Youth Ministry

Mission Statement

1 Timothy 4:12

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity.

We are the youth, the future of the church. Believing in the trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), we value:

  • Worship to develop spiritually
  • Education to learn with and teach others
  • Fellowship to develop friendships
  • Mission to help people
  • Stewardship to share our time, talents, and labor.

Friends are always welcome!!!

Worship. Education. Fellowship. Mission. Stewardship.

  • Disciple Zone Sunday School Classes for all children in grades K through 12 meet at 9:00-10:10 AM each Sunday Morning from September through May.
  • Grades K through 6th participate in Rotation Stations. Each Sunday children are engaged in Bible stories and characters through Drama/Story telling, Science, Art, Cooking, Spiritual Practices, Mission, Music, and Games.  Each week they rotate to 3 different stations that focus on the same subject.  Teachers vary each for each station including some special guest teachers!
  • Children sing in worship several times each year.
  • The Middle School Class meets from 9:00-10:10 each Sunday morning with teachers Jennifer Tancraitor and Nate Vater.  This class dives deep into scripture as well as mission projects along with the high school class.
  • The High School Class is a mission based group that puts their time and effort in supporting community programs and issues such as Operation Safety Net, Ronald McDonald House, Homeless Teens through Covenant House and hunger programs. Nancy Schultz leads this class.
  • The Middle School and High Classes start each Sunday with JAM—group time where a focus is reinforced through game, discussion or hands on activity as well as planning time for projects.  They also participate in worship through readings, skits, and moments for mission announcements.
  • Young Disciple Time is the time for children during the worship service.  Children come forward to here a lesson based on the scripture for that Sunday.  The children then leave for an activity that reinforces the lesson.  The children return to worship following the sermon.
  • Disciple Zone Annual Activities: “Souper“ Bowl”, Pretzel Day, Love Your Neighbor Events, Ugly Christmas Sweater Sunday, Reverse Trick-or-treat and Spring Fling at a local nursing facility, Sleep-Out, Lock-in, Youth Service and more!
