On Wednesday nights from 6:00-6:30 p.m., after Midweek family dinnertime and before choir
practice, the 3rd-5th grade youth group meets in the Chapel and Atrium. It is a
time to come together for friendship and learning more about who God is
and what faith is all about. Our theme this year is "How Will They Know? How Will We Show?"
High School Summer Mission Trip
Students entering 9th
grade through just-graduated high school seniors are eligible for the
High School Mission Trip, held over one week each summer (typically in
June). Sites change yearly, and projects differ from helping with meal
programs for the homeless, construction projects, and more. We spend a
week growing closer to God, and closer together as a youth group. Recent
past trips have included Atlanta, GA; Costa Rica; Washington, D.C.; and Chicago.
