  •  Rite 13: All youth in 6th through 8th grade are welcome to join the "Rite13" Youth Group.  Throughout the year as we grow together and discover God's love, we'll form a tight community, explore the important real world issues that matter to us, and support one another through laughter, celebration, service, and excursions. 
  • J2A: Teens in 9th through 12th grade should come join our family each week as we Journey to Adulthood!  The path to being an adult is filled with all kinds of incredible opportunities to discover who you are, figure out how to make your mark on the world, and nurture lifelong friendships.  Join us as we do all that and more with one another in a fun and loving group.

Both Rite 13 and J2A meet immediately following the service for coffee and community/snacks/conversation.
