For the safety and health of everyone during the COVID-19 outbreak, we are continuing to offer worship online.

On Sunday September 6, we will offer an outdoor worship service on the lawn at 8:15am. For the health of all worshipers, we ask that you follow important safety protocols: bring your own chair, wear a mask, practice social distancing, offer no-contact greetings (hand over your heart), and please stay home if you are feeling ill or are vulnerable to contracting the virus. More information is here.

We are hosting services online via Livestream on our Worship Now page. Both live and archived services are available. Our Contemporary Service will be streamed live at 9:30am Sundays. Our Traditional Service will be streamed live at 11:00am Sundays.

We have online and downloadable faith formation resources available.

We are a community of students in sixth through twelfth grades united for the purpose of growing in God’s love. Church membership is not required to participate in youth activities – everyone is welcome. Our mission is to gather united and spend time in community with each other, grow in Christ by growing in our spiritual walks with small groups and weekly worship and go with a purpose to spread the love of Jesus by serving others locally, nationally and internationally.

BACK TO SCHOOL PARK-N-PRAY

Whether students will be attending in-person class or virtual/e-learning all are encouraged and welcome to be a part of Park-N-Pray. Together, Children’s and Youth Ministries have created a guided prayer trip for the whole family. It is our hope that your family will take this time and make stops in your community to pray for your school, your home and for others as the school year kicks off. This will guide you through prayer and spiritual connection for the beginning of the school year.

Some of you may have begun classes already… no problem, this is still a great opportunity to speak to God at the beginning of your journey of a school year like no other!
