Youth Ministry

It’s about creating an environment where they can belong!

Director of Youth Ministries: Kari Schaefer

There is nothing more important to us than our kids!  We put a lot of energy into creating a safe and fun environment where kids of all ages can learn about Jesus!  This is a place where faith, learning and fun go hand-in-hand.  We encourage our youth to be involved in inviting, participating and serving. 
It’s a place where God is cool!
