The New Student Center is going to be opening at 1420 Sumter Street in just a few weeks! We are so excited to move in after anticipating this moment for several years.

We want you to celebrate with us so come be a part of the grand opening and see for yourself what we’ve been doing over the last year. Come tour the building and witness first hand the new spaces our students will be learning, studying, worshiping, and praying in. Enjoy refreshments as you walk around and see the dramatic transformation from the previous YMCA building.

We are very happy that our Middle School, High School, and College students will finally have the new student center they’ve been dreaming of. Come be a part of the celebration and bring your family too.
