Sunday Mornings

Will resume in September. Our youth program continues to grow! We now have four age groups that meet every Sunday morning: the Little Lambs for ages 2 through 6; the J.A.M. (Jesus and Me) Club for grades 2 through 4; the C.I.A. (Christ in Action) for grades 5 through 8; and the Godly Crue for grades 9 through 12.

Wednesday Evenings

Now in its third full year, the Wednesday night Youth Group presents an additional opportunity for middle and high school students to gather, share their joys and concerns, devotions, and to develop their music and acting skills by performing skits based on that week’s scripture reading to full-blown productions during the Easter and Christmas seasons. Their first Palm Sunday reenactment of Christ’s crucifixion was described by many as the best Palm/Passion Sunday service they had ever attended. In 2015 their depiction of the crucifixion brought tears to the eyes of virtually every member of the congregation, and performed an original production that brought to life the true meaning of Christmas – not the shopping frenzy many call ‘Christmas.’





The 2015 program was “The Christmas Shoe Tree,” a musical depicting a life-changing effort to impact the world . . . one shoe at a time! Set at a family’s Christmas tree farm, through Scripture, songs and a heart-warming story, God’s love in action is shown as they collect shoes to be given to those in need.
