The Youth Ministry meets at 7:00 p.m. on the first Tuesday of every month and is made up of youth and adults who work in partnership to develop and implement a balanced youth program in the areas of worship, service, study, fellowship, and mission for youth in Middle School (6th-8th grades), High School (9th-12th grades) and college. If you’re interested in serving on this ministry, please indicate your interest under “Youth Ministry” on your Time & Talents Covenant.

Serve as a Youth Advisor

Advisors assist the Youth Director by facilitating break out sessions during Youth Group on Sunday evenings or other grade specific small group gatherings. We ask our advisors to be open and compassionate to all youth on their journey of discovery and faith. Advisors can be young adults in the church, parents or other caring adults. Advisors also help with other events such as lock-ins and retreats. While it is necessary to attend most events, there is no expectation to attend it all.
