Youth Group

YOUTH GROUP is open to 6th grade through 12th grade!!



We typically meet upstairs in the Jr. High room. We discuss scripture from Sunday’s scripture readings in church. We also watch movies such as Joan of Arcadia and discuss how the themes in the shows are present in teen’s lives today.


Not only do we meet several times each month on Sunday afternoons for teen fellowship, we also participate in field trips to Elitches, Water World, Colorado Rockies games, Family Fun Pool Days and Pumpkin Patches throughout the year. Our Youth group also strives to build upon principles of leadership, religious growth and self-esteem.


We also welcome all Jr. & Sr. High Youth from the surrounding communities.  Please come share with us in some fun, laughter and Christian fellowship.
