Youth Group

We’re back! Join us on Sundays for Youth Group from 6 pm – 8pm for fun, community, accountability, and worship as we sing to God and hear from His Word.

Below are the guidelines we want everyone to adhere to and a mandatory permission slip to bring with you on your first night back.

Gathering & Training

The Youth Sunday School program is designed to help students grow in their walk with Christ and prepare them to live out their faith in the world. Topics like systematic theology, apologetics and how to study Scripture are covered.

The first part of Youth Group allows students to build relationships with one another and the adult leaders through games in the Activity Center or just hanging out and talking in the youth room.

The Youth Band then leads the teens in a time of Christ-centered worship followed by the message. Our method is to walk verse by verse through a book of the Bible applying God’s truth in those passages to our teens.

The evening closes with students breaking into their age/gender specific small groups. Each small group is led by a youth leader and provides the students with opportunities for accountability, to discuss the message and pray for one another.

Girls Quest is a home-grown ministry for middle and high school girls. In an atmosphere of fun and fellowship, our focus is discipleship, Bible study, prayer and Christian service. The goal of this ministry is to encourage and equip our girls to stand firm in their faith in today’s culture and to grow into Godly women.

It is our desire that each girl will grow and develop a deep, personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We accomplish this through a variety of means including Bible study, mentoring and personal testimonies of women from the church. We also do several service projects throughout the year, learn different hobbies and have some fun with themed parties. Join us!

The name “Journeymen” reflects the stage of life our young men are in where they are no longer boys but are not yet independent men. Journeymen is designed to challenge young men to embrace their God-given gender and all that it implies for their life. We seek to equip them through dialogue about and teaching to live out the gospel in their manhood in a culture that tells them there is no such thing as gender distinction. Whether God is calling our young men to be single, or be husbands and fathers, we want each of them to know what God’s Word requires of them and to the power in the gospel available to them to live it out.
