Celebrate YOUTH is a dynamic ministry for your student in 6th-12th grade. We meet every Wednesday night at Celebrate Sycamore and Celebrate Meadows. Doors open at 6:30pm, and service is from 7-8:30pm. At Celebrate YOUTH we merge faith and fun! Students experience an engaging live band, hear messages that discuss relevant topics, and interact with other students and adults who truly care about their lives.
Throughout the year we also have guest bands and speakers, retreats, summer camp, and all sorts of fun events!
Small Groups are designed to help students build relationships, grow in their faith, and experience genuine Christian community. Groups begin mid-October, and we've included a sign-up process to help every student find the perfect Group. Normal YOUTH services are from 7-8pm on Wednesdays, and Groups meet from 8-8:30pm.
• Small Groups are separated by age and gender.
• Every Small Group is matched with same-sex adult leaders.
• Same Groups meet every week. This enables students to build personal relationships and experience Christian community.
