Tip of the Week

I know it’s still the beginning of the school year, but can we talk about longevity for a second? Here’s the truth: youth ministry isn’t always fun or easy.

Volunteer of the Week

Rachel Klaers

There are people you can rely on to take care of things that need to be taken care of, and then there are people like Rachel, who constantly take the initiative to go above and beyond in order to serve our students and our church. In addition to being a great Small Group Leader, Rachel’s work extends to the stage with the hours and hours of work that she puts into our seasonal productions. Our church is so much more fun with Rachel around.

Thank you for all you do, Rachel!

Question of the Week

We might be a youth ministry, but youths aren’t our only priority. I’d love to hear how I can better serve you too, so I’d love it if you’d complete a quick survey so that I can learn from you.
