WTL is the worship and fellowship program for students in 6th through 12th grade. The initials WTL stands for "the Way, the Truth, and the Life" and comes from John 14:6. Students gather "up the hill" at the Lockridge building at 4:45 then move into the Lockridge chapel for worship, music, and small group time in BOGS (Break Out Groups).
