Upcoming Student Events



Friday, March 22 - Sunday, March 24
5th-12th grade students

Christian Life Center (CLC) 

D-Now is coming! Our theme this spring will be called “Prodigal”. 

Wade Parker will be our guest speaker, and The Museum will be our worship leaders. 


7th-12th Grade: Registration is $75, which includes a T-Shirt, journal, study guide, and all your meals from Friday evening to Sunday morning. Please signup at your link below if you are planning to come. 

5th-6th Grade: Registration is $25, which includes a T-shirt. This year, you will be allowed to come to certain portions of D-Now. We will announce specific details soon. Please signup at your link below if you are planning to come. 

Church: The Student Ministry NEEDS YOUR help. We need for people in our church to be “host homes” for our students over D-Now. You will simply volunteer to keep a group of youth at your home on Friday night, March 22 and Saturday night, March 23. If you would like more information on being a host home, please contact Brother Brent Mayes.

* DEADLINE: You must register by Thursday, Feb 28, so we have time to order your T-shirt before D-Now. Students who register after Feb 28 may not receive a T-shirt by D-Now. It may come after the event has passed. 


Winter JAM

Thursday, March 21, 2019
7th-12th grade students

James Brown Arena, Augusta, Georgia 

Pre-Jam: 6pm  /  Main Show: 7pm

Our student ministry will be attending Winter Jam this March to see Newsboys United, Danny Gokey, Mandisa, Rend Collective, Ledger, Newsong, Hollyn, Dan Bremes, Ty Brasel, Manic Drive, Adam Agee, and Greg Stier. 

Winter Jam is a wonderful, family-friendly event, but it has some unique challenges.

  1. Thursday Night: Winter Jam occurs on a school night this year and is in downtown Augusta. 
  2. Because you cannot buy tickets ahead of time, you have to arrive early and stand in line for a while to get good seats. 

Therefore, the Student Ministry has decided to take church buses and vans to drive our students to Winter Jam! But, we will have to meet rather early. 

We will meet at the church at 3:00pm, so as soon as school is out, you will have to head to the church. And, we will be coming back to the church fairly late, and we know it is a school night. 

With all that said, we want to provide this opportunity for our students. We understand if some cannot make it due to it being a mid-week event. We are glad to answer any questions that parents or students may have. 

If you wish to go, please sign up at the link below.


Student Week

June 22-28, 2019
7th-12th grade students

Appalachian Outreach
AO Ministry Center, 511 Municipal Drive, Jefferson City, TN 37760

Student Week is our student ministry getaway for next summer. We are organizing our own camp and missions experience! We will be going to Jefferson City, Tennessee from June 22 to June 28. Over those 7 days, we will be combining summer camp and missions in only the way Abilene Students could do it! 

  • We will be staying in dorms at Carson-Newman University. 
  • We will be working in seven different mission locations. 
  • Our youth choir will be singing in several locations. 
  • We will be having some fun in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. 
  • All meals & transportation will be provided. 
  • Worship, prayer, study, games, food, and very, very little sleep. 
  • Plus, you get a hip new, limited-edition Abilene Student T-shirt, which may be worth the entire cost of the trip. 
  • It will be the BIG student week of the summer. 

Think about what you know about summer camp and missions, put them together and multiply the adrenaline by 1000. That will get you close to what this trip…or experience…will be. 

Through January 31, the total cost is $299 per student, and this is all-inclusive for everything!
(On February 1, the cost increases to $329. Due to camp restrictions, we may not be able to accept any new reservations after Feb 28, so that is our final deadline.) 

Sign up today by clicking the button below and paying your $50 deposit. 


Wednesday night Dinner (January 16)

Wednesday Nights at 5:30 pm
5th-12th grade students

Christian Life Center (CLC) 

This Wednesday, January 16, we are having a Baked Potato bar!

The cost to eat is $3, which includes your entree, sides, and drink. Plus, any guests will eat free, so invite your friends! 

Now, you don't have to remember your money or keep up with it! You can just prepay for your Wednesday night meals ahead of time. It helps us plan for how many is coming. And, it helps you know that dinner will be ready when you get here! 

Please click the registration button below to let us know if you/your student is coming. Please sign up by Tuesday at noon, so we have time to plan for Wednesday night. 


Wednesday night dinner (Jan 16, 23, & 30)

Wednesday Nights at 5:30 pm
5th-12th grade students

Christian Life Center (CLC) 

Does your student eat in the CLC every Wednesday night? If so, you may prepay for a month at a time and save money. When you signup ahead of time, we can better plan our meals. We pass that savings back to you. Its a win-win for everyone! 

The normal cost to eat is $3 per week, but if you sign up for the final three weeks of January, only pay $7.50 instead of $9.00!
