Youth Group meetings are generally on Sundays from 1:00-3:00 p.m. – visit the church calendar for specific dates. Currently we meet at least once a month for outdoor activities, and once a month for outdoor or zoom discussions.
This is a safe space to explore all questions and get to know Jesus. All youth are welcome to come and openly share where you are today in your faith journey, and discover how what you believe affects your choices.
Another highlight of youth group is preparing and leading worship for Youth Sunday generally in the winter, and Youth Summer Re-cap in August. Youth Sunday theme and sermon is developed by the graduating seniors, with the entire service written by members of youth group. The Summer Re-cap highlights summer mission and conference experiences, along with youth providing the sermon and sharing new worship songs.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Who is Jesus? Why did He come to earth? How can I know Him?
We live in a world where there’s a lot of confusion about Jesus. Too often people want to shape Him and His message to fit their personal needs or agendas. So how can we know the truth? This study will deepen your understanding of Jesus and help you see Him less as an iconic figure and more as an intimate friend.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Youth Group Meeting Schedule For 6-12th graders and friends
