YOUTH REASON TOGETHER (YRT)

We use reasoning to follow our faith and we have a reason to be together as Christians!

"Youth Reason Together" our youth group for 7th graders and up meets the last Sunday of each month at 6:00 PM for a time of  fun along with a time for talking about how our faith impacts our personal lives. There are separate high school and middle school groups broken out for this time of faith and learning. 

 

YRT youth also plan and participate in monthly events such as Church Service Projects, Retreats, Game and Movie Nights; Snow Tubing, Amusement Parks and other fun activities.
