High School Youth Group

What? A night of games, free food, laughs, worship, learning and adoration of Jesus.

When? EVERY WEDNESDAY! Food 6:30-7. Youth group 7-8:15.

Where? Cross Training Center, just north of the main church building.

A typical Wednesday night includes Bible study, small groups, games and hanging out. You can expect to be greeted, accepted, and loved from the second you walk in. We talk about theology, world religions, apologetics, faith, daily life, and all kinds of other topics! This is a safe place to bring questions about your faith.

Coming back for more on Sunday? High School Life Group meets on Sunday mornings in the same room, 11:00-11:50 am. We dig into the Bible to train and equip you to take your faith with you wherever you go! (Plus, there’s donuts!)

Junior High

Wednesday night, 7:00-8:15 pm, is the time to meet. We meet in the Cross Training Center (CTC) building, similar to the high school, but we have our own room to hang out in. Come find out what God has planned for your life, and discover what living a life with Jesus is like.

Junior High Bible Class meets on Sunday mornings, 11:00-11:50 am, for the junior high as well. We meet in the CTC in the same junior high youth group room. Come and learn what the Bible has to say about our lives.


A Wednesday night youth group for 5th and 6th grade! This pre-teen ministry is designed to meet kids in this unique stage of life as they transition from childhood to their teen years. Zone56 meets in a youth room of their own located in room 101 of the lower level of the church. Meaningful lessons, relationship building with adults and peers, service projects and game nights are all a part of this ministry. For more Zone56 info, contact Diana Zuercher, Director of Children’s Ministries.

We believe that God’s design is for the FAMILY to be the place where children and youth come to know Christ and grow in their faith and knowledge of Him. Our role as a church is to partner with – not to take the place of – parents in impressing God’s Word on the hearts of their children. So while we strive to connect youth to Christ through the programs we offer, we also strive to equip parents in their role as the primary spiritual instructors in their children’s lives.

These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 6:6-7.

Who are the Mennonite Brethren? Sometimes people hear the word “Mennonite” and their minds bring up all kinds of preconceived notions like a horse and buggy, or just think it sounds weird. What does it mean to be Mennonite Brethren? Before you jump to any conclusions, you might want to check out this video. It was recorded at Named2015, the last National Youth Conference in Denver, Colorado.
