The mission of our Youth Group is to serve others, grow in our faith and to enjoy fellowship with each other. This mission has been occurring regularly and noticeably throughout this past year due to the enthusiasm, excitement and dedication of its members and its leaders. Our program has established itself as an open and inviting place to join for members and non-members.
Pre-Youth: Fab Fridays
Each month, 4th and 5th graders gather on Friday night to get a taste of what youth group will be like. Fun, games and of course reflections help our kids know just how great it is going to be in youth group!

Families at First
Families at First is designed for parents of school age children to provide fellowship and spiritual support. During the pandemic, this gathering is often by Zoom, but when the weather warms up we like to gather outside. The group is led by Rev. Karen Jackson and her husband Rev. Rob Jackson who are also parents of school-age children.
Our 2nd-5th graders make up JAM Singers and JAM Ringers. These older students begin to learn more about reading music (both choral and bell music) and learning the skills to be lifelong musicians. Together, we talk about the honor and responsibility of offering our gifts back to God through worship.
Age 4 (Pre-K)
1st graders comprise the Cherub Choir and Cherub Ringers. At this age, there is an emphasis on having fun making music together. Though the Cherubs do sing and ring occasionally for worship and special programs, there is no pressure on the children to do so.
