Sunday Night Youth Group

Meets on the1st and 3rd Sunday each month.

5 - 7 PM

Watch the Youth Newsletter for Meeting Details and Locations

Join us for dinner, games, fellowship, learning! Don't forget to bring a small donation for dinner.

Each year our youth ministry selects a theme that our entire year's worth of study and learning is focused on!

We are excited to announce the theme for 2020-2021 is Thriving Light!

Thriving Light centers around the scripture verse John 1:5.

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it."

As we enter into this new season of life, after all that we have been through, we believe that it is important that we remember that we not only have a light in Jesus Christ, but that we too can be that light in the world.

Youth Creative Worship

Join us for Creative Worship! Our goal is to give our kids a place to encourage the Body of Christ with their creative gifts in many different ways. We use writing, music, and art of different types to engage their God-given talent. Youth meet in the Chapel, the first and third Sunday afternoons of every month from 4:00-5:00. And are plugged into the community to sing, share, and play in different ways during the year. Children meet during Salt and Light on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:15. And are using all their creative muscles! Sometimes that's art. A lot of times there's music.
