Sunday Gatherings

Youth will explore and live into this theme throughout United Youth during 2022-2023. "Everything Flows From Here." In the human body, the heart is essential for living. The beat of the heart is proof and evidence that you are still alive. Yet as Christians we don't just have a human heart that produces physical life. We each also have a spiritual heart that produces spiritual life. This year's United Youth theme is centered around Proverbs 4:23. Right out the gate, this verse highlights the importance of the heart by instructing each of us to guard it. With our hearts at the center of our decision-making, you might be wondering why we should guard our hearts? According to Proverbs, everything you do flows from it.

About United Youth

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things." - Philippians 4:8

The heart refers to your mind and your will. If we follow the directions of Philippians and think on these types of things it will influence our actions. We will not only guard our hearts but we will see a difference in everything we do.

Offering Christian Community

We are created for relationships. From the very beginning, God told us that it’s not good for us to be alone. And we want to host a safe/fun place for teenagers to explore their faith relationships with Jesus Christ, their peers, and adult mentors.

Small Groups

Discipleship is possibly the most important practice of the church. Our small groups are designed to give teenagers the space needed to practice living out their created identity. We want to see what our teens will do in that space. We love watching students do amazing things because they are figuring out who they are in Christ.
But don’t take our word for it. Here for yourself from teens in our group.
If your teen is interested in joining one of our Sunday night Small Groups, please contact a member or our youth ministry staff team or register on the link below.
