Teens in grades 7 - 12 are welcomed to an exciting and busy youth group where they are encouraged to involve themselves in church ministries and are invited to enjoy many fun activities throughout the year.

Every Wednesday evening teens meet separately from the adults for sports, games, singing, and Bible teaching tailored to issues they face. Also, from October to April, teens experience an organized competition in Bible memory and study, music, ministry, and creative categories. This year's competition, The Ties That Bind, focuses on a Christian's relationships, first with Jesus Christ, then with other people in all walks of life.
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
1 John 4:10 - 11
