“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity” - Paul in 1 Timothy 4:12
Become a part of a movement that changes the world for Jesus Christ! Through discipleship, service, fun, and fellowship, youth in grades 6-12 have opportunities to grow in their faith, play together, and serve the community and world. Together we can grow closer as friends and share the love of Christ with our hurting world.
