Youth Ministry

Don't let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your integrity. 1 Timothy 4:12


It’s an exciting new year for youth, a year that represent the culmination of a 5 year journey to closely examine our current youth programming updating its contents and aligning it to more accurately reflect current culture. Our youth group meets most Sunday evenings from 6pm-8pm during the program year.

What’s new to us is that we have embraced a two group model. We gather as a large group for a Pizza/dessert supper in the Celebration Center. After dinner God Squad meets in room LL06 on the bottom floor of the Education Bldg. and Senior High youth meet in the Youth Lounge on the third floor. Also new this year is a Youth Council, a February Break Mission Trip, more local service opportunities. But our biggest new thing is a new Youth Committee Structure and Ministry Teams.

It is the sincere hope of the Youth Ministry Implementation Team that this new structure will result in a more sustainable ministry. ► Click here to take a look at our new model.

Commissioning Class

Youth in Grades 9-12 who are interested in exploring the meaning of church membership for them meet for dinner, study, and discussion. Participants explore the Bible and its relationship to their individual faith journeys. The youth develop a personal faith statement, and, in late-spring, are given the opportunity to become members of the church.
