What is Youth?!  It is open to all 6th-12th graders who want to learn more about their own faith and how to live that out in their everyday lives.  We meet on Sundays Sunday from 5:30-7:00 pm starting with dinner and then transitioning into a time of fellowship and faith!

What is Junior Youth?! is open to any 4th-5th graders and includes monthly activities that run alongside WYFi. The goal is to begin to introduce these older children to youth ministry as they transition out of children’s ministry.
