Our youth ministry is all about inviting students and families into a life changing relationship with Jesus. In all of our ministries we aim to make our teachings to be: biblical, challenging, and pertinent.
During the junior high phase everything is changing: relationships, understandings, and even our bodies. Junior high students need to be affirmed for who they are. We want our students to encounter a God who is unshakeable even in the midst of change. Our junior high ministry gathers twice a week, once on Sundays and once on Wednesdays. Throughout the year there will be service and relational opportunities outside of our regular gatherings. Any and all junior high students are welcomed attend any of our junior high opportunities. If you have any questions make sure to contact us!

Junior High Retreat | May 10-12th
Theme: Made this Way
Location: El Camino Pines
Our retreat to invite junior high students into a life changing relationship with Jesus Christ by discovering that we are created humans beings, made to be sexual, but sexual with a plan and a design that is good and holy.
Over this weekend we will begin lifelong conversation of what it means to be created by God and a part of that creation being sexual beings. Everyone has an opinion on what sexuality means, but we will look at what the bible says and the implications of it in our own lives. We want our students to have a bunch of fun experiencing El Camino Pines Camp, everything from a rock wall to small groups to hikes!
The weekend will have both large group and small group teachings and conversations. This is not an anatomy retreat, but a spiritual retreat, therefore we will worship, pray, read and hear the scriptures, and we will also spend time in reflection. Retreats are exactly what they are titled, retreats! That means we want our students to find solace and rest in getting away from the norms of life. Made This Way is a two part retreat for junior high students. The first year is covering God’s plan for our sexuality and the second year is covering God’s plan for us as a community. We are made sexual, and we are made for community.
The topics covered will be intimacy and desire, responsibility and boundaries, grace and faith.
The high school phase is all about seeing the big picture. High school students need to be mobilized in the mission of Christ. We want our students to see that as faithful followers of Jesus they can make an impact on a broken world that needs one. Our high school ministry has two gatherings, one on Sundays and one on Tuesdays. Throughout the year we offer retreats and various service opportunities. During the summer students going into 9th grade through leaving 12th grade are invited to attend our annual high school mission trip. Any and all high school students are welcomed to attend any of our ministry gatherings. If you have any questions make sure to contact us!
