The Lakeway Church Student Ministry is a place where students’ hearts and minds are engaged for a relationship with Jesus and led toward a life fully devoted to Him.

Students gather at the church building Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:30 for fellowship and fun! The purpose of these gatherings is to cultivate community among our students as well as encourage their walk with Jesus. Students will both rally around each other and rally each other toward Christ. They will begin the night together then high school and middle school groups will separate for teaching and small groups.

EROS (MILESTONE) Sundays at 9:30 am Feb 19 – Apr 2 (no meeting on Mar 12)
Middle school is a transitional time as many students begin to consider more and more the ideas of relationships, identity, sex, and dating, asking questions like: Who should I date? What does it mean to be attracted to someone? How should I date? How far is too far? LDI (Love, Dating, & Identity) is a 6-week journey that challenges middle school students to consider how God views them and what that means for how they should treat those of the opposite sex
