From 2:45 – 3:15, youth can arrive, check-in, and play the many games set up in the Youth Center and Old Fellowship Hall. Snacks are also available.
Worship takes place in the Youth Center. Worship is catered to the developmental needs of youth and incorporates humor, AV, and music led by our Youth Band.
Small Groups are at the forefront of everything we do in Youth Group. Middle School groups focus on understanding and utilize hands-on activities. High School groups focus on life application and encourage deeper conversations. The groups utilize a three year comprehensive curriculum designed to give them a strong foundation that withstands the test of young adulthood. Small groups are led by two Safe-Sanctuary certified adults who care deeply for their kids and receive regular training and input from the Director of Youth Ministry.
Other Helpful Information
All youth who arrive are greeted at the front door of the church by adults. They are given name tags and check in at the youth reception area.
All visitors are greeted warmly, asked for basic information, and given a goody bag. Parents are contacted by the director within the week.
When programming is over, youth are released to meet their parents. If youth wish to leave early, a parent must contact the director or small group leader.
Throughout the program, adults float to ensure safety and security for the youth in our care.
