Weekly Meetups

Wednesday 6pm-7:30pm

While our new youth facilities are being built, we are currently meeting in the church Sanctuary on Wednesday nights. We begin with free time, then some group games (usually with a twist), followed by worship, Bible study, and prayer.  Wednesday nights are a great time to check us out for the first time if you get nervous around new groups.

Sunday 9am-10am

Sunday mornings are usually focused more on Bible Study. We take a look at how the things that go on in our life relate to the truths we read about in the Bible and then discuss ways to apply those truths in practical ways. On occasion, we will take random road trips to do a mission project or just hang out and have coffee somewhere during this time as well. It allows us to have focused time to encourage and get to know each other.

Real. Relevant. Relational.

JCC Youth is for students turning 13-18 by 8-1-2022. Much like our Jr. Youth group, both groups are an excellent environment to team up with kids your age, have a little fun and excitement, get a little real with each other in doses, and learn about Jesus through studying the Bible in  relevant, practical, and meaningful ways.
