Our youth ministry is a place of connection and acceptance made up of students from grades 6 through 12, adult volunteers, college mentors and staff.
We are a safe space where all students are welcomed, friendships develop, and change occurs. We provide a place for students to authentically be themselves while also walking alongside them as they discover new pieces of their identities.

Camps and Retreats
Camps and retreats are essential in youth ministry! They provide the opportunity to focus on building and strengthening relationships. Youth who attend and participate in retreats experience God in ways impossible to convey in a couple hours a week in a church building. Getting away from home and church allows time for the youth to simply be together. Experiencing different environments and new challenges along with spending an extended time with their peers will help to create unique memories, which are vital parts of forming more authentic and long-lasting friendships.

We also do a number of other special events throughout the year that keep us growing together while having fun. We have pumpkin carving in October, a Christmas party in December, messy games day in the summer, and a variety of Fun First Sundays. In the summer we gather for Wednesday Lunches somewhere in town and organize a variety of outings. This past summer we went to Carowinds and had a pool party.
