Youth Ministry

From toddlers to teens, our Youth Ministry offers fun, safe activities for our youth while encouraging them in Christ.  There are so many reasons a ministry for our youth is important. Children are a gift from God and it is an incredible blessing to see children grow and lead them in this season of their life.

A Youth Ministry is Important Because . . .

Children are important to Jesus. "Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.'" (Matthew 19:14 NIV). It's made so evident throughout the whole Bible that children are important to Jesus and they are important to us, too!

Children need a firm foundation. "Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it." (Proverbs 22:6 NIV). The time we spend with children at a young age impacts the rest of their lives because the things that are instilled as a child won't be forgotten when they are older.

Children are the NOW generation. "We will not hide them from their descendants, we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, His power, and the wonders He has done." (Psalm 78:4 NIV). We often call children the next generation and a Youth Ministry can equip children to see the calling on their life and make a difference now with their friends and family,  in their school, and in the church.
