Youth School Year Programs

During the school year, we have a host of programs specifically tailored to the spiritual needs of middle and high school students. This is where we try to live out our commitment to the Apostle’s teaching and fellowship, the breaking of bread and the prayers; this is where we proclaim the good news of God in Christ. We wish to learn about the Kingdom of God, and how we are each called to participate in Christ’s reign.

Student Leadership Team

This dedicated group of High School students serves as relational ministers to our Middle School students. They meet twice a month on Sundays to study about Godly leadership and plan Middle School Youth. They then practice these leadership skills by facilitating games and giving talks. Taking the words of St. Paul to heart, these student leaders “set for the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.”
