Our ministry to youth provides a safe, caring and supportive environment where young people (grades 7–12) are encouraged to develop and nurture a Christ-centered life through worship, mission, education, fellowship, service, and recreation.
We continue to thrive with the incredible dedication of parent and adult volunteers as well as strong youth commitment. We serve youth in grades 7-12 who participate in Sunday morning and evening programs. It is not our goal to teach youth what to think, but to teach them how to think and give them the tools to connect with God and understand the world using concepts such as the Wesley Quadrilateral. We also strive to offer a balance of activities to help students Know God, Love Others, and Serve the World 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.
Wherever, whoever, or whenever you are in your faith journey…
you are welcome here!
