Each Wednesday night through the school year we have KIDZ 4 CHRIST and TEENZ 4 CHRIST youth ministries. I would like to introduce you to our awesome group of volunteers that will be working with your children and give you a brief description of what they do.
Our Club Coordinators are Shannon and Catrina Chester. They make sure everything runs smoothly and efficently. Our volunteer staff of over 40 leaders makes this ministry possible, but Shannon and Catrina's dedication makes it all come together.
Laten Strough is our official door greeter, but is always willing to jump in and do whatever is needed.

This group of guys make sure that we maintain a safe and secure environment.
For your convenience, we have a drop off and pick up area for children so you don’t even have to get out of the vehicle. Of course, you are always welcome to come in if you would like. They will make sure your child gets safely from your vehicle into the building and back again.

Each week Lynae and her crew prepare a meal for the youth and the leaders. The Teenz (6th-12th grade) begin eating at 5:30 and the Kidz (PreK-5th grade) begin eating at 5:45. Adults can eat any time between 5:30-6:00.
Shannon and Miss Verna open up our playground for the Kidz from 5:30 to 5:45 each Wednesday night.(weather permitting)
KIDZ 4 CHRIST LEADERS

Each week Kidz earn points for various things. They can save them up or once a month they can come see Courtney Bland at the Good News Stand and purchase items with their points.

TEENZ 4 Christ LEADERS

In a society that teaches youth to think secularly, John and Krista Beck challenge these young minds to think from a Biblical viewpoint.

Becky Kelley, Austin and Lexie Fleetwood, and Tyler and MaKenzie Brown make sure these young men and women have a faith that is strong and is based in the strength of God’s Word. Helping them to seek God’s will for their lives as they start to have to make important life decisions for themselves.
