General Overview of Youth Group

We will praise God through song and learn more about the Gospel of grace through Bible teaching, peer discussion, and prayer. This will be a great time to have fun playing group games, to be reminded of what is true, and to know that you are not alone as we walk through life together. 

  • Masks will be worn.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available.



Join us as we embark on a journey this summer full of fellowship, food, and following Jesus as we travel through the Gospel!
