Student Ministry

The Circuit

Every Wednesday night, students join old friends and make new ones, engage in powerful worship led by an incredible band (seriously…they’re fantastic) and connect with a small group to ask big questions about faith. Small groups are just that, small.  We want you to be yourself. Our groups are led by amazing adult volunteers who are passionate about connecting students to Christ (these folks are the secret sauce at Circuit).

Outside of Wednesday nights, you’ll have a chance to join student leadership teams, put your talents to work at all kinds of Shepherd ministries, jump onto life-changing retreats and mission trips or just smack a broomball down the ice (and if broomball is not your thing, we’ve got other super fun options). Come and check out why so many students call Circuit home on Wednesdays! And by the way, did we mention we LOVE guests?  



Jr Circuit | Grades 6–8
Sr Circuit | Grades 9–12

Grades 6–8

Jr Circuit

Wednesdays | 6:30–7:45pm
Large group 6:30-7:15, Small group 7:15-7:45

Jr Circuit is a whole lot of awesome. Hang out with your friends and get your Ms Pacman or table tennis game on. Pick up a not-necessarily-healthy-snack, compete in Kahoot trivia or take the Amazing Shot (you gotta’ see it to believe it). You’ll have the chance to ask a few questions about your own faith when you meet with your small group.

Grades 9–12

Sr Circuit

Wednesdays | 7:30–9:00 pm
Large group 7:30-8:30, Small group 8:30-9:00

Everyone belongs here (well, okay…everyone in Grades 9–12). Sr Circuit is a place where high school students participate in next level worship services, hear messages that are relevant to the high school experience and talk about big and small stuff during small group time. Expect to grow in your faith, get to know some seriously excellent people, and have a great time.

Even More Circuit

Circuit is not just for Wednesdays! Go deeper with some of these great opportunities.

Confirmation is that moment when a student affirms their baptism & begins their faith walk toward an adult life of following Jesus. At Shepherd, we welcome all our students to make this public declaration of faith and we want to celebrate it with you! Click here for more information.

Small Groups meet Wednesday nights, but Life Circuit small groups are available throughout the week. Have a look at all the groups available!

Get outside your comfort zone and join us on a Circuit Mission Trip! Summer mission trips shift the focus from ourselves and grow us in faith as we serve others.
