We would like to invite you to join us for any of our times of worship, fellowship, study, and service. We look forward to the opportunity to get to know you and your family!

Youth Summer Calendar

Wednesday Bible Study
Bible Study has concluded for this current school year. We will return with a BANG on Sept 4, 2019!!
Mid-week Bible Study is a great time for students to experience a spiritual refresher as they gather with Christian friends for food, games, and Bible study. (6:00pm–Pizza and hang time, 6:15pm–Large group time, 6:30pm–Small group Bible Study–divided by age & gender, 8:00pm–Dismissal).
High school students can find it challenging to live out their faith in their daily lives. Accountability groups can help strengthen young Christians in the face of pressures,temptations, and compromises. A small group which share joys and struggles, while holding each other accountable to the group and to God for their faith walk can be especially beneficial during the teen years. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get plugged in to an Accountability Group.
Our Confirmation class for 2019 has just ended. We will begin registration for the 2019-2020 year at the end of August!
Confirmation class leads 7th grade students to a point of decision about becoming a Christian. The class offers an in-depth study of the foundational Bible teachings about the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Confirmation is a year-long journey that helps young people have a clear understanding of what it means to become a disciple of Jesus. The confirmation class meets Sunday mornings, 9:15-10:15 throughout the school year, and ends with a Confirmation Service held in May. Email Heather if you have any questions, email@example.com.
