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.

Sunday Mornings (In the Youth Room at 9:40 a.m.)

High School (9th–12th grade)
The Thread: Students will discover the life-changing narrative of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Most importantly this series will show them how the thread of the Gospel is woven through every story.

Middle School (7th & 8th grade)
The Jesus Studies: A curriculum designed to cut through the confusion, teaching students a Christ-centered look at the major issues they deal with in their daily lives.

High School (9th–12th grade)
Dateable: Teens can protect their hearts, live with excitement, and enjoy relationships in a way that honors themselves and God. With Justin Lookadoo and Hayley DiMarco “telling it like it is,” teens will learn how to be dateable and how to evaluate the dateability of their latest crush. They’ll get some much needed perspective on sex, communication, and God.

Middle school (6th–8th grade)
The Zombie Apocalypse Survival Guide for Teenagers: This isn’t a normal book. It’s not even a normal zombie survival guide. It is a story of three teenagers enduring and surviving against all odds. This study will point to the Bible for wisdom about surviving the real world.
