Our Mission

How We Do This

We engage our youth in intellectual discussions that relate to real life so each individual can identify and connect to his or her faith. Our Youth Ministry is structured into two age groups:

Middle school encompasses 5th through 7th grade, and 8th grade and up are combined into a high school level learning approach. We also provide confirmation courses starting at the 6th grade level.

We offer various ways for youth to interact outside of Sunday classes and services. Our goal is to cultivate an active youth group where kids and families feel safe, have fun, study the bible and connect with each other while developing a strong faith.
