We are a mission oriented church and youth regularly participate in church wide mission projects and ministries.
Youth have accompanied adults on mission trips (i.e. helping at a Detroit Community Center in their summer program, the church's annual day of sharing with the West Point, KY community) and are also involved in local ministries such as assisting in the church's Adopt-a-Spot Highway Pick-Up, helping at the soup kitchen, etc.
This year, our youth had opportunities to participate in a 3-day ski retreat at Perfect North, a mini-mission weekend in Owensboro, and a two-day retreat that included ziplining and team building in Indiana and Frankfort. Playing Underground Church has become a favorite activity for our young people.
Other events are scheduled on a regular basis so youth can maintain a sense of fellowship and connectedness. The Sunday morning Bible Study time is often conducted at a local restaurant to allow for a more informal atmosphere.
A Graduate Recognition Breakfast is held each spring in honor of our seniors who graduate from high school and college.
The Youth Ministry exists to help youth develop a growing relationship with God through their discipleship to Jesus Christ engaging them in service to Christ’s cause in the world.
