“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” —Jeremiah 29:11

Our youth ministry is meant for those in 6th grade and higher. It is focused on providing a welcoming community for students where they can develop in their relationship with God and with each other. This is done through sound Biblical teaching presented in a way that young people can apply immediately to their lives. We seek to nurture the spiritual lives of students through Bible study, discipleship, fellowship, and worship.

Youth ministry is an active, relational endeavor. We like to hang out together as often as possible. Times of Bible study are interspersed with games, laughter, and lots of food. But, we don’t just hang out and feed our spirits and bodies. Our youth ministry is concerned about the world around us. Through mission projects and special events, our students are the hands and feet of Christ to a world in need.
