Students at Spotswood.

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.

HSM | Guy’s & Girl’s Bible Studies.


These are student-led studies. While we are still under COVID-19 restrictions, students are encouraged to observe social distancing at our meetings.


Girls Bible Study

Meets on the first and third Thursdays of the month

from 6:00-8:00P at Amie Johnson’s home

Students can contact the student ministry office for more information.

Current Study: Judges

Do you ever look around at the world today and feel like, “Can it get any worse?  Is everything in the world broken?”  Are the circumstances in your own life are leaving you discouraged and wondering when things are going to change?  Or maybe you are frustrated with yourself because you keep finding you are back at square one, stuck in a pattern of making the same mistakes. 

This spring, we are going to dig deep into the gritty history of a people struggling with who they are, bent on learning things the hard way.  We will find individuals caught up in the chaos of their time, asking the same questions we ask today.  And in the midst of the mess, we will encounter a God with bottomless patience, renewed mercy, and relentless love that chases after the heart of His people.  Hope you will join us for this study!  You will walk away knowing that you are not alone, that a patient God, is reaching his hand to you as well. 


Guys Bible Study

Meets May 26, June 9, July 7, July 21

from 6:30-8:00P in the Student Building

Current Study: Haggai

‘“Be strong, all you people of the land,” declares the LORD, “and work. For I am with you,” declares the LORD Almighty… “And my Spirit remains among you. Do not fear.”’ (Haggai 2:4-5, NIV) This was God’s promise to His people as they set out to rebuild the temple. It’s still His promise to us, as we build His church all over the earth. In this study, our priorities and spiritual apathy will be challenged, reminding us that God has given us a purpose: to be part of the most magnificent building project imaginable, the church. We hope you will join us for this study as we seek to fulfill the purpose God has given us! 

In HSM, discipleship takes place in the context of our Journey Groups, accountability groups of 2-3 students meeting with a mature believer biweekly.  Our Journey Group leaders will be equipped with tools to guide students through Biblical studies specifically addressing where the students are at in their walk.

How long does it last?
This depends on the student.  Discipleship can last anywhere from 6 months to 24 months.  Our initial study lasts 6 weeks.  We would then encourage groups to dive deeper into studies and topics that directly address where students are in their walk.
