Youth Ministry

Our ministry to youth provides a safe, caring and supportive environment where young people (grades 6–12) are encouraged to develop and nurture a Christ-centered life through service, fellowship, education, worship, and recreation.

It is our goal to teach youth how to think, not what to think and give them the tools to connect with God and understand the world using concepts such as the Wesley Quadrilateral (Scripture, Reason, Experience, and Tradition).

We also strive to offer a balance of activities to help students Know God, Love Unconditionally, and Affirm All and apply the concepts of “Sticky Faith” so that their spiritual journey continues beyond graduation from high school and our programs. Engaging families and offering intergenerational experiences help support these goals. We continue to thrive with the incredible dedication of parent and adult volunteers as well as strong youth commitment.

Wherever, whoever, or whenever you are in your faith journey… you are welcome here!

“Thanks for all you do to offer such an amazing program for the kids.
We are so grateful to be part of this youth group.”
