Sunday Class for Youth

Our youth class is for grades 7-12 and is not a "class" like school.  There are couches.  There are snacks.  So many snacks.  There is sharing highs and lows from your week.  You read the Bible.  You talk about what you think and hear from the leaders.  You share some application to your life thoughts.  You pray for the concerns and needs of the group.  Lots of bonding.  Growing together with Jesus.

Join us!

Laser Tag - Youth Grades 7-12 

We had a big group and a great time  Saturday, January 21st with 2 laser tag games, video game play cards, pizza and soda.  

We had a great day of serving our neighbors -   We took care of 2 big yard and lots of leaves and then went back to church for pizza and 9Square fun in November.  In December we did some Christmas Caroling for some of the same neighbors.  We joined our Music  Ministry on this fun event and had some fun food and 9Square following.

Youth Gathering Report
Thanks for your support!

Our group of Aria, Christin, Constansa, Lana, Luca, James, Mathias, Amanda and Mark survived the Houston heat and our travel went well.  Certainly the mass events were powerful to see around 20,000 youth singing hymns and songs of praise together. We grew closer as a group and made friends and connections with people from all over.  Of course the games were one way that happened, from 9Square to volleyball to many and various games and challenges.  The food part was most difficult, with so many others trying to get food one location prices and lines were crazy.  Please ask one or more of the participants about their experience.  I’d love for you to hear directly from them!  Thank you and the whole congregation for your wonderful and generous support!   

Serving our Egg Hunt outreach

Thanks for serving!
