Youth Group
Youth Group is our social ministry for middle school and high school youth. The mission of the group is to provide a positive and encouraging environment where students in 6th-12th grades feel welcome.

Youth Group Night is a spiritual gathering for middle school and high school students. It's a time and place where teens can come together to play games, socialize, discuss, reflect, and share their faith and connection with Christ. 

The Youth group has no fixed curriculum and is open to the ideas and interests of its members. It is a place where everyone's suggestions are valid and valued to create a youth group that is fun and exciting!


Youth Group meets on Sundays from 4:00-6:00 PM

Youth Mission Trip - Statement of Purpose


" Youth leave what is familiar to grow in sensitivity, gratitude, and confidence as Christians as they become the hands and feet of God, living purposeful service through fostering relationships with each other, our community, and the world."

Youth Water Well Project

As part of the 2020 Mission Trip we are is sponsoring a water well project in Honduras for a community currently without a sustainable clean water supply The cost of construction will be underwritten by our church through fundraisers, events and contributions from the community. We are partnering with the Living Water International on this project.


Living Water is a faith based charity that is committed to provide sustainable water wells in places around the world who do not currently have access to clean water. Pairing health education with the drilling of the well helps to ensure the life of the well and the success of the community. This organization was founded in 1990 and has completed over 20,000 community water projects in 27 developing countries. For more info on their mission and organization:
