Our youth program has everything from Sunday School to Missions work, with groups, retreats, fundraising activities and trips in between and is geared toward 6th – 12th-grade levels.

Sunday Morning Youth Class

Age group: Jr. & Sr. High Youth Sunday School features lessons specific to youth with discussion as well as activities that will reinforce the lesson.

Sunday Evening Youth – Meal and Youth Group

Age group: Jr. & Sr. High
Youth Group is a night where our students can spend time learning about God and Faith in a unique environment tailored to them. We kick off each evening with a meal and finish with a variety of interactive activities. You might find the youth playing teambuilding games, fellowship games, watching movies with a message that will be discussed, doing mission projects for our church or community, or other special activities. Youth group meets most Sundays at 5:30 pm in the fellowship hall or youth lounge.

All-Conference Jr. High and Sr. High Retreats

Age group: Jr. & Sr. High
Last fall’s retreat was cancelled due to COVID-19, but we hope they will continue this fall. A weekend full of worship that suits you. Worship through current music and messages that are relevant to youth, fellowship, games, activities with other Christians your age — all in a safe environment. Youth also participate in a mission project that weekend.

Fun Activities and Trips

Age group: Jr. & Sr. High
Unfortunately, some of our activities have been cancelled due to COVID-19, but we look forward to our next activities. In the past, activities have included: Peoria Baseball Games; The Escape Room in Springfield; Six Flags; Paintball; Bowling; Frisbee; 9-Square; miniature golf and rock climbing, cookouts, Halloween party and a Christmas Party!

Youth Worship

Age group: Jr. & Sr. High
Each year the youth plan and lead a Sunday worship. This year’s worship, Sunday, January 24, 2021, will be focused on praising God through music as we have been looking at the story behind our favorite hymns and praise songs.

Missions

Age group: Jr. & Sr. High
Mission work whether done for our members, other members of our community, surrounding communities or around our country, is very important to our leaders and youth group.  Jesus has called us to be helpers, clothe the needy, feed the hungry….  “I give you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, so you also must love each other. (John 13:34, New Revised Standard Version).  Sometimes our mission work is done during youth group and other times as special occasions or field/mission trips.
