Youth Group Context

  • Sunday Youth – The youth also have breakouts after worship in the sanctuary three Sundays a month.  The other Sunday they are encouraged to serve in a ministry or stay in the main service.
  • Summer Programs – The youth group has two summer programs, Tribes and Youth Camp.  Tribes is a 6-week competition-style event where students are in “tribes”.  They recruit visitors to join their groups, play games, and hear a Gospel message each week.  The format of youth camp changes year-to-year.  Summer programs for 2024 are already taken care of.
