Youth Ministries

We seek to provide people with opportunities to know God; to experience God's abounding love, and with Christ as our guide, to fellowship with others as we seek, serve, and celebrate. Through our programs, people will explore what it means to be a child of God, and how we might live in such a way that others will come to know Christ.
