YOUTH MINISTRY - students in 6th-12th Grade
important: youth times are 5:00 to 7:30 for middle schoolers (6th-8th) and high schoolers (9th-12th)!
March 22nd—Colossians part 2
Colossians 1:24- 2:5
Paul explains that his current suffering won’t stop him from praising God or spreading the Gospel. And he encourages believers to embrace the truth that Christ is IN us.
March 29th—Colossians part 3
Just like the Colossian church we have to struggle against a culture that is not in alignment with the Gospel. We cannot try to confirm to the world nor should become elitist and proud of our “religious purity”.
April 5th—Colossians part 4
Colossians 3 and 4
How to live the “Resurrection Life”
In light of all that God has done for us, how are we to live? We should love people and we should especially practice this radical love at home with our families.
April 12th—Easter Sunday
We will not have Youth on Easter as we want to encourage students to serve and attend Easter services (8am, 9:45, 11:30) and spend the rest of the day celebrating our resurrected savior with their families!
We gather together every Sunday evening for food, fun, Biblical teaching, and friendship.

Our Mission: To provide an environment of community for teenagers that will help foster their spiritual growth.
How we do this: Our mission is accomplished in two ways. Primarily in our weekly youth meetings we provide a safe, engaging environment where students are given the building blocks for a strong authentic faith. And secondarily we host frequent events outside of church. We do three differnt types of events:
Outreach Events: These events provide an opportunity for students to invite their friends to fun activity. This gives new students a feel for “the church” without feeling overwhelmed in an unfamiliar place.
Spiritual Growth Events: These events happen in the winter and summer over a weekend or week-long camp. We get away from the business of life in order to focus on God and grow deeper in our faith. We use curriculum that challenges the students to grow spiritually, examine their beliefs, and grow closer to their peers.
Service Projects: These events are for students to live out their faith by serving the community. We volunteer regularly at Manna Foodbank, the ABCCM Veterans Quarters, and with River Link.
