"Connecting students in our community to a meaningful relationship with Jesus"


Wednesdays 6:45-8:00PM in the Main Gym

The Wednesday midweek gathering is designed to put students at ease, focus them on Jesus and engage them in discussion.  We play fun games, have a short talk from the Youth Pastor and break up into "Engage Groups" to discuss.  No matter what your background, all Middle School and High School students are welcome!  


Sundays 6:00-8:00pm in the Main Gym & Youth Rooms

SNL is a regularly occurring small group experience for 6th-12th graders looking for a deeper more intimate group experience.  SNL is organized into 10-12 week small group experiences seasonally in the Fall, Winter and Spring.  Most seasons, students are welcome to jump in at any point during the season by simply purchasing the devotional book and showing up.  To purchase the $5 group devotional book we are using this season CLICK HERE


Sundays during the 9:30AM service in the Youth Rooms

Each Sunday morning we host classes for 6th-12th graders covering a wide range of topics designed to help students grow in their faith. We call it “Scion University”.   All Middle School and High School students are welcome to join us. We encourage students attending Scion University to take advantage of all-church worship opportunities before or after this class.


In addition to our weekly gatherings, we have LOTS of other stuff happening year round!  Follow us on Facebook, and Instagram to get the most up to date special event info.
