Welcome

Our youth ministry program is an inclusive faith community that connects, engages and equips youth to discover and live out the gospel of Jesus Christ.

From our weekly Youth Gatherings and fellowship times to special events, camp experiences and mission trips, we seek to glorify God and support middle and high schoolers in all aspects of life. Our programs and events are a means to the end of living out the following core values (I.D.R.E.A.M.):

  • Inclusion: Guided by God’s Spirit, we welcome all youth and families, thankful for their unique identities and gifts, as we seek to provide an experience of belonging for each individual.
  • Discipleship: We cultivate an inquisitive community who journey together as youth grow, explore and are transformed by the love of God revealed in Jesus.

    Responsibility: We build meaningful relationships that promote accountability so that through us, God can create a community that is greater than any one of us by ourselves.
  • Engagement: We foster friendship, fellowship and fun to create joy-filled, relevant and transformative faith experiences.
  • Affirmation: We approach everyone, including ourselves, with gentleness and grace so that all will know they are celebrated, loved and valued as children of God.
  • Mission: We empower youth to share their gifts as they work for justice, freedom and peace in the community around us and the world at large.

Upcoming Events

Youth Ministry special events are designed to complement youth worship, formation and fellowship opportunities. Gathering together outside of the normal patterns of church life to celebrate and serve alongside one another empowers youth to build new relationships, try new things and effect positive change in our community.

Sunday Evening Fellowship

The Sunday Evening Fellowship is similar to what churches often call “Youth Group.” It provides a wonderful opportunity for youth to connect and build relationships with one another and with our committed staff & volunteer team.

StudentServe Leadership Team

Our mid-week opportunity for high school students (grades 9-12) provides a safe space for youth to connect with friends and take an active role in the life of the youth ministry.

Summer Experiences

From serving others on mission trips to celebrating life and building relationships at Camp Kirkwood, our summer experiences provide youth and families with opportunities to step out of their comfort zones and “dive deep” into their faith. At camp, we cultivate an inquisitive community who journey together as youth grow, explore and are transformed by the love of God revealed in Jesus. On mission trips, we seek to empower youth and families to share their gifts as they work for justice, freedom and peace in God’s world.
