High School Ministries
King of Kings offers a foundational learning experience that prepares our students not only for their Confirmation day when they stand up in front of the church and confirm their faith in Jesus, but beyond. From Pre-K through 12th Grade, we believe that all these years are an important part of our faith formation.
- Connection Groups
9th Grade students meet primarily in small connection groups made up of their peers and a couple adult leaders. Connection groups offer deeper relationships and a more in-depth look at topics. These connection groups meet a few times each month, based on days and times that their schedules allow. Groups, with the help of their leaders, will choose from a small library of options including video and book studies.
9th Grade students will sign up for TWO of the four workshop options offered during the year. Parents are expected to attend workshops with their students.Workshops are an opportunity for families to dig into faith experiences and conversations together and to help bring the conversation home.
Students will also attend one of two weekend retreats offered during the year on the topic: What do I believe?The cost of the retreat is included in the registration fee. Retreats offer a longer time frame to explore what we’ve learned about God and our faith, and give us the opportunity to get out of our comfort zones to meet new people, have fun, and think more deeply about what we believe.

Peer Ministry equips students and adults with the skills to care for, welcome, and affirm the people around them, every day and in every relationship. It’s an amazing opportunity to help you know what to say when a friend is facing a difficult issue, or how to step up and meet someone new. We are hosting training on January 6 and January 7. Participants should be available for both days of training and willing to participate on the High School Leadership Team following training.
