High School

Youth Group

Our High School Youth Group fosters a sense of welcome and belonging where our youth can journey together to gain a deeper understanding of the Christian faith and learn the benefits of being part of a loving faith community. During the school year we meet regularly on Wednesday nights from 7-8:30 for a time of fellowship, food and fun. We tackle tough questions and maintain a bond of trust that goes past social cliques at school. Throughout the year, we participate in service projects, head out for adventures like indoor zip lines and enjoy raucous games of manhunt, sardines and Wiffle ball.

Mission Trips

High schoolers (and incoming 9th graders) are invited to participate in an annual week-long trip each June. Mission trips provide the youth with a tremendous opportunity to learn and reflect about themselves and the world they live in. We see a profound change in perspective as the week progresses and the kids live among those they are serving and listen to their stories. Initial perceptions are challenged as we discover a capacity for compassion that goes beyond a week of service.

Our next mission trip will take place in Denver, Colorado in June 2017. Prior mission trips have traveled to Matanzas, Cuba, New Mexico, San Francisco, New Orleans, West Virginia, Nashville, Portland ME and the Jersey shore.

High schoolers are invited to participate in an annual week-long trip each summer.  Mission trips provide the youth with a tremendous opportunity to learn and reflect about themselves and the world they live in. For the past several years we partnered with Experience Mission, a group that fosters ongoing local relationships so that the work done by visiting mission trip participants is work the local community actually wants done.

Our next mission trip will take place in Cuba in June, 2016. Prior mission trips have traveled to New Mexico, San Francisco, New Orleans, West Virginia, Nashville, Portland ME and the Jersey shore.
