At Canvas, our desire for students (grade 6-12) to encounter Jesus, build Biblical Community, and share that experience with others, while having a whole lot of fun! To achieve this goal, we engage in several different environments through the week:


Students in grade 6-12 join us on Wednesday nights starting September 12 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for a time of encourage, Bible study, prayer and fun! The group will be led by our youth pastor Stephen Blackaby and a great team of volunteer youth leaders and will take place at the Austin Home in the Highlands. If you have questions please email


At Canvas Students, we believe that all of our stories—all of our lives—are being divinely painted on a canvas that is bigger than we can see. So, each Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m., the students start with everyone at Canvas for a time of praise & worship and then they meet for Bible Study and fellowship as they seek to discover where their lives fit into the story of God. Once a month the students join the adults in the larger gathering so that families with students can enjoy being together being together.

Students (6-8, 9-12) are walking through a series titled: Jesus Studies. These studies cut through the confusion, teaching students a Christ-centered look at the major issues they deal with in life. Here are some of the areas we are covering: Jesus and identity, Jesus and your faith, Jesus and culture, Jesus and loving other, Jesus and tough times, Jesus and your image, Jesus and your stress, Jesus and forgiveness, Jesus and influence, Jesus and relationships, Jesus and mean people, Jesus and your future, and Jesus and stuff.


Our monthly Friday night fellowships were created to give students an opportunity to gather and have fun. We believe that amid all the pressures of teenage life, our students sometimes need to take a break and have good healthy fellowship! Our next Friday Night Fellowship is a BACK to SCHOOL PICTURE SCANVENGER HUNT on Friday, September 5 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. For more information for to join us email
