  • We understand the needs of our youth are different from children and adults and created programs specific to those in 6th through 12th grade.
  • We strive to create an inclusive setting, where questions can be asked, topics can be discussed, and stories can be shared.
  • Youth learn leadership skills, group participation, and inclusivity by attending our programs, and grow in their understanding of God and the world around them.

Youth Group Meetings

  • This is held four times a year.  During the meeting teens plan mission trips, fundraising events, future retreats, and recreational activities.
