Youth Ministry

"I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are my people,’ and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God."

Zechariah 13:9

Refinery, our youth group, meets downstairs each Wednesday night for dinner and fun! We'll start with dinner at 6:30pm and wrap up around 8pm or so. All kids from 7th to 12th grade are invited to come eat, laugh, and learn more about how God is at work in our lives. It's a safe, welcoming place where students can experience the love of Jesus, grown their faith, and build strong relationships. All youth are welcome to come!

Refinery also meets at 10am on Sunday mornings. If you're in 7th to 12 grade, we invite you to join everyone in the sanctuary through worship time. After the music ends, you'll go downstairs to the youth room for a time of fun and teaching aimed specifically at the questions, problems, and decisions that matter the most to you.

Our Refinery youth group has its own social media pages:
