bottom of page for more info.
- Worship/Conference Events – Both weekend events (Believe, Disciple Now) and week-long summer events (MIX, MOVE).
- Service Projects – Our small groups participate in service projects together (Hope Center, Habitat for Humanity).
- Fun Events – Concerts, Hiking, Paintball, Ultimate Frisbee, etc.
These are meant to supplement our regular ministries in ways that create special memories and help provide an environment for developing a faith that expresses itself in practical ways.
Student Mission Trips
Every other summer, our ONEEIGHTY students go on a mission trip. In 2015, our student ministry got the chance to go on a mission trip to Kenya to visit the Barrons, FCC sponsored missionaries. It was a life changing trip for our students. Even now, they bring it up with each other, five years later. In Kenya, the students got to witness firsthand how big our God truly is and see what it is like to be a missionary and a Christian halfway across the world.
