The mission of Beverly Heights Student Ministries is to win, build and equip students to become devoted followers of Christ and devoted friends to one another and to help their families create supportive environments for their Christian formation.
A loving community of students and adults who are passionately seeking the heart of God and actively bringing Christ and His Kingdom to wherever God has sovereignly scattered us each and every day.
During the 10AM Christian Education hour, we have 2 classrooms for students in grades 6-12. We call our “Sunday Schools” classes “Construction Sites” for the Middle and High School Students which is “A Place to Build Your Faith.”
Middle School Construction Site, is a formal environment where students study the Bible using the DWELL curriculum from Faith Alive Christian Resources, Biblical teaching from a Reformed perspective. In a culture that worships busyness, DWELL Sunday school curriculum encourages students to pause and wonder, imagine, and interact with different parts of God’s Story. And as they do, they will discover that God is still at work in the world and in their lives.
High School Construction is also a formal environment where students study the Bible using Classic Theological curricular approach which includes Old Testament Study, New Testament Study, Church History, Systematic Theology and Practical Theology and Missions.
Fusion is our combined middle and high school Sunday evening event at Beverly Heights. We meet nearly every Sunday in the school year for activities and games, a full sit-down meal together, Christian fellowship, a short devotional and a time for sharing where everyone has seen God at work in their lives that week.
Lock-Ins are where we stay at the church overnight. We usually have a guest speaker and activities that are more involved from a time perspective! Sometimes we will have a middle or high school specific lock-in, other times they are combined.
Middle School Fall Laurelville Weekend Retreat – this is a Gospel-centric retreat gear specifically for middle school students that is run by the Pittsburgh Kid’s Foundation.
Passing on the particulars of the faith to the next generation (known as catechesis), is extremely important. Students have the opportunity to better understand many facets of our faith through our confirmation class which is led by our Senior Pastor, Nate Devlin. This class takes place in the winter months and is primarily 8th graders, but will sometimes have older students in it as well.
