Jr. High Youth Group

Our Jr. high youth group is geared for incoming 7th and 8th grade students who would like to build their faith and to grow in friendship with fellow teens. It is engaging and fun, bringing our faith to life! Once a month, we will have L.I.F.T. Nights where the high school and jr. high youth groups come together for a night of energy and community, revolving around a particular theme each month. We encourage all 7th and 8th graders to sign up for this wonderful group!


Upcoming Teen Events:
