What We Do Here

Shield Nights

Grades 6-12 meet  Sundays from 6:00-7:30 PM for our weekly program in the Youth Room upstairs in the church!  Shield Nights consist of games, small groups and worship!

Bible Study

Grades 6-12 meet on Sunday mornings during the 11:00am service in the youth room.  Papa Herr teaches works through books of the Bible while we eat Poptarts!

 Leadership

The Leadership Team is a handful of our high schoolers who essentially run the Shield Ministry.  They teach, they lead small groups, they lead games, and they help plan events!

Worship 

The youth worship team has been pushed back due issues with Covid-19 but if you would like to join, feel free to let Connor know and we'll get you plugged in!
