Elevate Youth Family

Welcome to Elevate Youth Family! We are a group of students (Grades 7-12) and adults that meet consistently to grow together as a family. We are all learning how to become more like Christ. We are also learning what it means to serve him, the church, and the world. Our goal is to train students to become like Christ and to serve Him throughout their entire life.  We don't want students just to attend youth group.  We want them to connect to a church family where they can belong and serve!

Some of the ways we accomplish this is through weekly services, small groups, service opportunities, overseas missions trips, camps, retreats, etc. We also love hanging out with each other and sharing life together. We want to become a family and fun is definitely part of that. Throughout the year we will have some events that are always a blast. Some of these are Riot Night, Life-Sized Game Night, Bon Fires, paintball events, mini-golf events, etc.

Our main meeting is on Fridays from 7p.m. to 10p.m. We spend part of our time in the gymnasium and part of our time in the Upper Room. If you come on a Friday you can expect that we would have plenty of time to hang out and catch up with each other. We also take some time to play some crazy games together. On Fridays we also have our main youth service. We spend some time worshiping the Lord and then we explore God’s Word to see how we should live our lives today. Occasionally on Fridays we break into small groups to discuss our spiritual walk on a deeper level.

There is always something going on. I hope that you can come on out and be a part of the family.
