Christian Formation for Youth

A Note From Our Youth Minister:

Youth are our future.  As a church, when a child is baptized we are asked as a congregation, “Will you who witness these vows do all in your power to support these children in their life in Christ?”  The answer is always a resounding “WE WILL!”  We take this vow seriously.  If church is a family, children and youth are a vital part of our Christian community.  “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” – Matthew 19:14   

I would like to personally invite any and all youth, who are exploring the possibility of faith, to join us and experience what God has to offer in your life.

Check out our NEW Youth and Children’s Programs website!


Our Youth Ministry program is designed for both junior and senior high students in grades 6-12.

In our programs, we strive for our youth to build personal relationships with Christ and with each other in a Christian environment through fun, fellowship, and service. Our programs also provide a safe harbor for Christian fellowship between both youth and adult members of the congregation. We nurture spiritual development by keeping kids in touch with Christ and by developing outreach and mission opportunities.
