Student Life is the ministry of 6th through 12th grade students at Open Life. We are united around the mission of students leading students into a growing relationship with Jesus. We are uniquely positioned in a region with 8 unique school districts within a 10 mile radius and wide open opportunities to impact students in Middle School and High School.
We do this through weekly groups, monthly events and outreach opportunities.
Every month we rotate homes which allows for new activities and exciting opportunities for all the host families as well as the students who love our time together. Join us from 6:30pm-8pm every Wednesday.
We are so excited to have our third annual Student Life Christmas Party! This event will be an opportunity to highlight generosity, have fun, and make Jesus known. Here is all you need to know about the celebration.
Ugly Sweater Contest
Ladies and gentlemen, go into your grandparent’s closet and find their sweaters, because it’s about to get UGLY. The ugliest sweater of the evening will be voted upon and rewarded with an amount of candy no student ever needs, but always asks for.
White Elephant Gift Exchange
Besides Jesus, giving is one of the more important parts of this Christmas season. The White Elephant gift exchange is simple. Simply go into your closet and grab something that’s collecting dust, but someone else might find useful. Wrap it. Bring it. And get ready for some fun. If you don’t have anything that you’d find to be fun for an exchange, go ahead and purchase something. We do want to keep the cost down around $5 for the sake of just having fun.
Something I love (a little too much obviously) is dessert! I know we have some talented students and parents out there that can bake well. I’d like to invite you to make something wonderful to bring in!
Another thing. The student who brings in the most new friends will receive a $25 gift card of their choice!
WINTER CAMP 2018
Winter Camp has been a dream since the launch of Student Life in 2015, and I’m pleased to announce that it’s happening soon!
The final details for Winter Camp 2018 are in the works. We would love it if you join us in prayer to ensure that this weekend is the most incredible, faith-building time in your child’s life.
Make sure to mark February 9-11th on your calendar. Keep your ears open for more information and pricing to follow!
