Youth Ministry

Our Youth ministry, which covers 7th-12th grade, is led by Pastor Danny Brown.  We base our ministry on a deep and abiding belief that God calls students to be spiritual leaders. Our approach to student ministry is to meet kids where they are and help them on their journey from being lost to being found, to being without purpose to being purpose-filled, and from feeling insignificant to finding their significance in a relationship with Christ.

What to Expect…

We make sure wherever a student is in his or her life, whether they feel on top of the world or lower than the ground, they have a place to go and feel welcomed. We then help them grow more and more in the Lord through discipleship, small groups, special classes, and by providing opportunities for them to make a difference in other’s lives through our YES Team program. Our goal and hope for each student who graduates from the youth group is that they will not only have a strong understanding of who God is, but also be ready to defend their faith and share it with others.

Yes Team

YES Team, short for Youth Equipped to Serve, is a team that is made up of our students who are strongest in their faith.   They play major leadership roles in our ministry programs such as VBS, Mission VBS, and our five day long Kid’s Camp during the Summer. What makes this program unique is that every student who wishes to join the YES team must go through extensive training that not only gives students the proper skills and knowledge to become student leaders, but also helps them to grow closer to Christ and learn to know Him on a deeper level.

Young Life

Young Life is all about meeting kids where they are. We go to the schools and connect with kids, build relationships, and introduce them to Jesus. All in a fun, engaging, and life-changing way.

Sunday Morning Small Groups
(SMSG)

Looking for a deepening in your understanding of the Bible?
Wanting to know how God’s truth fits into your daily life?
Hoping to find other committed Christians to encourage, help, and challenge you?

Then SMSG is for you!

Our Sunday School and Small Group ministry is on hiatus during the COVID-19 crisis. We’ll update this page when our schedule is back on track.

ReFUEL

Our mid-week Youth Group is called “ReFUEL” because it’s a place where kids can come and get filled up and encouraged as they head into the last part of the week.

A great place to get introduced to “church” without any of the awkwardness that sometimes comes with Sunday Morning.

Challenging Talks; Caring Adults; Fun; Friends; and Food!

Disciple4Life

Both students and their parents need to have a better understanding of God’s purpose for their lives and how they can experience Him every day. There is a need for greater spiritual formation in the lives of students in our church.

To this end, our Student Ministry Leaders have created an intentional ministry of discipleship and mentoring. Students who are intent on growing in their faith will find several opportunities to connect with other youth and caring adults that will invest in their lives and help them on their journey to spiritual maturity.

Living With Teenagers

Living with teenagers is not for the faint of heart!
This ministry is dedicated to those brave souls who embrace this challenge head-on and recognize the value of having others in their corner.

Mission Adventures Camp July 11-16, 2021

It’s not your average youth camp experience. We’re going to dive into missional living!

Mission Adventures is a week-long missions camp for youth groups located in Salem, Oregon. 

Mission Adventures will give our youth group the training, opportunity, and challenge we need to engage our faith and move from simply believing Jesus to proclaiming Jesus! Times of teaching, prayer, worship, outreach, and of course, FUN for our youth group are all included! We will go home equipped and encouraged for any opportunity to walk out their faith – a conversation with a stranger in line at the store, a chance to give a quick message about Jesus to a group, or a conversation with a friend or classmate.
