Saints youth are prepared to transition into Junior Youth Group. The Saints have one event per month most of the year and several projects during the school year. (Contact: Cindy Riddell)
Junior Youth Group provides 7th and 8th graders a way to be active in the church, to learn about Christ, His church, living as a Christian, and serving others inside and outside the church. This group of young people is an integrated part of the church and school. The church and school have the responsibility to help them grow in Christ to become fruitful members of the congregation and community. Our seventh and eighth graders can be leaders in the church now and certainly are our future leaders. In conjunction with parents, the church has the responsibility to help them grow spiritually, emotionally, and socially. With this balance and a sound foundation in Christ, we’ll have committed and strong leaders for the church of tomorrow. (Contact: Toni Kreis)
