Students grade 6-12 are mentored, nurtured, and encouraged to participate in and originate a variety of mission and fellowship projects. This year, we introduce a new youth group structure to better meet the needs of each age group:
- 6th/7th Grades will focus on Team Building and having fun
- 8th/9th Grades will focus on Church-based projects
- 10th – 12th Grades will focus on larger, community-based projects
In addition all youth groups will:
- Visit the Haunted Corn Maze and have a bonfire in October
- Participate in the local Homeless and Hungry awareness and fundraising project
- Conduct the annual Cookie Walk fundraiser
- Celebrate with a Christmas Party
- Take a ski trip
- Raise money in support of Souper Bowl of Caring to fight hunger
- Conduct the annual Easter brunch
- And much, much more!
