Mission: “Impact Teens to Impact the World”

We offer a program for teens grades 5-12 who are committed to Christ and want to get their friends hooked up with Christ too.

The goal of this team is to worship God, explore His Word (the Bible), grow stronger roots in our faith, and plan our strategy for getting the word out to our friends and neighbors.

Every other week we practice what we preach by going into our communities and inviting our friends and neighbors.

YOUTH GROUP SCHEDULE: Sunday’s 5:00 – 6:30 pm, Ministry Center

To Teach and Disciple: We want to develop authentic Christ followers. (Matthew 28:19-20) Service: We are committed to serving each other as well as the community around us. (Galatians 5:13) Building Relationships Teen Extreme Outreach: We are committed to reaching out to share the love of God with other teens. (Mark 16:15) Being an Example: We as leaders are committed to being an example to our teens so that they can be an example in their communities. (1 Corinthians 11:1)
