Youth Ministries

It is our goal to help each young person grow in their relationship with God.

We believe that every part of the body of Christ is valuable, and we are grateful for the ministry of our youth among us. These are crucial years when young people are beginning to formulate their own thoughts and beliefs and we desire our youth to fully embrace God’s call on their lives to be disciple-makers. It is not the role of the Church to replace or step-in for parents but it is to equip and walk alongside them as they raise our youth up in the Lord.

 

For this reason, our youth ministries are designed for our youth to thrive within our five core commitments:

  • We make disciples of all peoples.

  • God’s word is enough.

  • The gospel changes everything

  • The Spirit works actively today.

  • We need each other.  

 

Please join us for a time of fun, worship, and serious study of the Word of God.

​Bible Study

  • We have weekly youth Sunday School classes with age-appropriate teaching for children and teenagers

  • The youth group is for teenagers and meets on Sunday evenings at 5:00 pm. We play games and study the Word. Our studies exalt Christ in a way to help teens grow a deep reverence and understanding of who God is and why we're here. 

  • The youth group also meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30 pm. We play games, eat food, and study the Bible. 

 

Activities

  • We offer activities that are designed for teens to interact with each other socially, but our main goal is to help them deepen their understanding of the Bible and grow in their love for Jesus. We aim to teach our teens the that Gospel changes everything, including their time together. We want to model gospel-encouraged fun and laughter.

  • We have several activities planned throughout the year. Visit our church events calendar to find upcoming youth events.

  • Youth After Church (YAC) is monthly meetings for teens held on the fourth Sunday of each month. YAC is after the Sunday evening service from 7:00-8:30 pm. There are food and games for the teens.
