CATALYST Student Ministry

At Novesta, we greatly value our kids and teens. We invest heavily in our students because we desire to be a church with a great present and a promising future and not just a great past. Throughout the year we provide various events and activities to engage students and help them get connected to the life of the church!


    Throughout the school year, we host our Sunday Night Youth Group for all students in 7th - 12th grade. Each night features fun games, fantastic worship, a Biblical message, and small group time as well. Youth Group runs weekly from September - May each year meeting each Sunday night from 6pm-7:30pm

  • Retreats

    Michigan Statewide, the Laser Tag Trip, and Winter Retreats are some of the great opportunities we have for our students to grow deeper in their faith and to establish deep and lasting relationships with their leaders and with one another.

  • Bible Class

    Every Sunday morning we encourage students to gather for a time of learning and growth as we pour into God's word and see how it can shape and direct the students' lives. We have a jr. high and a high school class that meet during the 9:00am service.

  • 5th Quarters

    During the fall football season and winter basketball season we offer Friday night parties after Cass City home games. These parties last for a couple of hours and offer free food, fun games, and great friendships for all students in 7th - 12th grade.

  • Bible Bowl

    For students that want a deeper knowledge of the Bible, desire to study it, and like to travel, we offer a Bible Quiz learning program that meets throughout the school year. Each year a different text is selected and the kids study, practice, and compete over that material with other teens from around the state and country. The season concludes with a trip to the National tournament usually in a big city in another state.

  • Bible Study

    Wednesday nights during the school year we dive into God's word during our Bible Study time.  It is a great chance for the students to look together at the Bible and answer the important questions of:  "What does the Bible say?"  "What does it mean?"  and "How does this apply to my life?"  Jr. High and Sr. High students meet at7:00pm on Wednesdays to seek answers together.

  • u3 (College & Career)

    Unveiled | Unhindered | Undignified. These words describe how our young adults are striving to seek and follow Jesus. This group of 18-29 year olds meet quite a few times throughout the year (usually on Fridays)  to share a lesson or devotion while they spend time sharing life together and building long lasting friendships.

  • ...this is just the beginning...

    We are adding more events and opportunities for students to have fun, fellowship together, meet Jesus, and grow a lasting relationship with Him all the time.  We would love to have you join us!
