Junior High is a unique time where many important life decisions are made. It is a very influential age where these decisions can affect their spiritual lives in significant ways. This ministry is dedicated to help with the transition of childhood to teenager-dom. A transition we hope and pray will lead to a stronger faith and a greater love for God.

Sunday Night Live - Combined Jr. High & High School
Sunday Night Live is a time where our purpose can be accomplished. Starting a relationship with God can happen when inviting friends to the play, praise, and pray night. This is a night when we have a fun activity, sing and praise God with our praise band, and pray together. Also, strengthening your relationship with God happens in our Bible study time. Lastly, service to God and others happens during our service project nights that include local and international projects.
Sunday Night Live begins at 6pm but teens are encouraged to come early to hang out and play games. Sunday Night Live is located in a separate building behind the church facility. It is the big beige building... you can't miss it.
*Note: During the winter months, the group will meet INSIDE the church building.
