"As for me, I will always have hope! I will praise You more and more... Since my youth, God, You have taught me." -- Psalm 71: 14, 17
Faith's Youth ministry is where middle school students, high school students, and adult leaders come together to grow in faith, fellowship, and relationships that matter. We build those relationships by building faithful community together and deepening our relationships with God and with one another. To accomplish this we focus on things like:
God Squad is the youth group for 6th-12th graders. When in person, they meet in the youth room (room 204) in the Love to the Max Center, except for our fun outings off-campus! For now, we will meet virtually. Let’s have fun by reading the word and fellowship with one another. Bring a friend!
For any God Squad questions, please contact Pastor Nick.
Mission: The mission for God SQD is to foster relationships with God and one another while also sharing a Christ like love with the community.
Theme: This Fall 2020 we're taking a look at some movies that have important and helpful messages whether they're meant to or not. We're going to keep in mind the whole time that while movies might actually be made to help us escape reality, it is God who oftentimes chooses to use this medium to help us prepare to experience new realities so that we might experience the limitless possibilities of a graceful, merciful and loving God.
Objective: While we continue to practice social distancing and adapt to the new reality around us God SQD will stay connected virtually twice a month through a movie night activity and a craft or service event. Each month’s movie will focus around a central Christian theme that we will then explore through our craft or service event.
Confirmation is a group designed for 8th-grade students that teaches the significance of the promises spoken at baptism. Students will grow to better understand what their faith means to them and how they can share that with others. If you are interested in Confirmation Group, contact Pastor Nick.
Youth who love music (or want to learn to) are invited to join one of our choirs. Struck by Faith Choir (6th-12th grades) rehearses Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30 pm.
High School students can also join the Adult Choir and the Bell Choir. Adult choir rehearses Wednesdays from 7:00-9:00 pm. Bell Choir rehearses Sundays from 12:15-1:45 pm. See the MUSIC page for more info.

Mission and Outreach opportunities are ways for our students to think and act beyond themselves and to build/grow Relationships That Matter!
Every summer, Faith students do a special week-long mission project or take a special trip. The focus is to teach practical service skills and deepen relationship bonds.
