We are a community of students in sixth through twelfth grades united for the purpose of growing in God’s love. Church membership is not required to participate in youth activities – everyone is welcome. Our mission is to gather united and spend time in community with each other, grow in Christ by growing in our spiritual walks with small groups and weekly worship and go with a purpose to spread the love of Jesus by serving others locally, nationally and internationally.
