Youth Discipleship

Sunday, February 7th 2016 6:47 AM


Each year we prayerfully consider whether to host another Youth Bible School. We are very excited about plans for spring of 2016 - only a little over 1 month away! We are anticipating singing, praying, witnessing, fellowshipping, growing & hearing message after message of solid Scriptural teaching

(Sun. eve March 13 through Sat morning, March 19) – “Yet there is room, the feast is spread!”

Applications of married couples willing to participate under the same guidelines as other students will be considered if space is available.

We recognize there may have been misunderstanding about YBS in the past, causing some to feel intimidated, inadequate or even unwelcome to attend. Please knowthat if you have a desire to grow in your walk with Christ you are welcometo apply, it will be our intent to call all of us higher, but not to unnecessarily intimidate anyone.
