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 Pastor, student leaders help plan and lead fun activities and events that will help you grow your faith.

Kamp Koinonia is designed to help Gen Z connect on a deeper level than a “like” or the amount of times their snap story has been viewed.
