In Onward Students, we desire for every student to be known and accepted, taught about Jesus and challenged to grow. We move towards this mission through Student Small Groups, Wake for Middle Schoolers, Shoreline for High Schoolers and several special events throughout the year.


We believe life change happens best in the context of relationships.

That's why we place every student in a small group based on grade and gender, led by young adult leaders.

DTown is our in-town winter retreat for students in grades 6–12 hosted by Watermark Community Church and more than 120 homes around the church. The worship services and activities at DTown are designed for students to make memories, build friendships, and consider Jesus. The weekend will interrupt busy, stressed-out routines, and give students a chance to sit back and evaluate their relationships with God and with others. This is a weekend you’ll never forget!

Plano Experience
Plano Experience is our Summer local missions trip hosted by CityBridge Community Church that gives students in grades 6-12 the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ by serving and loving the county where they live. Missions are not only overseas; we have the opportunity to be on mission right here every day. These trips will be intensely focused on evangelism & discipleship, service, leadership training, and learning about the community in Collin County.  |  Plano Experience 2023 High School will be June 4-8, and Middle School will be June 11-15. Registration Coming In Late Spring
