Youth Ministry

Vision Statement

We envision students seeing Christ as the answer, getting an opportunity to know him better through worship, small groups, and activities.  Students are to love God and each other as Christ has loved us, and to impact those around them with His love.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to reach out to 6th-12th grade students providing a place of fellowship and growth where we can connect with God, with each other, and the community.
