At InsideOut, we’ve created a large group environment for high school students just like you.
After all, we figure you want to be wherever your friends are. We make this time as fun and relevant as we possibly can.
But we go a couple steps further and do two things we believe are vitally important for you: we pay attention to what’s going on in your life, and we care about you. This happens in our small group environment. Every week after large group, you will get together with your small group to spend time in a more intimate setting, talking, processing, and praying about what’s going on in your lives.
It’s simple: big group to small group. The goal is for you to leave feeling energized to go out there and tackle another week!
When you arrive, be sure to come to the First Time table, where you will fill out an online student profile. We use the profiles to place you in a small group of students that are your same gender and grade. We will also try and match you with students that attend your school. The Host Team will let you know what to expect for the afternoon, and they will be able to answer all of your questions. See you this Sunday.
InsideOut meets Sunday afternoons from 4:30–6:30 p.m. at both campuses.
Why does the high school ministry meet on Sunday afternoons?
We have found that this is the least scheduled time for high school students during the week.
How are groups formed?
We create groups based on gender, grade, and school. Our desire is that students have friends in their small groups who attend the same school because the level of accountability and the depth of relationships increase when students see friends from their small groups on a daily basis. Each group is formed differently, and we will work with you to create the best experience possible.
How do students connect in Student Impact?
Student Impact is an opportunity for students to serve in Waumba Land, UpStreet, and Transit on Sunday mornings. Whether it’s setting up, leading a small group, or helping run production, there are many ways to get involved. Students who want to serve should tell their small group leaders.
Why should students attend special events?
Because they are incredible! From the beach to the mountains, these events are filled with meaningful sessions and tons of fun. They provide students with opportunities to connect relationally with their small groups and leaders. Students tend to walk away from events excited about their faith.
My student has expressed a desire to get baptized. What is the process for InsideOut students?
That’s awesome! We’re excited with you! Please go to southside.org/baptism and fill out an application. Someone will be in touch with you soon.
