Jr and Sr. High Youth


As the youth of the Church navigate their Junior High and High School years, they are in many ways not unlike the earliest Christians coming to grips with their world decades after the crucifixion.

It was no longer enough to focus solely on personal piety and the needs of the group. It was a big, ugly world they were going to have to live in, and the only resource they had for survival was their incredible spiritual faith and the Power of the Holy Spirit.

We will look throughout he entire Bible to see how God, through the Prophets, Jesus, and the Apostles, wants us to see the world.


The youth will be doing a study on Dave Ramsey’s Generation Change, designed to lead teens to a better understanding of God, themselves, and their money – and how it all works together.

We learned amazing songs, heard stories of the Heros of the Bible, made crafts and science projects.  We learned that ALL of us have Heart, Courage, Wisddom, Hope and Power through Jesus Christ.
