Wednesday Nights on 3rd Floor

This spring on Wednesday nights, we are thrilled to finally have our new Student Minister, Garrett Biliske teach our lessons. We will continue to meet in smaller groups; however, we have divided the junior high from the high school for the spring semester.  

These groups are designed for us to get to know a smaller group of students well and for students to have 1-2 caring adults that consistently pray for and check on them throughout the school year. 

This year's small group leaders are:


  • Mark Thornbrough and Carson Mardis (Jr high)
  • Darren Lucas and Chase Castillo (9th grade)
  • Scott Beasley and Tony Pierce (10th grade)
  • Jed Winters and Dan Webb (11th and 12th grade)


  • Amy Biliske and Reagan Devoss (Jr high)
  • Angie Marple and Meredith Thornbrough (9th grade)
  • Dana Juarez (10th grade)
  • Staci Cope and Debra Webb (11th and 12th grade)
