Summer Youth & Family Events

Youth Sunday School

The Christian Education Hour is 9:45-10:45am on most Sundays. There is a class for sixth/seventh graders that meets in the Junior High room and a Confirmation Class for 8th/9th graders that meets in the Confirmation Room. The high school class meets in the high school room. All of these classes are located in the basement (Fellowship Hall). Just look for the signs by the doors to find these rooms.

Youth Group

We believe that teens need relationships with peers and adults who listen to them, love them, and want to help them get to know and love God.

We believe that well-rounded youth ministry starts with dedicated teachers and leaders for Sunday School and Youth Group but culminates with getting the youth involved in leadership positions all around the church, giving them an opportunity to live out and share with others all the gifts and talents God has given them.

What are you looking for?

A way to help others? Friendship? Fun? Laughter? A knowledge or hunger for God? Join us!

Mission Trip

Sr. High Youth Group (9-12): We offer our help in communities all over the United States. We try to create fun and educational opportunities to raise money so the trip is affordable for everyone who wants to attend. Then we spend one week during summer serving others and serving God.

The 2019 summer Mission Trip will be to serve the Appalacia Service Project. Thank you to those who generously gave at the Easter Fundraising Brunch! Your money allows us to bring every kid who would like to go! Thank you! - Conner Morton (Director of  Youth)
