Youth Ministries

Sunday night meetings, summer camps, Winter Xtreme trips, and worship band are just a few of the ways for middle school and high school students to make new friends while learning about Jesus. In cooperation with our Youth Director, student leaders help plan and lead fun activities and events that will help you grow your faith.

If you have any questions contact Youth Director Emily Laudenslager at or call 217-352-2240.
