Congratulations to the Class of 2016! Sunday, June 5 is Graduation Sunday; this is the day high school seniors can invite the PazNaz family to celebrate alongside them and recognize them for their hard work! There are a couple of different ways the graduates will be celebrated on this day. If you would like to be involved in the celebrations, contact Pastor Mackenzie before May 25.


Student Ministries wholeheartedly believes socioeconomic status and financial difficulties should never be an obstacle which prevent a student from attending a trip! If finances are the only thing coming between you and a trip you want to go on, contact Pastor Mackenzie to talk about the possibility of assistance and volunteer opportunities.

Forms and Documents


All students attending a retreat or event must have an active FAMILY RELEASE FORM on record. The forms cover January-December, meaning only one need be filled out each year. Families with multiple students in the ministry must only fill out the form one time, provided the filled form includes each child's name and medical information.
