Kids & Youth Club

Kids Clubs are designed for children ages 4–10 and are held weekly after school. During June and July we expand our program to three days a week at both centers. Kids Club provides a fun and safe environment for children to play games, do crafts, listen to and discuss a Bible story, and experience praise and worship through action-based songs. Volunteers can lead or assist with activities, as well as share the hope of Christ by being present and involved in children’s lives.

Youth Club meets each week and is for students ages 10–17. Our youth love to play soccer, basketball, and dodgeball. Computers, video games, board games, and crafts are also available. A Christ-centered Bible study is taught by our staff. Our youth take various outings throughout the year as a reward for attendance, good behavior, and participation in program activities. This includes day trip and summer camp.

Small group discipleship is a key part of our ministry with youth at both centers. This is led by volunteers and staff on an ongoing basis. Through this program youth who choose to participate learn how to have a deeper relationship with God, pray for their friends, and have opportunity to give back by serving in other ministry programs.
