Welcome to The Tribe. Our family is your family.

Our mission is for every student to understand that they have a family that is here to love and support them through the journey we call life. Our Tribe is a group of people who love Jesus and love people.

We create contagious community.

Rather than sitting around and waiting until Jesus comes back or doing church out of a sense of history and tradition, we’re creating irresistible environments and events that connect with students. Society is starved for true community. We were created to do life together and wired to live in community.

We give hope.

We intentionally lift our eyes to the horizon and look for those needing to hear about Jesus. In a world infected with hopelessness, we want to extravagantly share the hope that comes through faith in Jesus. We have hope because we have Jesus. You can belong. You can overcome. You have a purpose.

Tribe Student Midweek Services

Our Tribe meets on Wednesday nights in the Fellowship Center for our midweek service. This is a service where we intentionally take our 6th-12th grade students deeper spiritually. We achieve this goal with two main tools: worship and learning from God’s Word. The midweek service is from 6:30-8:00 PM. Doors open at 6:00 and this is when most kids arrive to enjoy playing games and hanging out together.

Mt Vernon Church is passionate about seeing students become leaders of today and tomorrow as they follow Jesus. On Sunday mornings we encourage students to worship with their families, find ways to serve at Mt Vernon Church, and connect with others in a student Life Group. We also have events designed just for students throughout the year.

Tribe Student Life Groups

Our student Life Groups give students an opportunity to connect with each other and with a group leader one-on-one. There they can ask questions, grow closer to Jesus, and build better relationships with other students. It’s about owning your faith and living life alongside your favorite people.

We’ve all been there, and we’ve all needed someone to talk to or hang out with. Find a group of friends who are dealing with the same stuff you are, because you can’t do life alone!

Middle School and High School Life Groups meet Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM in “The Basement.”

The Basement

One of the environments where contagious communities of hope takes place is in The Basement. The Basement is designed to be a safe place for students in 6th-12th grades. It is the stomping grounds for our Tribe student group. It is located downstairs from the Fellowship Center. There you will find students eating breakfast and enjoying community with one another every Sunday morning for the 30 minutes before Life Groups begin.

All Students Are Welcome!
