Students at Spotswood.
CONNECT GROUPS | SUNDAYS AT 10:15A & 11:30A
MIDWEEK | WEDNESDAYS AT 6:30P
Spotswood Students exist to help middle and high schoolers experience life change, because of Jesus, one step at a time. Our Student Ministry, led by Pastors Dakota Gragg (High School) and Pastor Kyle Kelley (Middle School), is one of our most exciting ministries at Spotswood. With relevant, engaging, age- & stage-specific teaching, these two ministries are constantly growing and offering new opportunities to engage and get connected.
Midweek for Students.

Current Series: Username
Did you know the average person has over 25 different Usernames? Whether its Xbox Live, Email, Instagram, or YouTube, there are that indeed many different online worlds in which people spend their lives. And we don’t have to tell you that we can sometimes be different people depending on the Username we’re using at the moment. Sadly, we do this in real life, too. It’s amazing how different we can be around our friends than we are around our families, on social media, or at church events. When we live with so many different Usernames, its difficult to know who we really are. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Join us for this series as we talk about the Usernames God has for us and how consolidating are identities to those names can ease our anxieties increase our sense of belonging in this world, and give us confidence to pursue wherever God has us heading in life.

High School Guys Retreat • Resolve
March 27-29 • Watermarks Camp
Speaker: Chad Davis (Assistant Pastor of Student Ministry, Harmony Bible Church)
To Resolve is to decide firmly on a course of action, to have a strong determination towards something. And isn’t this the kind of follower Jesus has called us to be, one that puts our hand to the plow and and doesn’t look back? Yet in a culture where ideas are fluid, truth is relative, options are plentiful, and commitment is optional, it can be harder that ever to be a man of resolve. This weekend, with the encouragement from our fathers, we will delve into the topic of how to pursue hard after God’s heart for the world, and his intent for us as men. We hope that you will join us.
Retreat will Include:
Big Group Bible Study • Worship • Small Group Discussion • Topical Breakout-Sessions • Team Building Activities/Field Games • High/Low Ropes Course/Rock Wall • Archery/22 Rifles/Skeet Shooting • Campfire • Tent camping (optional)
High School Girls Retreat • Restored
April 24-26 • Watermarks Camp
Speaker: Tanya Glanzman (speaker, writer, MA LPC)
Ever feel like you know the “church answers,” but they don’t seem to be making any difference in your life? If we have a relationship with Jesus, the Bible says that we’ve been made new, but sometimes it just doesn’t feel that anything is new. It can be hard to see the victory Jesus promised, when there are so many things that seem to weigh us down, like anxiety, broken relationships, and secret struggles. Join us for weekend where we learn how to lean into the Restored life God intends for us.
Retreat will Include:
Big Group Bible Study • Worship • Small Group Discussion • Topical Breakout-Sessions • Team Building Activities
Optional Free-Time Activities
High/Low Ropes Course • Archery • Shooting Range • Crafts/Spa • Projects/Henna
