Youth

Our mission is to inspire students to follow Jesus and fearlessly change the world. We exist to walk alongside Junior High and High School students as they develop their own authentic faith and equip them to share it with their communities.


Join us on the weekend!

Junior High

Sundays, 10a & 11:30a
Youth Room

Join us for our Junior High Service! You will walk away with unforgettable memories, new friends, and grow deeper in your relationship with Jesus! No RSVP’s are required for weekend services, just show up!

High School

Sundays, 8:30, 10 & 11:30a
Worship Center

High School students attend main service together with their friends or family. We believe that students are the church of today & that we look more like the family of God when multiple generations gather together. We can’t wait to see you in the Worship center.

Get Connected

We believe that faith is meant to be lived out in community & that Life Groups are the best place to do this! This is a space for students to connect, feel known, and grow together while deepening their relationship with Jesus.

We need your help! 

We are looking for people who love and follow Jesus… and like teenagers! You don’t have to be young or extroverted to work with students. They aren’t looking for cool adults to hang out with – they are drawn to people who care. We have all kinds of students so we need all kinds of people to care for them well!
