Our Student Ministries offers programs for students 6th through 12th grade.  

There are many opportunities for your student to get involved all year.  

Our Student Ministries programs meet in our Anchor building on the Harderwyk Campus.

During the winter we follow the West Ottawa School snow days.  

If there is a snow day for the West Ottawa schools, all of our activities will be cancelled for that day also.

  • Open Anchor

    Each week we open our doors to all students grades 6th through 12th.  We provide a safe environment for students, each student must check in and check out.  Recreation, games, "family chats", dinner, a place for homework, and supervised after school experience with trained staff are available.  Each student will be required to follow the established rules and guidelines.  This is a drop in style ministry for students to stop in, hang out and build Christ centered relationships with other students and staff.  Open gym and other activities are available. 

    • School year hours:  Tuesday and Thursdays 3:00-8:00p
    • Summer hours: Wednesday's 12:00-5:00p
