The Senior High Youth Ministry is essentially a three-tiered system that provides a variety of students with a variety of experiences in which their lives and faith intersect.
- The first tier is youth group, our main gathering on Sunday nights, in which students of any number of faith backgrounds gather together.
- The second tier is Youth Bible Fellowship (YBF) on Sunday mornings, in which students who have made a commitment to following Jesus can grow together.
- The third tier, intended for those students who are highly committed to growing in their faith, is the small group tier.

Senior High Youth Group
Senior High Youth Group meets almost every Sunday night from 7:00 to 9:00 pm in the youth room. A typical night includes approximately 45 minutes of games and competitions, followed by a 30-45 minute “devotional,” which varies from video series to group discussions to presentations from youth group staff or guest speakers as well as messages from Pastor Leo. The evening then wraps up with refreshments and free time to play basketball, dodgeball, pool, or foosball, to participate in jam sessions with student musicians, to meet with our staff members or to simply hang with friends. These evenings are open to anyone in 9th through 12th grade.
Small groups are single gender gatherings of no more than six to eight students and two staff who meet together throughout the school year to study Scripture and pertinent topics. The smaller group and single gender environment allow for more personal discussion and are intended to take students deeper than any of our other events. Most groups meet from 7:00-8:30 pm on Wednesdays at the church or in individual homes.
Youth Bible Fellowship (YBF)
YBF is a transition from the Sunday School programs of childhood into the Adult Bible Fellowship programs of adulthood. It is intended for high school students who want to delve deeper into their faith together and includes time spent discussing Scripture, Christian living, apologetics and social issues from a Biblical perspective. YBF is a discussion-driven environment in which students are challenged to think critically and defend their positions and also encouraged to ask thought-provoking questions. It meets from 9:00-10:10 am in the youth room every Sunday morning.
