Youth Ministry!

We would love to see you at one of our upcoming events! One of our popular monthly events is youth group... these are stress-free nights of fun games, food, prayer and fellowship for teens. Youth groups typically fall on the first Sunday of the month; for more details, please see the calendar below. 


There are also other opportunities to grow in your faith, including attending retreats, service projects, and serving as a peer minister. All are welcome, introverts too! If you have any questions, please contact Evan in the youth ministry office.

Rooted and Built up in Him

Last year our theme was about finding faith in difficult times, and we looked at examples in Scripture that point us to how we should respond when challenges come our way. 


This year, our theme is inspired by Colossians 2:6-7: "As therefore you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so live in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving." 


Join us for discussion and fun as we dig into our faith!
