We use the family-based approach to children’s and youth ministry.

Deuteronomy 6:4-10
Parents are to “impress [the commands to love God] on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”

Our youth ministry focuses on relationships- between youth and each other & youth and their parents.

We seek to empower biblical, multi-generational, family-based discipleship.

We do this through:
  • Sunday School classes (all ages)
  • Family Worship Nights (all ages)
  • Monthly Youth Activities (7th-12th)
  • Prayer Partnerships with older church members (7th-12th)
We're hiring!

We're looking for a Pastor of Family Discipleship to oversee the instruction and care of our children and youth, as well as to aid parents in discipling their families. For a full job description, click here
