Our program for 7th through 12th graders, meets every Wednesday night at 7p for fun activities, positive messages and energized worship, led by our youth.

During the school year, students can come early and work on their homework with friends at 5p in the Cafe.





Our Junior High Youth engage in uplifting worship, listen to a relevant message, encourage one another in small groups, and participate in fun activities that allow them to build lasting friendships. The 7th  & 8th graders meet on Wednesday nights 7-8:30p during the school year and 6:30-8:30p during the summer.

Students are able to step into a warm and welcoming environment that encourages them to get away from all the chaos of life. During our time together students are engaged in powerful worship, prayer, small groups, and fellowship with other believers. Throughout the year there are numerous activities, retreats, and events planned. These 9th through 12th grade students meet on Wednesday nights 7-8:30p during the school year and 6:30-8:30p during the summer.
