At Route28 Student ministries, we want to CONNECT students with peers, adults, and God, help them to GROW their faith in Christ, and LIVE out that faith in their everyday lives.
Matthew 28:19-20 says "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
We believe that, in these verses, Jesus is calling us to a lifestyle, at Route28 Student Ministries, we call that the 28Lifestyle.

Route28 isn't just a place where students go on Sunday evenings to hang out with friends, sing some songs and listen to a bible-based message. We are a community of students and adults across the Mid-Michigan region who want to make God known in our communities. We love Jesus. We love music. We play video games. We go to concerts. We go camping. We play paintball and laser tag. We love our neighbors and we want YOUR students to get involved in our ministry!
We meet in the RouteHub on Sunday evenings. During these meetings, we hang out with friends, play lots of games, listen to lots of music, and spend some time worshipping and learning from God's word together. Our middle school students meet from 5:00pm-6:30pm (doors open at 4:45pm) and our high school students meet from 7:00pm-8:30pm (doors open at 6:45).
We have our Discipleship Community classes on Sunday Mornings at 10:00am. These classes are split up by grade (5th/6th, 7th/8th, 9th/10th, 11th/12th). In these classes, our middle school students learn about faith formation (5th/6th grade) and bible knowledge (7th/8th) while our high school students learn about biblical living (9th/10th) and apologetics/theology (11th/12th).
Route28 isn't just something we do at church. It's something we do every single day. In Matthew 28, Jesus commands his disciples to go and make disciples and obey his teachings. Those two commands aren't two separate commands...you can't make disciples without obeying his teachings, and you can't obey his teachings without making disciples. This isn't something we do, it's something we LIVE!
