Programs and Activities

Youth Night is the place to be for all students in grades 6-12! We play games together, listen to a youth appropriate sermon together, and then head to small groups that are based on gender and grade level. Small groups are our favorite part of youth group! It’s a place students can ask questions about faith, connect with other students, and adults that care about them! No prior knowledge of the bible is needed to join us, we are discovering faith together! We can’t wait to see you! 

Please email Janessa, Director of Student Ministries, for the zoom info!
