Youth (Emerge)

Emerge – to rise from an inferior position; to become known.

This is what we feel God is calling this group of Jr. High and High School-aged young people to become. Every Wednesday night, we facilitate an environment and community that comes alongside parents to disciple and empower students to stand out as followers of Christ in our world. We build encouraging and fruitful relationships with one another that changes and impacts lives!

Our Wednesday night service is always exciting and it quickly becomes the highlight of our week. In addition to our Wednesday nights, the calendar is full of game nights, opportunities to hang out, and trips and getaways focused on life formation.

J-12 is another unique way we pour into and empower our youth.  Every third Sunday our youth from age twelve to the twelfth grade, are invited to sit with an elder of the church to learn and be discipled.  This is a dynamic, interactive, media rich and fun setting where they are being taught the foundations of our faith in a way that sticks with them forever!
