Rush is our Middle School youth ministry at Rush Creek. Our group verse is “For to me living means leaving for Christ…” Philippians 1:21. We endeavor to empower and equip students to live for Christ and love God’s Word. During the year RUSH meets on Thursdays from 6-8PM. During the school year our after school program, Drop Zone, takes place from 3:30-5:30PM and Rush begins right after Drop Zone with dinner from 5:30–6PM. From 6-8pm students will play games, eat a snack, receive a Bible lesson and participate in a small group discussion time. During the year, The Rush has various special events and activities, including a Fall Unity Retreat.
The Rush is unique in that, though it is a program geared toward 7th and 8th grade students, it is also a training ground for our 11th and 12th grade students leaders. Beginning in 8th grade our students can begin our Servant Leadership Training course and apply for servant leadership opportunities within our church. Each student leader is matched up with an adult mentor who regularly invests in these young leaders as they learn to serve, plan, teach and lead within Rush.
The Rush’s Mission Statement
