Youth Church is a youth-contextualized worship experience where youth lead each other (alongside adults) to worship Jesus. We have musical worship teams led by youth, youth who share their stories, sharing in groups, responses, and prayer. Each Sunday, we have Jesus-centered and youth-specific teaching that encourages us to grow deeper in friendship with God, love for our neighbors, and action in our world. We also have a lot of fun and friendship.
On the first of every month, our church works together to create an intentionally multigenerational sanctuary service for youth and adults. Here our youth get a picture of what it looks like to be part of our larger church. Youth get to learn and serve alongside adults on our hospitality team, worship team, kids ministry, and in other areas on these multigenerational services.
Our Groups are all about being with God, building spiritual friendships, and loving our neighbors as ourselves.
At Middle School Group, we encourage youth ages 6th-8th grade to be built up as followers of Jesus. We create opportunities for spiritual friendship through fun activities. We worship God and learn how to follow Jesus together. We share food, share life stories, reflect on Scripture, and pray for each other in small groups.
At High School Group, we invite youth aged 9th-12th grade to join Jesus on his mission of loving our neighbors as ourselves. High Schoolers worship God together, learn from Scripture what the message of God means for their world today, and spend time in groups to share, reflect, and pray for each other.
There are various Bible Studies and groups that meet throughout the week as well. Contact Drew Fajen, Pastor of Youth & Their Families
, for more information.
We hope for all our youth to have mentors they can rely on, confide in, trust, and follow Jesus with. Our mentors provide opportunities for our youth to meet one-on-one in our café or in smaller groups for deeper discipleship. Please reach out to the Pastor of Youth & Their Families to get connected with your youth's Youth Mentor.
