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.


During the months of August through May; Epic is a place for students in grades 7-12 to come together and engage in conversations about God, learn about life, and to be a part of something bigger than themselves. EPIC Small Groups are held on Sunday Nights at 6:00 PM and Wednesday nights in various family homes at 7:00 PM.

Burgers and Bibles

Burgers and Bibles is a Bible Study for our EPIC Youth held on Wednesday nights this Summer at The North Liberty Rec Center at 6:30 PM.  It is a refreshing way to spend your night with dinner and a Bible lesson.
