YOUTH MISSION EXPERIENCES
The summer of 2024, we will have 2 week long youth mission experiences. Any youth currently in 6th-12th grade can attend either or both of the mission experiences. Adults are always needed!
In addition to our week long mission experiences, we will have local mission days where we will go to local mission agencies to help out in our community! In the past we have worked with Kindness Closet, FeedNC, Bridge of Hearts, The Christian Mission, and more! As these dates get scheduled, information will be added below.

What: Appalachian Service Project is a long standing leader in home repair ministry done right. Their tag line is that they are a relational ministry with construction on the side. We will be working on homes (vetted by ASP) and doing basic home repair task to help make the home safer and more liveable.
Work based mission trips are great trips for youth. They help build their confidence, by doing things they didn't know they were capable of doing. They stretch youth (and adults) emotionally, physically, and spiritually. They help give all participants a better perspective on our own lives. Youth simply come back changed!

YOUTH MINISTRY PROGRAMS
Our youth ministry programs are designed to help youth find ownership of their faith, grow in their faith, and learn how to live their faith boldly outside the walls of the church. We are very relationally focused, working to build a supportive community were everyone can find a place of belonging and can use their gifts to build up the community around them.
There are programs on Sunday morning that are more bible study focused The Sunday night program has large group worship time as well as a small group time where youth can safely explore their faith through topics that are relavant to them. Our current small group break down is a 6th grade girls group, a 7th & 8th girls group, a middle school boys group, and a high school group.
We have fall and spring retreats that are great times to get to know other youth better, they often serve as incredible mountain top encounters with God, and can springboard youth into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. We also maintain a missional focus, serving both in our local community and on mission trips to other states.
All youth that are in 6th - 12th grade are welcome to join any of our programs at any time!
Sunday morning at 11:00, we have two groups that meet down at the youth house.
Middle School - The middle school group meets at the God Cave and is currently looking at biblical principles that we can find in film/movies. Most of the movies we watch are disney based, but we can really watch just about anything!
High School - The high school group meets in the youth house and have an in depth bible study. It is an open format, where they read scripture together and talk about what they think it means.
Snacks and hot cocoa are provided each week for the youth in the Youth House Kitchen.
