Weekly Youth Group Meeting

7:00 PM to 8:45 PM
6th Grade
12th Grade

At our youth ministry, our mission is to cultivate a vibrant Christ-centered community, specially tailored for our middle school and high school students. In a world where countless voices try to define our students' identities, our ministry strives to be a place where they can discover Christ-centered friendships, mentorship, pastoral care, community and, most important, who they are in Christ. We firmly believe that such a community is vital because it provides...

  • Challenges us to be more like Jesus (Heb 10:24-25)
  • Supports/encourages each other (Gal 6:2)
  • Helps us learn about and use our gifts (Rom 12:4-8)
  • Builds up our faith (Jam 5:13-16 & 19-20)
  • It is fun (Ps 133:1)
  • Fosters love (Col 3:13-14)
  • Helps us grow (1 Cor 14:26)
  • And much more

What to expect at Youth Group

  • 7:00-7:30Connection Time

    Sometimes the best conversations are had when you are just sitting on a couch, playing a game of uno, playing a video game, or having a snack. Each week we build in connection time which is “free time” where our students can play any of our games, hang on our couches, or play a card game. This allows our students to build relationships with each other. It also gives our leaders a great opportunity to build connections with our students and trying to engage in meaningful conversation.
  • 7:30-8:00Game Time

    While games may just seem like we are just having a good time messing around but it is much more than that. The purpose of these games is twofold. They are meant to build connections between students and tear down walls that students may have. When we have fun together it helps build trust and repour which in return helps us share the Gospel. And games are fun!
  • 8:00-8:15 Lesson

    Each week we will have a 10–15-minute lesson. Our lesson will be relevant, creative, and Bible centered. Our goal is each student where they are and share Biblical truths that transform lives.
  • 8:15-8:45Life Groups

    The goal of our life group’s is to be able to do life together. This isn’t just a small group where we discuss the message and ask a few questions. Instead, we want these groups to encourage, pray, listen, point back to God, discuss difficult topics, and what ever else life throws at us. Life groups move the focus from answering a question to building a Christ centered community.
