Anchor Students

ANCHOR Students

HIGH SCHOOL:  Sundays 6:30 – 8:00 P.M. | MIDDLE SCHOOL: Wednesdays 6:30 – 8:00 P.M.

We believe we were created to be in relationship with God and with one another. Life is better with friends. Hang out, laugh, eat, and worship each week with other students. We believe in fun and growing spiritually. Each night begins with a fun game/activity and then a time of worship. It is our hope that together students and leaders would grow in the knowledge and experience of Jesus Christ.
ANCHOR Student Ministries wants to be real and authentic about who we are – with each other and with God. All are welcome to come and experience the love of Jesus. There is a place for you here.
There are lots of great memories just waiting to be made! Additional events are planned throughout the year aimed at developing stronger friendships and serving others. 


We long for you to have an authentic and real faith, experienced through a dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ and others. Prayerfully, as the Holy Spirit leads, we hope that you discover a rich life that pours out love and kindness into those around you.
Together We Value: Humility, Unity, Authentic Faith, Spiritual Disciplines, Moral Boundaries, Meaningful Friendships, Wise Choices, Putting God and Others First, and Walking Out What We Talk About.


We want to be part of your team. We desire to not only serve your student, but you as well. Through open and consistent communication, we hope to develop opportunities to serve you as a parent. ANCHOR Student Ministries is part of Gaines Church, where multiple opportunities are available for you to grow deeper right along side your student. Life is busy, but don’t miss out on opportunities to grow closer to God as an individual and as a parent. Please use the contact form with questions you have about ANCHOR Student Ministries and Gaines Church.

All volunteers working with students have a yearly background check conducted.
