Our Youth ministry is a place for teenagers, both Junior High and Senior High, to connect with one another and continue to grow in their faith journey. We are dedicated to teens in 7th to 12th grades. We meet in the Youth Rooms on the second floor.

Connect

Our Sunday school is a safe place to ask questions, develop friendships, and pursue Christ through worship, biblical teaching, and service. Junior High (7th – 8th grades) & Senior High (9th – 12th grades) meet separately at 10am in the 2nd floor youth room from 10:00 am – 10:45 am

Credo Faith Formation for Older Youth provides a different kind of confirmation experience that reflects the greater life experience and thinking capacity of older youth. Made up of six units covering God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, Preventive Grace, Justifying Grace, and Sanctifying Grace, with emphasis on Baptism and Holy Communion. This class is for students in the 9th-12th grades.

We will meet every other week as a group for confirmation class, on the off weeks it is up to the confirmand and their sponsor to meet. You will need to meet together and complete home work on the off weeks. You can meet at church during the regular scheduled meeting time (just let Brooke know) or you may meet off site on your own schedule. Contact Brooke to learn more.
