VERB is where Middle School and High School students (7th-12th Grade) can connect with God, with other students, and with committed adult leaders who want to help them come to Christ and grow in Christ.
What to Expect
Each VERB focuses on a specific theme and includes an encouraging message, engaging worship, and lots of fun!
Each service starts at 6 pm, but students are able to come early and enjoy games and activities in the lobby.
Students will learn how to take their next step at Emmanuel Church, and it’s also a great place for students to invite friends checking out church for the first time.
If it’s your first visit, make sure to stop by the Visitor Hub tent when you arrive and say hi! We’ll answer any questions you might have and help make sure your experience is a great one!
