Youth Ministries

Partnering with parents to raise disciples


We partner with parents to reach and raise students who passionately treasure God above all things, sacrificially love other believers and the lost, and joyfully engage in God’s mission.

We invite you to join us as we do this together.

Treasuring God Above All Things

Youth Group

Sunday Nights, 6:00-8:30 p.m.

For students in 6th-12th grade, we meet each Sunday for Games, Fellowship, Worship in song, a Message from the Word, and then meet in our Salt Groups. Leaders show up for prayer at 5:30, and students can stick around until 9pm at the latest.

Sunday School

Sunday Mornings, 9:00-9:50 a.m. (Fall Semester: Aug. 18 – Dec. 8)

Biblical & Theological instruction is vital to growing in Christ. So, we teach in the Middle School and High School classes as part of the Sunday School program.

  • Middle School: Lessons on Following Jesus with Bill Twigg (Room 107)
  • High School: The Gospel Project with Kyle Luck (Room 112)

And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. Matthew 22:37

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. John 6:35

Loving other believers & the lost

Salt Groups

Salt Groups are our “Scripture and Life Together” groups where relationships are formed, and the Word is opened together. They meet weekly during Youth Group and are a place where deeper relationships and accountability can be formed.

Each student who comes to Youth Group on Sunday Night is in a Salt Group, and those groups are the same week to week. Join us on Sunday to get plugged in!

Retreats & Camps

We do several retreats and camps throughout the year, including the Youth & Family Ski Retreat, Worldview Academy, and more. These are great avenues for growing in Christ together.

You shall love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:39

Engaging in God’s Mission

Everyday Missions

Jesus came into the world to seek and save the lost, and He invites us into His mission. Throughout the year, we plan intentional service and outreach opportunities that we do together, most of which are “everyday” type things we can do. 

Mission Trips

Periodically, there are opportunities where a dedicated time of service and work is faithful and effective for us to do. We take part in these opportunities because Jesus is worthy of our time and engergy, and many of us have seen the most deep and lasting results come through times where God is at work in us and through us. We’ve served for weeks at camps for adults with special needs, have done construction trips, and more.

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

Serve in the Youth Ministry

Want to serve as a leader in the Youth Ministry? We’re looking for capable, Jesus-loving leaders who want to invest in students. There are three main roles leaders currently fill in the Youth Ministry:

  • Youth Group Leaders – These are the support staff to Youth Group: connecting with students and helping the games, snack, and other items run smoothly.
  • Salt Group Leaders – Salt Group leaders take part in Youth Group and then meet with their Salt Groups afterward. They get a very personal role in the lives of a small group of students!
  • Sunday School Teachers / Facilitators – Middle School and High School Sunday School are two important parts of biblical and theological instruction for students in the church. Investing here is a great way to use teaching skills for God’s glory.

The first step towards getting on board is filling out this application. After that, you’ll need to meet with Kyle, and consent to a background check.
