Middle and high school students join us each Sunday! We’ll start in the sanctuary with the rest of the church for the beginning of the worship service and and when the younger children head out to Faith Hall, the youth will head over to the Center for Spiritual Renewal (CSR). This will be a time to go deeper into the scripture and in our faith.
