We believe the Church is meant to be for everyone. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven (Mt. 19:14).”
All of our youth programs are designed to help the next generation come to Jesus and to make the Church more accessible to a younger audience. As people who are "concerned for souls," it is our hope that we can reach people in our community wherever they may be in life. Children and young adults of all ages are invited and encouraged to join in! Take a look below at the various programs, special events, and opportunities available for you to become involved. Also check out the upcoming events page for information about things going on right now!
Due to COVID-19 official youth group meetings are canceled. But we have been doing several events on Zoom and Facebook Live. When we can begin meeting again the youth group meets each week on Sunday during the Evening Service. The PM service begins at 6:30 with everyone in the sanctuary for a time of worship through singing, prayer, and communion, after which we break into small groups, with the adult groups meeting upstairs and the youth groups meeting downstairs. Currently we have a group for elementary students and one for jr./sr. high.
On occasion our youth group works together to lead portions of a special youth service. Usually these take place during the fifth Sunday evening services as they occur. The youth group is currently working on preparing a Christmas program that will be brought to you COVID style, more information will be available soon.
We offer Sunday School for all ages each Sunday morning from 9:30-10:30.
Current classes include:
Primary Elementary (Grades K-2)
Upper Elementary (Grades 3-5)
Junior High (Grades 6-8)
High School (Grades 9-12)
In addition there are also two classes for adults; the main class that uses the Standard Lesson Commentary and the leadership class is currently studying C.S. Lewis Mere Christianity.
All classes meet in the sanctuary at 9:30 for a time of worship through music and prayer together. When classes are dismissed to assemble, the traditional adult class remains in the sanctuary while the youth, young adult, and leadership classes meet in the lower level. Our greeters will be happy to help if you have any questions, or feel free to contact us in advance.
