Youth Mission Statement


Manchester Youth is a loving, fun, and inclusive community that equips students to make faith and life decisions by helping them grow in their understanding and relationship with God and others.


What Manchester Youth Do

We offer a variety of different opportunities for ALL youth to connect, learn, play, and grow in their faith.


Middle School (Grade 6-8) Opportunities

Sunday Youth Group

Sunday Youth Group is our main gathering for youth (grades 6-12.) It currently looks a little different due to COVID-19, but we are still gathering for worship, games, and discussion. Our small groups are divided by age (6th grade, middle school, and high school) and they are led by dedicated adult volunteers who work hard to help our youth deepen their faith in God within the context of a supportive and loving environment. The Sunday Youth Group offers both in person and Zoom options.

Date: April 11- May 21
In Person: 4:00 p.m. or
Zoom Option: 7:00 p.m.
