Encounter (Youth Group)
6-8pm, Fellowship Hall & Great Hall
Food ($3), Fun & Faith

Snack Supper will be held in the Fellowship Hall, followed by Youth Group in the Great Hall.

Encounter is the new name that has been chosen for Youth Group.
The purpose of Encounter is to expose our students to a non-threatening church environment that is energizing and fun while still introducing students to Christ. This is a time when we incorporate the overall vision of the church of Worship, Connect and Serve. We do this by building relationships through sharing a $3 meal together in the Fellowship Hall. After dinner, we move to the Great Hall to participate in games and other activities before worshiping together. Our Student Leaders have an opportunity to serve during Encounter as well as all students during Encounter Serve and Encounter Off Campus.
Come join us any Sunday night from 6-8pm!

Each Encounter Serve and Encounter Off Campus looks different depending on the night. For information regarding these nights, please check the website, our social media updates an the Student Ministry News emails or contact
