"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.

Sunday Morning Bible Study
11:00 am Sunday mornings. Teens are dismissed during the service. We do not have a youth class on the first Sunday of each month to allow students to sit under the preaching of their lead pastor and to participate in communion.
For the past two years, we have been traveling through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. We currently find ourselves studying through the Exile and Return.
