Wednesday Night Youth Group

6th–12th graders are invited to join us on Wednesday evenings during the school year and for special events throughout the year beginning September 15, 2021. 

Our youth group is divided into two programs: Middle School and High School. Both programs are designed to provide a safe and welcoming environment for teens to find biblical answers to what and why Christians believe. The highlight happens in small groups (by age and gender) where adult mentors lead a life-application discussion of the evening’s Bible-based message.

Here’s a taste of what it’s like…get more details below!

Middle School

6th–8th graders meet in the Community Room (Rm. 119) from 6:30–8:00 pm. Come early to relax, play games, and hang out!

  • 6:30 pm — Ice-breakers and large group topic introduction.
  • 6:45 pm — Large group teaching time
  • 7:20 pm – Small group discussion by age/gender
  • 8:00 pm — Pick-up time or optional hangout time until 9:00 pm. Middle school students can hang out in the Gym, the Kitchen, Room 119, and the lobby area outside Room 121.
  • 9:00 pm — Church building shuts down; all teens must be picked up.

High School

9th–12th graders meet in the Well (Rm. 110) from 7:00–8:30 pm. Come early to relax, play games, or do homework in the Well (Rm. 110) or the Gym!
