YOUTH GROUP ORGANIZATIONS AND ACTIVITIES 
 
 
     We offer 3 youth groups to provide an additional venue for our children to learn and grow in their relationship with God while also growing their relationships with each other through fun activities.  Each group also creates crafts for our shut-ins and participates in worship at various times during the year.  The Junior High and Senior High Youth Groups also participate in service and overnight events like retreats, mission trips and gatherings (locally and nationally).  We offer Fundraising opportunities throughout the year to supplement overnight event expenses because these events carry a higher cost.
 
     To learn more about each group and what they do during the year, click on the appropriate box shown below.
 
 NEW DATE:  Tri-Annual Gathering in  Minneapolis has been postponed to July 24-28, 2022 and they will continue with the regular schedule with the next Tri-Annual Gathering being held in 2024.  Youth in grades 8-12 as of September 2021 are eligible. We will hold fundraisers to help offset costs.
 
OUR LEADERS HAVE MISSED YOU ALL! WE ARE EXCITED THAT WE ARE NOW READY TO BEGIN PLANNING EVENTS FOR US TO WORSHIP, SERVE, AND GROW IN OUR FAITH TOGETHER AGAIN!!!
