WELCOME TO LOSM

LOSM, Live Oak Student Ministry, exists to make more and stronger

teenage followers of Jesus Christ.


We meet most Wednesday evenings and through worship, games, relevant teaching and an emphasis on grade and gender-based small groups, seek to meaningfully connect your student to Jesus.


A TYPICAL WEDNESDAY:

6:00-6:30pm

LOSMeal

Your child is busy and may be coming straight to Live Oak from sports, band or dance.  

We provide a light meal for $3 per kiddo. It's a time for them to decompress, hang out with their friends and leaders and get a quick bite to eat


6:30-8:00pm

WORSHIP / GAMES/ TEACHING / SMALL GROUPS

We teach Biblical Truth in a way that makes sense your teen.  Our worship is energetic and engaging.  And small groups are where your student can unpack what God is teaching them in a safe, loving and accepting environment, alongside adult leaders who care a lot.




Scroll down for our schedule (because there are Wednesdays that look different than the typical) and find information on how you can get involved as a parent!

February series

"meant to be"...february 6, 13, 20 & 27


"We're meant to be." 

It's how all of our favorite movies, songs, and books talk about love—as if the secret to an amazing relationship is a little bit of destiny, a whole bunch of feelings, and a tiny dash of magic. So it makes sense, when we observe the not-so-perfect, real-life relationships modeled by our friends, parents, and favorite celebrities, that we might start to wonder, “Wait—is that how relationships are meant to be?” In this 4-week series, you'll give students a better lens for evaluating their current and future dating relationships as you help them see that the secret to a relationship that's "meant to be" is to stay close to Jesus, date with purpose, know who you're looking for, and keep

sex in the right context.

The "Why"

By the time your student graduates high school we want them to embrace and experience these truths:

-I am created to pursue an authentic relationship with my Creator and model this for others

-I belong to Jesus Christ and define who I am by what he says and what he says about me

-I exist every day to demonstrate God's love to a broken world.


This is our strategy to connect with and build into students...

SMALL GROUPS...We believe that small groups are where we grow. That's when we can unpack all we have been learning and what it means in our lives! This is where the magic happens!  We offer age and gender based small groups on Wednesday nights. Small Group leaders facilitate meaningful conversation about how Jesus and Scripture intersects with real life now!


CONNECTIONS... Our goal is to know and care for your student...to know what's going on in their lives.  We want to come see them when they participate in extracurricular activities.  We want to track with them during their week though texts and phone calls. For this to happen successfully we need to know when they have games, concerts, performances etc.  Please send us their schedules!


INTERGENERATIONAL WORSHIP on SUNDAYS...We have learned that inter-generational worship can be catalytic to a student's faith so we encourage our families to attend Sunday services and worship together! 


CULTURE OF SERVING...We do not meet on Sunday mornings because many of our students are serving within the church. Statistics have shown that 7 out of 10 students leave the church and their faith when they go to college. However, it also shows that students who are serving and putting their faith into practice are more likely to maintain their faith when they leave for college. That's what we are striving for!
