Youth Ministries

Our Vision: We have a passion for seeing families follow Jesus everyday. Our family ministries are rooted in the concept that learning to follow Jesus must entail partnering with parents so we can become a stronger influence. We offer our families creative environments, age appropriate teacher lessons, and the priority of loving God in all we do.

Our Volunteers: A set of volunteers comitted to raising children in the Lord is vital to our Family Ministries. We work hard to create a safe and fun environment for our families every week. Our leaders are well trained and are required to complete a background screening before serving with our children.

Just as “Jesus grew in Wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and Man.” Luke 2:52 (NIV)

We want every child in our Family Ministry to grow and say…

I can make the wise choice by trusting and following Jesus.

I can trust God no matter what because He is my Creator, Father, Guide, and Savior.

I treat others the way they want to be treated by showing God’s love to those around

me and putting others before me.
