The Youth & Family ministry fosters spiritual growth in teenagers through experiences both fun and formative: weekly events, retreats, trips, and teaching. We desire each student to know they belong to Christ—and are therefore an integral part of his Body. Together, staff, parents, and the entire church community play a pivotal role in our ministry to youth.

A weekend retreat where students are divided into small groups and instead of going away, the retreat takes place in church members' homes. Youth spend the night, learn about God, eat, play games, give back to the community, hang out with old friends and make new ones, and worship in their assigned small groups. The Bible Study leaders are college students and young adults who engage the students in interactive bible lessons and lead them in all of their activities. The weekend also includes a Saturday morning serving the community through Day of Service. This weekend is full of surprises that draws youth closer to God and create an environment for friendships to grow. Friends are welcome!
