Rooted youth ministry connects 7th through 12th grade students with other Christians and challenge them to honor God with their lives. It also teaches non-believing teenagers about the abundant life in Christ.

The teens are given ownership of the youth ministry. They have a large role in the decision-making and production of our activities and service to others. This ownership role helps develop commitment and leadership, as well as strengthens the teens’ personal and spiritual growth.

Regular activities

Youth Events

Summer Study: 'The Good Book'

6:30 pm, Wednesdays this summer (except June 21). Our goal will be to take a look at some of the bigger theological themes of scripture to both familiarize ourselves with God's Word and provide an opportunity for students to find a passion for the Word and for sharing it with others.
