Children & Youth
We invite youth in grades 7 thru 12 to be with us as we explore our faith through videos, games, service projects and some discussion. We gather together for a time of fellowship, devotion and fun. Our Youth Program meets most Sunday afternoons following worship. While we understand that not all youth are able to make it out we will be doing other activities at other times to which they are always welcome.
Youth Drama Team
Our youth drama team has met a couple of times and is soon looking to share with us on a Sunday morning worship. They are working on short skits that in the end will bring the audience to pause and consider their relationship with Christ. We invite youth who are interested in drama to join us on the second Wednesday of the month in the parlor as we work and rehearse.
Being an acolyte is a unique way for our young people to serve in the church during worship. This service involves lighting and extinguishing the candles and helping with the offering. Our hope is to have many of our youth involved and that they will appreciate this opportunity to serve the church and the Lord. For more about the acolyte program please contact Holly Garemore or Pastor Charlie.
