Youth Sunday School

We meet every Sunday for Sunday School at 9am upstairs in the Youth Room. We have a great time with prayer, Bible study, and games. The class is taught by Jana Williams and we are doing a series called “Ask the Hard Questions.”

Youth Group 

We meet every Thursday for Youth Group from 7pm to 8:30pm at the church. We have snacks, games, worship, prayer, and in-depth Bible study. Come join us!

Youth Activities 

We have one fun group activity or trip per month and one service project per month. During the school year we volunteer at the Somerset County Mobile Food Bank every other month and we do a service at Meadow View Nursing Home every other month. See a full schedule of our youth activities near the bottom of this page.

Curriculum Schedule

A Parent Paper is sent out every week with more details about what we are studying in Youth Sunday School and Youth Group that week. It includes the Bible chapters, main themes, songs, an educational video, and a prompt that gives you something to talk about with your youth. Contact Jana if you would like to receive the Parent Paper. 

Daily Devotions
February – May 2024

This spring our daily devotions will be from a book called “Defend Your Faith: 100 Devotions for Kids with Questions.” This devotional will equip and empower our youth to discover, decide, and defend what they know about God! In this kid-friendly devotional introduction to apologetics, 100 easy-to-understand readings reveal how creation is covered with God’s fingerprints, present intriguing archaeological findings that confirm Scripture, and offer inspiring real-life stories of defenders of the faith. We will start these devotions on February 12th and go until May 22nd.
