Several events take place year-round for Jr. High students to stay connected and grow in their faith. For more information on these events, contact Paul Ginther and stay tuned to the website for all current event updates.

The 1st Sunday of the month is “Testimony” Sunday – This is a time where adults from the church are scheduled to come and share their story with the students.

The 2nd Sunday of the month is traditionally our joint ABF Sunday – This is a time where the entire adult classes and youth classes hear what God is doing in the lives and ministries of the missionaries we support.

The 3rd Sunday of the month is  “Hmmm?” Sunday – This is a lesson Sunday on varied topics that get the students to dig deeper in their knowledge of Christ.

The 4th Sunday of the month is “Sunday Serve”  –  This is when the students meet in the classroom, and then the class will engage in a variety of service opportunities at the church.

The Sr. High classroom is room 420. Please see the map below.

We meet Sunday nights at the church from September thru March.  A wide variety of fun activities are available for teens to interact with one another to build lasting relationships. Studies in the Word deepen the teen’s understanding of who God is, strengthening and maturing their faith.

Several activities are planned year-round for Sr. High students to stay connected. For more information on these events, contact Paul Ginther and stay connected to the website for up-to-date event information.


We exist to bring glory to God by making disciples who make disciples – a ministry of multiplication.


Our vision for Youth Ministries is to develop a community of young people who are experiencing the joy of a relationship with Jesus Christ, who recognize Christ’s purpose for their lives, and who seek to know Christ more. We desire for our youth to make Him known to others while simultaneously building healthy friendships and experiencing meaningful fellowship. In general, we desire our Youth Ministry to enhance what parents are doing at home, but not entirely replace it.

We seek to create…

…a place where you are encouraged to connect with friends — old and new.
…a place where students feel welcome and comfortable to explore what it means to know and follow Jesus.
…a place where you can join with Christ in building his church.
