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. 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.
