Graduate Recognition Sunday, May 7

If you have a child who's a senior in high school or college, please fill out this Graduation Information Form and include a picture and send to Bill by no later than April 9. On Graduate Sunday we will present during the 11:00am traditional and 11:00am CAYA services! Afterward we'll have cake for all graduates so the church can come and congratulate each graduate!


Sunday Mornings

During the school year, our sixth – twelfth grade students are invited to come at 9:45am for our Sunday School time. Currently, all youth meet together for a short message and then divide out by middle and high school for discussion groups. During the summer months, our program location changes as we join the children’s ministry in their summer curriculum. 


Sunday Evenings

Throughout the school year, our sixth – twelfth grade students are invited to join for youth choir at 5:00pm followed by our youth program from 6-8pm. Our program includes a free meal, fellowship, and a message.


MISSION projects & TRIPs

This summer our youth will serve with Appalachia Service Project, June 18-24 (registration now closed). During the summer, our youth have the opportunity to participate in mission trips. These trips allow our youth to help others and gain valuable life experiences. For more information email:
