Our Youth Ministry hopes to develop disciples of Christ

so we want our 6th-12th grade students to love and follow Jesus in amazing, contagious, and adventuresome ways. Read more about the philosophy behind our youth ministry here. You can also check out our core values here. Join us as we strive to become better disciples and share Christ's love to those around us. Read below for gathering times & upcoming dates.

Roots on Sunday Mornings & The Grove on Wednesday Nights

6th-12th graders are invited to go deeper in Scripture, to practice spiritual disciplines to mature in their relationship with God, and to connect with their friends during the school year. Friends are always welcome! 

Roots Sundays from 9-10AM in the MPAC. All 6th-12th graders come together for a big group teaching time to study New Lessons from Ancient People and then join their Roots small groups led by our adult Roots Guides. Groups are divided by gender and grade.

The Grove meets on Wednesdays from 7-8PM in the MPAC. The first Wednesday of the month we meet at 6:15pm for a meal together. At 7pm we begin our time of worship and hear a guest speaker share about a way to serve in the city. The middle Wednesdays of the month we split HS and MS. The HS series is The Red Words. The MS series is Habits. On the last Wednesday of the month we split Guys and Girls.

Youth Minister, Fawn Bauer, and adult volunteer, Jarrod Taylor, are getting married at the end of September! They can't imagine celebrating without the youth group, so with the help of students, they are having a Vow Renewal on Sunday, October 15 at 3pm in the SVC Worship Center. Everyone is invited to the ceremony and potluck reception! So, bring yourself and a fingerfood or dessert and let's celebrate together.
