Seeking to help students find their identity in Christ and understand their purpose with Christ.

High School Students (9 - 12) Sundays 9:00 am class. Youth Group for High School students is referred to as Intersect and they meet on Sundays, 6:00 - 7:30pm.

Jr High Students (7-8) Sundays 9:00 am class. Youth Group for Jr High is referred to as Nexus and they meet on Wednesdays, 7:00 - 8:30 pm.


In high school many students begin to ask important life questions like: What should I do? Who should I be? What do I believe? We believe that God has a plan for the life of every student. Through biblical teaching and small group discussions, we hope that together we can help students discover the plan that God has for their life.

A weekly program for 9th through 12th grade students that... 

  • meets on Sunday nights during the school year from 6pm - 7:30 pm.
  • offers a hangout from 5pm - 6pm with open gym, ping pong, pool table, music, xbox and more.
  • highlights biblical teaching and small group discussions with high school students.


Jr. high is tough. It makes it even tougher when students seek to find their identity outside of who God says they are. At Nexus it is our desire that every jr. high student knows who they are as God defines them. We seek to accomplish this goal through biblical teaching and small group environments.

Nexus is a weekly program for 7th and 8th grade students that…

  • meets on Wednesday nights during the school year from 7-8:30 pm.
  • offers an experience including games and snacks.
  • highlights teaching and focused group time with other jr. high students.
