Investing in the next generation.

We are constantly seeking new and creative ways to inspire students to have a more sincere faith in God, a fuller understanding of the hope they have in Christ, and a deeper comprehension of Jesus’ love. We have a deep desire to instill the truth of Gods word into the hearts and minds of our students; that it would bring about authentic life transformation.

Our hope is that our students would become passionate followers of Christ who would reproduce themselves in their friends, their families and their world.


Sunday Mornings

Teen Sunday Small Groups

Small Groups are offered on the 2nd and 4th Sundays (with a few exceptions) at 10:45am to promote outreach and relationship.

Students in grades 6-12 meet in the Youth Room, watch a sermon discussion video as a large group and then split into their respective small groups with adult mentors. Those in grades 9-12 travel off campus (once a month) to various local restaurants for breakfast while teens in grades 6-8 remain on the church campus. (Please refer to the Teen Sunday Morning Schedule below)

Big Church Sundays

BIG Church Sundays will be on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. We will have a designated “youth section” for all who want to sit with us.

As a youth staff we are passionate about teaching our students that we are part of the larger Body of Christ. We want students to rub shoulders with all generations and understand what church is all about. Therefore, on the first and third Sunday of every month (with a few exceptions), we have intentionally scheduled NO SUNDAY SCHOOL, so that your teenagers can participate in big church with their families and the church at large.

Sunday Morning Schedule

Youth Group

We purpose to create a healthy, safe environment for our students to interact and grow.
