Youth Group Mission Statement: Our goal is for all teens to feel welcome and able to explore their faith, and how it relates to the world around them, in a safe and open environment, while growing in community with each other, and reaching out to our church, community, nation, and world to be the hands and feet of Christ. ALL ARE WELCOME!  

Youth Group for grades 8-12 is a fellowship programs designed to allow youth to experience the transforming power of the Holy Spirit in an open and welcoming Christian community.
We provide our middle and high school youth with many opportunities for personal growth, Christian education, healthy and enjoyable social interaction, and active exploration and expression of Christian faith.

Meetings are held on Sunday evenings, 6:00-7:30 p.m. Programs include retreats, movie nights, game nights,  discussions, local service projects.

Youth are also welcome to participate in the other ministries of the church, including singing with a choir, playing in the bell choir, teaching Sunday School, greeting and ushering, and serving as a youth member of the Board of Deacons, to name just a few.

For more information about opportunities for youth, please contact the youth ministry committee via the church office (567-6287).
