          Youth Program


Our youth program is designed for high school and college age students but is also appropriate for more mature middle schoolers as well. Students will have opportunities to participate in daily devotionals, small group discussion, and community building activities.  Teacher Aaron will help the youth explore questions like: 

  • How can I become like Jesus?

  • How do I remain centered on Jesus?

  • How does God guide us?

  • How does God guide us through our failures?

  • And how do I grow through failure?
