Youth Ministry

Adolescence can be one of the most challenging periods in life as young people seek to establish who they are and who they will be as adults. We believe the most important thing for adolescents today is to develop a relationship with God and develop a faith that they will not graduate from when they graduate from high school. Our Youth Ministry is committed to creating an environment of love, acceptance and to challenge each individual to make a decision to follow Christ. If you are looking for community, have questions, or are looking for a family of believers to worship with, we would love to meet you!

Our youth ministry activities are for students in grades 7-12

If you have not already submitted one for this year, you will also need a medical release form. Those are also available on the youth bulletin board.
Class happenings: Last week’s Wednesday night conversation centered around some of the cultural changes in adolescents that coincide with smartphones and social media trends. That conversation will continue this week and next. It is an important one to be in on!
We will be continuing our “Bible Mania” series this Sunday! We have playing a gameshow-style game to help reenforce the things we have been learning about the Bible, and we will be playing it again this Sunday!
