"Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." Matthew 4:19
Our Youth Ministry exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to the glory of God the Father.
A disciple, as defined by Jesus in Matthew 4:19, is one who (1) knows and follows Jesus, (2) is being changed by Jesus, and (3) is committed to the mission of Jesus.
The goal of every Christian is Christ-like maturity evidenced by a life that is bearing fruit in others. Our goal in youth ministry is to begin this process with students, or pick them up wherever they are in their faith-journey, and push them forward in spiritual growth.
We want to WIN teenagers to Christ, we want to BUILD teenagers in Christ, and we want to SEND teenagers for Christ.
Join our mission. You belong here.
Youth Group is our weekly program where teens gather to learn about Jesus Christ from the Bible. It's a place to make friends and be a part of a community. It's a safe place to ask questions, grow and serve. It's also a place to have a lot of fun.
No cost or pre-registration necessary, just show up and get involved.

Bible Reading Plans
We want every teenager to spend daily, quality time reading God's word; developing the skills of personal Bible study. To that end, we encourage you to use this year-long Bible reading plan which is supplemented with creative videos explaining the context of each book of the Bible. Download the READ SCRIPTURE app in the app store, or print out the reading plan right here. Follow the links below. You can also visit The Bible Project website for the latest topical videos or find the entire library on Youtube.
