Stoked Youth Ministry, led by Pastor Joshua Villars and two interns, is our program for youth in grades 6 through 12. The program is designed to build young disciples for Christ, involve young people in the worship life of the church, and provide opportunities for discipleship, mission, and outreach. We offer opportunities for Bible Study, discussion, and worship, all sprinkled with food, games, and other activities. Retreats, mission projects, and day trips round out the program.
Students in grades 6-12 meet for Sunday School every Sunday at 9:45 am in the youth building (located across Short St. from the main building). During Sunday School, students may dive deeper into the message from worship or discuss other topics that are relevant to their age group.
Stoked Youth meets on Sunday evenings from 5-7 pm in the youth building. These gatherings are focused on worship, food, games, and more in-depth studies of relevant, Biblical topics. This time may also include youth band practice, participating in other church events, and more.
Stoked Youth will meets on Wednesday evenings at 6:15 pm. This time together includes Bible study, worship, and discussion. It may also include Confirmation classes, games, and more.
Missions and Outreach
Our students participate in a number of outreach opportunities, including volunteering locally and going on mission trips to other parts of the country. Check out this video to see the work they did on a mission trip to Lumberton, North Carolina last summer.
