To challenge and equip the Youth (7th-12th Grade students) for the development of godly character and biblical understanding, as they mature into adulthood. We provide a variety of opportunities for instruction, godly fellowship, and Christian service to seek to meet the need of every student – taking them from where they are and equipping them for a faithful response to Christ in all of life.
We are committed to working with parents to provide a God-centered ministry to students in 7th - 12th grade that combines: 1) expository teaching of the Bible, 2) proclaiming the Gospel, 3) practical Christian instruction in key areas facing teens, 4) shepherding care, 5) godly fellowship, 6) compassionate outreach.
Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. - Colossians 1:28
As students enter into the adult world, our youth ministry is designed to involve Christian Youth in 4 primary areas:
The youth gather each Sunday morning for Flock at 9:30am for a time of fellowship, worship, and instruction in the Scriptures and how to apply those truths to their everyday life. Primarily, we teach through a book of the Bible during each semester of the school year. During worship service, the youth join the rest of the church for corporate worship, prayer, and receiving instruction through expository preaching of the Word.

DGROUPS (discipleship groups) - 6:30pm-8:15pm
DGROUPS give students an opportunity to: (1) studying in smaller groups through deep topics with their peers (Groups: Jr High, Sr Girls & Sr High Guys) (2) spend time together in various fun activities... What a great way to cap off a Wednesday!

Though we have students that span over six grades (7th-12th), we teach using our own 4 year curriculum designed to Equip teens broadly in Christian doctrine and living. This 4-year sequence is purposeful, allowing students to get acquainted with books of the Bible and topics in the study in their early teenage years as they learn beside those that are older. Then in turn, they get the opportunity to think through those particular studies with a couple more years of growth at their disposal, as well as then helping lead the study with those that are younger.
