Youth Ministries

                                    


How do I get connected?

Simple. Just show up to youth group, come to our Sunday morning Bible study, hit up the next youth event, or just give the youth pastor a call or drop him an email.

What is youth group?

Youth Group is our weekly program where teens gather to learn about Jesus Christ from the Bible.  Youth Group is a place to make friends and be a part of community. It's a safe place to ask questions and learn about God. It's also a ton a fun as we do crazy games, activities, and event led by our adult leaders.

What are some of the events you do?

Along with our weekly youth group program, our teens get to be a part of some pretty awesome events throughout the year. Here is an idea of some of the stuff we do throughout the year:
  • Fall Over[K]nighter - London Knights games followed by archery tag
  • Fall Retreat - Rend Collective Concert and Indoor Water Park
  • "How Can You Know" - Youth Conference answering questions we all ask
  • Christmas Party to Skyzone
  • Snow Camp - A weekend retreat up north
  • Annual Dodgeball Tournament
  • and so much more...

What will I learn?



At Youth Group we learn from the Bible, which is God's Word of absolute truth.
Currently we are in a series called "Peace Within." We are studying through the
book of Psalms to see how we can have peace with God, peace within, and be
peace-makers to the world around us.
