5TH GRADERS – 9TH GRADERS
AT THE 9:00 AND 10:30 SERVICE
The acolyte’s primary responsibility is assisting with communion. When an acolyte is scheduled and is not present it may disrupt the worship service. Acolytes benefit from this ministry in several ways:
- They may be participating in a service they are unfamiliar with and thus have an opportunity to see and experience a different side of worship
- “Serve” and thus be on “the other side” of things during worship which reinforces the concept that they are partners in the ministry
- Opportunity to connect with the Lord as well.
Confirmands can also sign up to read scripture, usher, or be greeters with their families. Students can also serve as crucifers or communion helpers on festival Sundays such as Easter or Christmas. Additionally, if you notice that an acolyte is not present during a service you can offer to assist, please ask Pastor or worship leadership if you can assist by lighting candles, or helping with communion.

5th & 6th Grade
SAME FORMAT - NEW CURRICULUM!
Preteens are at a pivotal point in their faith. They want to talk about faith but may lack the confidence to jump in. They’re eager to connect and make a difference but aren’t sure how. BE BOLD helps navigate those waters by facilitating meaningful discussion and Bible exploration. It’s not about having all the answers – it’s about being willing to listen to kids and explore what Scripture has to say. BE BOLD turns questions into action and helps kids make a difference. They will experience the impact of faith in action through service to others. Our preteens will also be reviewing their Faith Stepping Stones as they prepare for 7th grade confirmation.
We’re excited to be part of the “wonderment” with our kids!
Check out the bulletin and e-news for locations and more details for our Sunday, August 4th kickoff!

Wednesday night 6-7:30 is youth group night for all youth 7-12th grade...
**We could use 1 or 2 more adult leaders during this event.** We meet every Wednesday for fun and fellowship (unless otherwise noted on the youth calendar). our contemporary music leader, has been introducing our time together with 15 minutes of music and worship. Our senior high youth leadership team, C.R.E.W. ends many of the evenings with a brief testimony. This is a wonderful way to take a short break mid-week and join your fellow Christian friends for fun and fellowship! It is also a great way to make new friends. Feel free to invite others. The more the merrier!!
Sounds of Salvation, the Youth Praise Team, is open to all junior and high school students who are interested in sharing their musical talents to assist with leading worship. Throughout the year, youth will have the opportunity to perform special music and intermittently lead worship at our 9am service. Rehearsals are from 5:30pm-6pm on Wednesday evenings. Contact Jung Csuy at for more information.
Our kids are awesome and they are doing amazing things!
