Our Junior High and High School ministry, grades 7th – 12th, engages students through helping them grow in the knowledge and understanding of their faith, Bible, and spiritual identity in Jesus Christ. This is accomplished through prayerfully training servants in the area of ministry in which they serve, and encouraging their spiritual and personal development. Inviting youth into God’s family is one of our foremost top priorities. We do this by fostering relationships of accountability through transparency, trust, mentoring and biblical guidance, which create safe communities where the path of sanctification can be practiced and modeled in the lives of young people.
Young Christ Nation meets every 1st, 3rd, and 4th Sunday. Youth are released during service, immediately following the Praise & Worship period. At the 9:00 am service, they meet in our Library (East Entrance). At the 11:00 am service, they meet in our Lecture Hall next to the East Entrance. If needed, an attendant at the Welcome Desk in the Main Foyer will gladly escort your teen(s) to Youth Church.
