Youth Ministry

Our mission is to encourage Christian growth as members of God’s team, both spiritually and socially.  The purpose of youth ministry and Christian education is to provide communities of belonging, through which youth can explore and affirm who they are as gifted people of God and actively live out their Christian faith.

During the year school year, we share fun and exciting lessons through our Wednesday night CORE programming.  We also try to involve ourselves in activities and service projects for our church and community.  We also continue to look for opportunities for youth to actively participate within our church and appreciate the ever present support of our church family.

The oldest two youth groups (Pursue and Impact) also gather together throughout the year for pure fun and fellowship.  As events are planned, details will be announced.  Please check the church calendar for upcoming Youth Events.

YOUTH GROUPS:

ENGAGE (5 years – 2nd grade)

By starting at a young age, we “engage” kids in the stories and lessons of the Bible; laying a strong foundation for their faith

CONNECT (3rd – 5th grade)

As children grow, we continue to reinforce Bible teachings & show how these lessons “connect” to our lives

PURSUE (6th – 8th grade)

During the middle school years, we focus on how to “pursue” our faith and keep it a priority in our lives, through Bible lessons and discussions

IMPACT (9th – 12th grade)

For our high school youth, we use Biblical lessons & discussions to provide opportunities to see the “impact” God has on us as individuals, but also on our family, friends and community
