The Psalmist writes, in Psalm 119:9, “How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word.”

At Third, we believe that living according to God’s word encompasses worship, community, and discipleship. Whether you’re in College, single and developing your career, or starting a family - we believe that getting connected with other believers can help connect you to God’s Word. In addition to worship, we have several offerings and resources that can help you, wherever you are spiritually.

Resources & Ministries

College Students

At Third, we believe worship to be integral for any level of discipleship or spiritual formation. While we know that Sunday morning can easily become a time to catch up on sleep or homework, we’d encourage you to commit to worshipping at a local church in addition to your on-campus community. If you’d like to try out Third, please come to our worship services at 8:45, 10:00, or 11:15. 

Questions? Contact Karen HayesAndi Redmond, or Phillip Yelverton.



College Sermon Chats
Sundays in June and July
12:30 p.m. at Shore Dog Cafe

The college ministry will be gathering each week at Shore Dog, right across the street from Third, following the last worship service. We'll meet for a light lunch and to discuss the sermon we just heard; ask questions, disagree, or talk about something you learned. Bring some money for lunch and your thinking caps! Questions? Contact Phillip Yelverton.
