STUDENT LIFE

Welcome to Student Life, the youth ministry of Faithbridge. We are so excited that you are visiting us! 

Student Life is not just a somewhere for students to go, not just a place for students to have fun,  but a place where students learn who they are, serve our community, and connect with each other. But most importantly Student Life is a place where kids from 6th to 12th grade worship our incredible God together. 


We believe that students who attend Student Life gatherings and events will find out who they were created to be. They will find out who Jesus really is. We believe our students will develop into young men and women who not only seek out Jesus but develop a desire to seek out others who don’t yet know Him.


Together, we are Student Life. Together, we Worship, Connect and Serve!


All church activities are cancelled pending further notice. During this difficult time, we encourage our students to continue to reach out to each other over social media and phone! You can also connect with us on Facebook, our YouTube channel, or our weekly newsletter. Let us know if you'd like to be on our mailing list.

Parents, if you'd like to be on the list for our weekly email, or if you have any questions, email studentlife@faithbridgewi.com!


2020 Timber-Lee Summer Camps Canceled

Camp Timber-Lee has made the difficult decision to cancel summer camps for this season. You can find their official statement here. If you have students currently registered for either middle school or high school camps, you should be receiving direct communications from their team regarding next steps and refunds. If you would like to contact them, you may do so at campers@timber-lee.com or at (262) 642-7345. Please note that we do not have the ability to issue refunds for camp. All questions about refunds should be directed to Camp Timber-Lee.


While we are sad that our students won't be able to experience camp this year, we are still planning on holding some fun summer events and we hope our students will join us!


If you have any questions for the Student Life Team directly, please contact studentlife@faithbridgewi.com


Blessings,
