Our Youth Ministry exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to the glory of God the Father. When Jesus called his disciples in Matthew 4:19, he said "follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." As defined by our Lord Himself, a disciple 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.
The goal of our Youth Ministry is to begin this process with students, or pick them up wherever they are on their faith-journey, and push them forward in spiritual growth. We partner with mom and dad to raise a new generation of passionate, bravehearted, followers of Christ.
We want to win teenagers to Christ, build teenagers in Christ, and send teenagers for Christ.
Join our mission. You belong here.
Sunday morning bible study
Join us for church on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am. About half-way through the service, before the sermon, youth grade 6-12 will be dismissed for their own Bible Study Class in the youth room. On the first Sunday of each month, the youth remain in church for the whole to hear the sermon and partake in communion.
We are using The Gospel Project Curriculum to study through the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation. We currently find ourselves studying through the Gospels.
For students grade 9-12. We meet here at the church on Sunday nights from 6:30-8:30 pm. Youth Group begins in September and runs through till the end of May.

Teen Day Camp is a 4, full-day, camp for Jr high students entering grade 6-8. It runs on the last week of July every year and registration is in April. It is a unique camp experience that also provides leadership development for our high school students.
Short-term missions trips give students months of biblical training followed by a cross-cultural experience of serving Christ globally. Everything they learn then gets applied to living on mission for Christ daily; right here, right now, locally. You can find information about our latest trip on our Youth Missions page.
