Youth Information Sheet

This is an all-in-one form containing contact information, emergency contact info, allergies, etc.  

This form will travel with us to all of our retreats and be on hand for all of our events.

All youth must fill out this information sheet in order to attend a retreat and/or mission trip.


6th graders will have the opportunity to serve as Acolytes for the 2019-2020 year.

Training is at 10:00am Sunday September 8th in the Sanctuary. 

For the first few months, they will shadow the 7th graders so they have guidance throughout the worship service.

Adult Volunteers

We couldn't do anything without the awesome leadership of adult youth counselors.  

All youth counselors must be Safe Sanctuary Trained & Approved by Background Check in order to work with our youth.

Please sign up to be a youth counselor for youth events, or to provide a meal this fall.

When providing a meal, please prepare for 40-50 youth.  The church provides plates, cups, napkins & utensils.

Youth Music Opportunities

If you would like to be involved in worship with reading Scripture, singing, playing an instrument, or by being involved in our drama department, we have a place for you!  Please contact Saxon, Susan, and/or Aaron if you are interested.
