Youth

Students from 6th-12th Grade

Welcome!

The mission of our Youth Group is to meet students where they are and help them take the next spiritual step. We’re dedicated to connecting students (6th - 12th grade) with God, with friends who want to head in the same direction, and with our leaders who are committed to modeling what it means to be a follower of Jesus.


During the school year, our Youth Group takes place from 7-8:30pm on Wednesday nights, on alternating weeks for the Junior High (6th-8th Graders) and Senior High (9th-12th Graders). Junior High meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month, and Senior High meets the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month. Typically, Youth Group includes games, worship, relevant teaching and small groups – where students can interact and discuss the lesson topic with others in the same grade. 


Every Sunday between services (from 9:50-10:45am) we meet for Sunday School sessions. These are studies designed to help students dig deeper into the Bible and learn how to study the Bible better for themselves. 6th-8th graders meet with Lisa Brown in their classroom downstairs, and 9th-12th graders meet Joe Schrader's office.


As youth leaders we’re convinced that living life God’s way is the most fulfilling, satisfying, ONLY way to go… and if you’re a student we want you to come to the same conclusion. Don’t miss out on how God wants to be involved in your life. Join up with us as we learn more about God’s plan for our lives together!
