Evening Worship: We come together with the church at 6:00-7:00 p.m. for worship in the sanctuary and to hear teaching from God’s Word.

Vittles: The Sr. High meet at a different youth’s home every week from 7:00-8:30. This is a time for students to fellowship and eat together before starting a busy week of school. The youth staff can help with transportation to and from Vittles. Please let us know if you would like a ride. (Summer Vittles does not meet every Sunday in the summer. Please see Upcoming Events, Announcements, or the bulletin for updates on Youth Activities.)

Monday – Thursday

The youth staff loves to get together with a group of students or individually for one on one time. This is a great time to build relationships and also to point students to the gospel. We meet with students before and after school on Mondays-Thursdays. We are available to pick them up and take them home. Let us know when you’d like to schedule a day to meet!

All 7th-12th graders are invited to Wednesday Night Youth Group from 5:30 to 7:30 pm to hang out, worship, and participate in small group studies. Students are welcome to stay for open gym until 8:00pm.   We will be studying the book of Exodus beginning January 2019.
