This ministry is open to all students between 7th and 12th grade. We offer a variety of opportunities for you to be involved in such as weekly services on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m., our Sunday morning life group at 9:30, Fine Arts (to develop the talents and abilities God has blessed you with), and a ton of other events, retreats, and trips that happen throughout the year. Everything that goes on in this ministry is centered around the idea of building relationships with one another, so that we can more effectively build up, train, prepare, equip, and raise up a generation of young people that are chosen by God to do His work and bring Him glory.
Come out and join us every Sunday from 10:30 - 12:00. This is a great time of growing together and growing closer to God. After joining with the adults in the main sanctuary for worship, all of the youth go to the NEXT room where we have the rest our of youth service. It is our prayer that you enjoy your time with us as you encounter a God that desires to be so personal with you that you can't help but be impacted by Him.
This part of our ministry is geared towards helping students discover the talents and abilities God has blessed them with. As the students recognize these areas, we then have the wonderful opportunity to help them develop these gifts and use them for Him. As part of this fine arts program, the students will have the chance to compete at the sectional level of competition held in February each year. If the students advance past that level they move on to the district level of competition held over Easter weekend. If the students advance past this level they then participate at the National Fine Arts Festival held at the beginning of August. This is a great program that gives the students the chance to grow in these areas and helps them understand how they can use them them for His glory. If you are interested in being in Fine Arts, we start with our new groups and teams in October each year.
Throughout the year we have a variety of different events that range from one-day activities, to week-long camps or retreats. Our goal is to provide as many opportunities as possible to build relationships and do life together. As we grow in our relationships, we are challenged to encourage and support each other in our pursuit of Christ. Every time we are together is one more opportunity to grow closer to each other and more importantly closer to Him. We hope that you can join us for some of these amazing events we have coming up.
