YOUTH

Belonging. Believing. Becoming.

Our Youth Ministry is unique. Students ages 6th to 12th grade experience a God Centered Model for Spiritual Transformation. Through this, our students learn how to connect with God, one another, and within their own hearts. We strive to help each student find their place as we walk alongside them in their faith journey.
