Youth

Our Vision

The vision of our youth programs is to assist youth to become deeply committed followers of Jesus Christ who love God, care for each other, and serve in the world.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to bring young people together in a life of faith, fellowship, and action and to address spiritual, emotional, and social needs unique to youth.  We create a safe space for our young people to gather and share their lives with each other and caring adult mentors.

Our Mission

We bring youth and adults together to build meaningful relationships with each other and with God.  Our ministry provides opportunity to encounter Christ and serve God through mission trips and service projects while growing better disciples of Christ.  Through worship, activities, and conversation, we explore our faith, grow in fellowship, and develop Christ-like lives
