Youth

Youth Group

Under the leadership of MaryEllen Barbieri, Director of Family Ministries, and the rest of the leadership team, the youth are challenged to live their lives as Ambassadors for Christ. A strong relationship with Jesus is essential to this endeavor so it is a priority to get to know Him more through study of the Word and learning to see Him in our lives every day.

Middle School Youth Fellowship is for grades 6-8 and the Senior High Youth Fellowship is for grades 9-12. Each group meets two Thursday nights per month.  We also have special events such as Lock-Ins, bowling  and service trips. 

 The Youth Leadership Team  challenges youth to live their lives fully for God by teaching them God’s Word.  By incorporating a combination of spiritual activities, community building activities, and service activities they help affirm that youth are a vital part of the body of Christ.

The goal of our Youth Ministry is to develop youth of character who have a good understanding of the values outlined in God’s Word, can withstand peer pressure when tempted to go against those values and be encouraging leaders for others.  We teach them how to worship, how to pray, and how to make sense of some scriptures which may seem dated and obsolete  in a modern world.

The Middle and High School Youth Fellowship groups meet twice per month within their own age group and for  special events throughout the year.
