"Rescue" Youth Ministry

 "For He has RESCUED us...and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves." Colossians 1:13


Rescue exists to see the lives of youth transformed by Jesus through CONNECTING with God and others, GROWING in their love and trust of Jesus and sharing his love by SERVING others. All youth from 6th-12th grades are welcome! 



Wednesday Evenings (6:30pm-8:00pm) 

We meet in the Youth Room (Room 108 & 109) for our large group gathering. During our time together youth have opportunities to grow and connect with others through fun activities and games. Youth will also have an opportunity to hear a biblical message that is relevant and practical for the needs of today’s youth. All youth grades 6th-12th are welcome. 


Throughout the year we have many engaging fellowship events and activities such as concert trips, retreats, and other experiences that spur on discipleship. 


Sunday Mornings (9:45am) Our Sunday morning small group (Youth Room 108 & 109) is designed to give youth the chance to grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus through times of group discussion. 


For one week every summer we have a unique opportunity to deepen our relationship with Christ and each other in a summer camp experience. The elements and environment we encounter challenge us to pursue Christ and community like never before. 



Once a month a group of youth and adults go to a home to build a wheel chair ramp for a family in need. 


Each Summer we take a trip to serve and express our love and compassion for God and His people. Previous trips have been to New Orleans and St. Louis.
