NVSM and Corona Updates
As our country and region work to navigatae new territory and take the necessary steps to ensure the health and safety of all people, NVSM is changing-hopefully just temporarily. Until restrictions are fully lifted by governments and school districts, NVSM has decided to suspend all in-person meetings, activites, and events. This includes midweek IMPACT, Sunday mornings, and other scheduled retreats, events, and activities. However, just because we are not meeting in person does not mean we are simply disappearing- far from it! We currently have a variety of ways for students, leaders, and families to connect within NVSM.
We are posting regular videos on our YouTube channel centered on walking students through the Gospel of Matthew. Each video covers a different chapter and provides insight, thoughts, and questions to be thinking through. We also have YouVersion Bible app studies underway, frequent "live" appearences on social media, and more. We are also taking IMPACT online each Tuesday (combining middle school and high school) with Zoom calls complete with games, prizes, devotional thoughts, and small groups. More information on all of these offerings, and more, can be accessed by suscribing to our weekly youth e-news.
We ask for all to be patient for a little while longer while we adjust to NVSM online and explore various opportunities, platforms, and online programs for our students. It is our prayer that students are able to use this time at home to deepen their relationship with Christ and grow in their faith that He will provide. It is also a time for families to come together in a new way-something that our culture has needed for decades. May this be a great time for the Kingdom of God, let's be partners with Jesus and examples of hope and light in Him. So please, take steps to physically distance yourself from others as needed, but do not let this be a time of social distancing, we need one another more than ever before.
Questions on what we have going on? Email us and we'll be happy to talk more!

Sunday Student Services
Our student services meet every Sunday morning. Students will experience powerful worship, relevant teaching, and a great time for open discussion. Not to mention some fun stuff and ridiculous games as well.
We begin the morning together in our own "Student Section" in the main auditorium to worship with the rest of our church body before heading to the youth room for our student services.
- Middle School Student Service (6-8th grade) meets on Sundays at 9am
- High School Student Service (9-12th grade) meets on Sundays at 10:30am
IMPACT is our midweek program for middle school and high school students. We meet throughout the school year to build real relationships, explore the Word of God, and grow closer to Jesus Christ. Groups are lead by amazing and caring adult leaders. Group times are crafted to be a safe place for students to check out Jesus while also taking a step back from often busy teenage lives in order to sped time with peers.
High School (9th-12th grade) meets Tuesdays, 6:30pm-8:00pm
Middle School (6th-8th grade) meets Thursdays 6:30pm-8:00pm
Come check it out sometime!
20/20 in 2020
This year we have a new program within NVSM: 20/20.

The best way to stay up to day with these events is to sign up for Enews or follow us on social media (see below). For more information click HERE!

The next few events have been adjusted due to COVID-19 concerns and delays. We will post about new events once everything is back up and running, hopefully soon!
Middle School Winter Blast
This year we are partnered with several other Converge NW churches for a time away at Black Lake Bible Camp. Stay tuned for 2021 dates and details!
High School Advance
Sadly Advance 2020 had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns and a desire to keep our students and leaders as healthy as possible. We will either try to reschedule something in the coming months or postpone 2021.
For many students, Summer Camp is a life-changing experience and highlight of their entire year. It is an opportunity to break away from the distractions of the every day and step into adventure centered and rooted in a discovery of Jesus in a new way!
Summer Camp 2020 will take place at Camp Bighorn in Montana, August 3-8th. Registration will open April 1st. More information HERE!
