Programs and Activities

Response to COVID 19

We are meeting on Zoom Sundays at 6 PM for our normal youth night activities! We will join together for some worship, short devotion and then split up into our small groups    

We are doing Zoom hang outs Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6 PM, these will be different each week. Some weeks might just be chatting, some will be game nights, others might be movie nights.

Email Janessa for the Zoom meeting IDs and links!

We are also playing PW Youth Quarantine Bingo, which I have attached for you all! 


We will resume our regular schedule when social distancing is over.


Sunday Not School is a continuous class that meets every Sunday morning from 9:30-10:30 a.m. throughout the year. This is a time where students go deeper into scripture and learn more about how to apply the bible to their every day life! Classes are divided into grades 6-8 and 9-12. 


Youth Night meets on Sundays from 6-8 p.m. in the Student Center. This is a fun, high energy night where we build community while learning about Jesus! We play games in our gym, worship through song, hear an age appropriate message, then break up into small groups by gender and grade! For Youth Night please enter through the doors in south parking lot (the parking lot closest to Prairie View Rd!)


Confirmation is both foundational & formational for a student’s faith journey. It provides deep knowledge of the Christian faith that opens up a new way of understanding. In addition, it gives the student an opportunity to own faith unlike ever before. Confirmation classes run from mid-September through the beginning of March. Classes are offered on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30 a.m. and are open to students 8th grade and up.
