Youth Group Off to a Terrific Start!

Our monthly youth group for "tweens" is off to a terrific start! In December, we gathered to make pizzas and play silly games. In January, we learned to draw using simple guidelines and we painted our designs on canvases. Next month, we're really excited to do some weird and wacky science experiments (slime, anyone?) Of course, all of this fun is had in a warm, nurturing Christ-centered environment. The youth group is open to children 8-12 years old. If you are interested in more information about our youth group, please email our Christian Education Lead Teacher at Our staff and volunteers are trained in and follow "safe church" practices when working with children.
