Youth Ministry

Our Youth Ministry hopes to develop disciples of Christ so we want our 7th – 12th-grade students to love and follow Jesus in amazing, contagious, and adventurous ways. Read below for our gathering times, upcoming dates, and how to get involved.


Currently, we are meeting virtually until we are allowed to meet back in the church.
