To know and be known: this is our desire for every youth.  

We believe we were created for love, to know God and be transformed by God so that we may give love away with life-changing influence. We choose to live in community together with peers and adults who are thoughtful, authentic, and born to change the world. Through life together, youth will experience a variety of opportunities to grow deep in learning and love, while reaching out wide impacting their world and beyond.

Some high school programming requires a Youth Release Form. Please download the form and return the completed form to the church.

Events and Trips

Soul Food
April 30, 6-8:15pm in the Garden Lounge
Soul Food is a fellowship and worship gathering for all Middle School and High School youth. These Sunday evenings are full of games, authentic fellowship, great food, and invigorating worship with a meaningful message. Mark your calendars today and invite friends – all are welcome as we take a time out from busy schedules and join together in rest, play and community.

Summer Trip 2017 – Nashville, TN
July 8 – July 15

Nashville overflows with culture and opportunities to serve those in need. Our help will not only serve the local community, but it will make an impact through the world as we partner with Soles4Souls. In addition, we’ll bless others through work at local food banks, refugee ministries, local congregations, and children centers. No trip to Nashville would be complete without live music and a stroll down Broadway. Registration is now closed for this trip.

Gloria Dei Auction

The Auction is our annual church-wide fundraiser to help offset the cost of the Summer Trips for Middle and High School Youth. In past years the auction has helped bring approx. $295 per participant.  Every participant wanting to receive auction proceeds towards their trip, must donate an auction item, and volunteer/participate with auction prep and the event to qualify for proceeds and attend our auction meeting. We also need donations from our congregation, as well as attendees! Be on the lookout for more information early 2018.
