YOUTH MINISTERIES

It’s all about connecting, growing, and serving.  We connect together twice on Sundays to grow as we share life and faith together.  On the first Sunday evening of each month, we connect away from church – ice skating in the winter, beach in the summer, sharing a meal, and other places.


Every summer, we serve together on mission trips.  Our Middle School team goes to northern Virginia or West Virginia with the Jeremiah Project (click here for more information).  Our High School team is planning to travel to Hexham, England in 2018 to partner with Hexham Trinity Methodist Church (click here for more information) for their annual Vacation Bible School.  In 2019, students from Hexham will visit Williamsburg.
