Come to love and be loved.

Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Our youth ministry plays a key role in that mission as a Christ-centered community of youth and adults committed to developing disciples of Jesus Christ through study, worship, and mission.

We lead a variety of activities on Sundays, Wednesdays and other times to foster growth and community in Christian discipleship. Until it is safe to meet in person at church, all programming for students in grades 7 through 12 will follow our church’s social distance guidelines. Please check back soon for more updates about the 2020-2021 year.
