Welcome to the Youth Group!

We are excited to meet you, and we pray you find this to be your church home!

Our youth ministry focuses on outreach, discipleship, mission, worship, and leadership. We offer a wide range of activities from fun retreats to mission projects, and large group events to small group discipleship studies. Regular groups meet from September through May, and there’s special programming during the summer.

All persons serving with children and youth have completed Safe Sanctuaries Policy Training and successfully passed a background check.
