Ministries

College View Church is a community that seeks to joyfully follow Jesus, who “came to serve” (Mark 10:45). Our ministries are an opportunity to live out God’s love and to grow together in our journey with Jesus. We would be happy to have you join us in that journey! Follow the links below or call our main office, 402.486.2880, for more information on any of these ministries.

With music, Bible stories, and crafts, our mid-week Adventurer Club encourages children ages 4-9 in a growing, joyful relationship with Jesus. Adventurers meet in the lower level of the church on select Wednesdays. Check our events page to see if they’re meeting this week, or phone the church office at 402.486.2880.

Our College View Trailblazers Pathfinder Club is for kids in grades 5 – 10, with extended training available for students through 12th grade. Our Trailblazers meet together weekly (Wednesdays 6:15 – 8:15 p.m.) to learn life skills, practice teamwork, and deepen their spiritual commitment. Besides the weekly meetings, the Trailblazers are often out camping, doing community service, or on other fun adventures.

By studying the Word, we grow in faith together. College View Church provides many opportunities for adults to join together in study and growth.

  • Grow Where You’re Planted. Growing in God, with each other, and for our community.

The Women’s Bible Study meets Wednesdays at noon in Heartland Hall B, with lunch and childcare included. Each Wednesday at 7 p.m. is Hour of Power, a group meeting together in the Heritage Room for prayer and reflection on Scripture.
