Our youth ministry exists to glorify God through community, Bible study, worship, and service. We do this through weekly Bible study and fellowship, mission trips, retreats, and service projects. We strive to be a part of the life of the church and fulfill its mission to glorify God and make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
