Welcome to TRUENORTH!

TrueNorth exists to empower the next generation of disciple-makers. Our mission is to see students deepen their love for God, grow together as His family, and make a real difference in the world. We believe relational discipleship is the way to fulfill this mission. Come and join us as we follow the One who is unchanging, Jesus Christ.




High School Gatherings

TrueNorth: Several hundred High School students gather every Sunday at 9am in the High School room (upstairs in the main building) to hear from God’s Word and respond by worshipping together. This is an incredible way for students, both new and old, to get connected to our ministry and meet new friends.

D-Groups: Discipleship is the most important thing we do at TrueNorth. Our desire is for every student to be involved in a D-Group, because in these small groups they learn how to go deeper into God’s Word while also forming deeper relationships with each other. Sign up here.

D-group leaders: If you would like to volunteer as a D-group leader, contact .

LUG Heads: Why would a High School student be interested in attending a Wednesday night Middle School event? Great question! During LUG Live, the High School students (LUG heads) teach the Bible and lead discipleship groups of Middle School students. We are continuously amazed at how much thought, prayer, and heart our LUG Heads pour into leading their Middle School students every Wednesday night. Contact .

TrueNinth: A weekly space, during the school year, for ninth-graders where we focus all of our attention on building up the newest members of High School - in friendship, in discipleship to Jesus, and in character. Contact .

High School House Churches: Brookwood, Parkview, Artios, and Scholar's Guild house churches led by students, but huddled by staff. View current house churches or contact for more info.

LUG / Middle school

Welcome to LUG!

LUG (stands for Living Under Grace) is home to hundreds of middle school students and a whole host of caring volunteers. The major LUG gatherings are LUG AM on Sundays at 9am (year-round) and LUG Live on Wednesdays at 6pm (school year schedule).


Join us Sundays at 9am in the Middle School room, downstairs.


LUG Live meets Wednesdays 6-7:30pm, starting in the Fall of 2021


Sundays at 9am in the Middle School room, downstairs in the main building. LUG AM focuses primarily on teaching and worship while LUG Live on Wednesdays is centered around small group Bible studies and interaction.

LUG Live

Wednesdays, 6-7:30pm during the school year. LUG Live is centered around small group Bible studies and interaction. Each of these small LUG groups include a handful or two of students who are led by a LUG Head (a high schooler) and overseen by a parent volunteer. The Wednesday gatherings also mix in a bit of middle school fun and offer kids an opportunity to worship God together as a large group with a few hundred fellow students. And that’s just for starters. There’s a lot more going on with LUG and we hope you’ll check it out.

LUG Live   //   Wednesdays 6-7:30pm

Campus Thrive

Campus Thrive

Campus Thrive is a ministry where middle school students are empowered to be leaders within their schools. Students put their training into practice once a week at their local school, where their peers attend and experience the gospel. Students lead in worship, teachings, and skits that represent the Kingdom.

Interested in visiting LUG or have a question?
We would love to hear from you! 

Here at LUG, we believe strongly in the work of parent’s in their students’ lives. We want to walk alongside of you as your kids grow in maturity and their relationship in the Lord. We also want you to know how much we value your student’s safety and take every step we can to ensure it remains intact. Here are some questions that parents often ask us that we hope will help answer your questions as well.

1) What is the difference between LUG Live and LUG AM?: LUG AM meets on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM. During LUG AM students hear some teaching from God’s Word, connect with each other, and worship God together. LUG Live meets on Wednesday nights during the school year. It also includes hearing from God’s word, community, and worship, but adds in some crazy skits and games and, most importantly, discipleship. Middle School students break off into small groups where they learn about God’s Word from each other and High School leaders we call LUG Heads, overseen by parent volunteers called LUG Adults.

2) Who should I contact if I have a prayer request? We believe in the power of prayer. If you have a prayer request, please email requests to .

3) How can I stay in the loop? Visit our Connect page to sign up for email updates, like our Facebook page, and more!

4) How can I help? There are two great ways you can help. The first way is through prayer! It is through your prayer and God’s work that we are able to do the things we do, so never stop praying for these students and our ministry. Secondly, We love volunteers! Without volunteers, we simply could not do the ministry we do here at Grace. If you would like to be a part of LUG, email Robin Phillips, our Middle School Administrator, at .
