6th–12th graders are invited to join us on Wednesday evenings during the school year and for special events throughout the year.

Our youth group is divided into two programs: Middle School (6:30–8:00 pm) and High School (7:00–8:30 pm). Both programs are designed to help teens find biblical answers to what and why Christians believe, featuring small groups where adult mentors lead a life-application discussion of the evening’s Bible-based message. Scroll down for details!
