Student Ministry at Return Church

At Return Church our students (6th grade-early college) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in an energetic, creative and relevant way.


We would love to see you and your family visit our Student Ministry.

Your first visit

Here's what to expect when visiting our Student Ministry for the first time:


During the Sunday morning service all students in grades 6th and up stay in the sanctuary with their family. We encourage our students to volunteer in ministries during Sunday service. We also see the importance of this generation taking part in the full church service and becoming a vital part of that experience.


Middle and High School students meet together during Youth Nights which take place every Wednesday evening from 6:30-8:30PM at Return Church. During this time, students participate in group activities/games, devotional, and snack time!

Before dropping your student off at Youth Night for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):


  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Child's birthdate
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

Be sure to fill out an information form. Ask the Youth Leaders for this form.
