All youth in 8th-12th grades, and our Middle Schoolers in 5th-7th grades, are invited to be a part of our Youth Ministry program.
We had our fall kickoff on Sunday, August 14, 2016, and are looking forward to a great year of learning, fun, and creating community.
This year’s 2016-2017 Youth Ministry program packet was distributed at the event, as well as paperwork needed to participate.
If you’d like to join us, it’s not too late.
