Merge is focused on equipping high school students to be disciples, so they can become key members of the church through the college years and beyond. We do this through fervent Wednesday Night worship experiences, Christ-centered small groups, transformational retreats and life-changing short-term trips. View the 2015-2016 Merge calendar.

Weekend Small Groups

All Campuses: August – May  

Small groups are a perfect place for students to form friendships with other students, build relationships with adult leaders and grow closer to God. Groups are encouraged to establish accountability with each other, get involved in ministry, serve the local community and participate in service projects. Freshmen and sophomores meet onsite at each campus during regular service hours. Juniors and seniors meet off-site on Sundays at 3:30 p.m. We do ask that you sign up to commit to a specific small group for the sake of consistency in relationships.

Wednesday Nights 

146th Street: August – May at 7:00 p.m.  

Wednesday nights are about getting together to worship God in a big way, learning more about the Bible, connecting with other high school students and playing a few games. If you're not sure what you think about God or you already call Jesus your Savior, but want to go deeper, this is the place for you! This is a great place to get connected, so feel free to invite your friends too. Registration is not required for Wednesday nights, just come as you are.

Short-term Trips

One way we launch our students into God’s kingdom work is through short-term trips. Each summer, Merge students have the opportunity to be a part of one of these many impactful mission experiences. Students can choose from a variety of service projects in dozens of different locations such as Indianapolis, Mississippi, Haiti, Kenya and more.
