This Youth Ministry exists to restore people and rebuild places with the gospel of Jesus Christ as we make disciples of our covenant youth and their friends.

2017–18 Discipleship Groups
Discipleship groups are for students in seventh – 12th grades. They are grouped based on gender and age, and placed with an adult leader who will lead and shepherd them. These groups address three big needs in the life of a follower of Jesus:
- Discipleship—growth in students’ relationships with Christ;
- Fellowship—growth in students’ relationships with brothers and sisters in Christ; and
- Evangelism—growth in students’ relationship to the world in order to make disciples of Jesus Christ.
Discipleship groups for seventh–eighth grades meet at the church every Sunday.
Discipleship groups for ninth–12th grades will be meeting at various times and places.
If you are interested in being in a discipleship group, please email Alissa Preston for more information.
