High School

High school students’ personal faith grows by putting it in action, empowering youth to DO and LEAD, and deepen their relationship with Jesus.

High school ministry, directed by Hans Vigesaa and led by adult and teen volunteers, is focused on relationships between youth, Christ, peers, family, and the church.

The following programs build and support those relationships:

Youth on Wednesdays (YOWIES)

Wednesdays, 7:30-9 p.m., various locations (see below)
We are taking Wednesday Night Youth Group (YOWIE) out of the church and on the road.  This summer YOWIE becomes Backyard Bible Study.  Join us as we meet in different backyards to play games, eat food, worship and talk about God.  We meet :
