We encourage our kids and families to partner with all of the various youth group programs and activities as a fun, dynamic, engaging way of bringing others to begin or deepen a relationship with Jesus. Our Youth Programs also strive to connect youth to Christian adults who care for them and are invested to mentor and guide the growth in their faith walk.
Leaders and youth gather to build relationships with Christ and each other. Lessons focus on realistic applications of Scripture to everyday life.

Connecting People to Life in Jesus through Home Groups
Through Home Groups you are invited to share the love, truth, and hope that come to all through faith in Jesus Christ. Home Groups exist to nurture that relationship with Jesus Christ and to help grow His disciples. Growing in a caring Home Group community setting with Christ at the center can be transforming!
There are three areas of emphasis for each Home Group:
- Connecting with Family— Home groups are where Christ centered love and care for one another happens. These are friends that you can grow, laugh and serve with.
- Connecting with God—Through reading and discussing the Bible, the group grows in discipleship, growing as Jesus’ disciples in everyday life. – Through prayer and worship the group connects with God and expresses care for one another.
- Connecting with Community—Home groups are encouraged to be purposeful in outreach by serving the physical, emotional, or spiritual needs of others. Service projects can be done by the group together or by individuals in their normal everyday life situations.
If you would like to get connected with a Home Group please contact Pastor Eric or Tony Cizel.
Sports Ministries provide a great opportunity for developing relationships with a variety of individuals. We welcome guests from the community as well as members to participate.

Fostering Growth in Parenting and Wholeness as Women
Mom's Connection is a Biblically-based parenting program designed around the Titus 2:4 concept of older women teaching and encouraging younger women in their relationships with their husbands and children.
If you are a mom with children from infancy through adolescence, please join us. Our mission is to:
“… educate, encourage and equip women for the most important job in all the world – parenting."
Through practical, teaching on parenting from our core curriculum and guest speakers, as well as through small group interaction guided by “Titus 2” women after the Titus 2:4 Biblical model, we foster growth not only in our parenting skills but in our wholeness as women - intellectuallyrelationally and spiritually.
Mom's Connection is “seeker friendly,” progressing from universally held “felt needs” of moms to gradually deepening spiritual foundations. The program is designed to allow entrance into it at any part of the series, so new members are always invited.
