The Student Gospel Community is composed of middle and high school students from around the Newnan area. We gather each Wednesday evening at the church building, to spend time studying God's word, asking and answering tough questions about Christianity, and spending time together to eat and hang out.
Our group also comes together for recreation and missional projects. We understand that our greatest opportunities for missional living is where we already are present: our schools, teams, and clubs.

2013 began with taking serious look at the Bible and asking the big questions about it. Is this really the Word of God? Why is it authoritative? Can we really trust it? Does it have errors? etc.
Spring will be a time of taking an in depth look at the overall story of the Bible. We are looking at four major aspects of this story Creation, Fall, Redemption, Restoration and seeing that this is really the greatest story ever told.... in fact, it is the Ultimate Story. As we go through the parts of this story we will also be considering some tough questions like - What about evolution? Why is there evil in the world? What is God's plan? What is heaven like? We are also currently anticipating summer camp, which will be June 3 - 8th, and we are doing a few projects to help us raise money to go.
Summer will be a time of beginning an in depth look at Biblical Redemptive History. We will take what we learned in the spring about the ultimate story and zoom in to the unfolding of God's redemptive plan, noting major events in history as depicted in the Biblical accounts. We will see that Jesus is the great rescuer and the promised Messiah and the resurrection is the central event of all of history and of Christianity. We will also take advantage of the extra free time summer allows to grow in our relationships and our service both inside and outside of the church.
