Manchester 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.

Sunday Squad

Youth (6th - 12th grade) are invited to join in the Youth Center at 9 and 11a on Sunday mornings. Youth will eat breakfast snacks, play games, and listen to/discuss a modified version of the pastor's sermon.

Worship Kits

Youth Worship Kits are available at both services in the lobby on Sunday mornings. Kits include materials to help youth better understand the service components, the sermon, stay focused, and stay engaged. They also include a family discussion guide that parents can use to continue the conversation at home.
