Encounter Youth

Encounter is for students in grades 6-12.

Encounter exists that a generation would LOVE Jesus.

Wednesday Nights

Every Wednesday from 6:30-8pm we meet in an environment that is high energy, fun, and safe. Students are able to connect with other students, but, more importantly they connect with Jesus. We worship our Savior and hear a message from God’s Word, as we are challenged and encouraged to KNOW Jesus and SHARE Jesus. 

Small Groups

Every Sunday from 6-8pm students will have time to connect with other students, play games, eat food, and have a group discussion as we pursue a loving relationship with Jesus. This summer small groups are located in the church backyard (240 Spates Ave).


We provide the opportunity for students to be matched with an adult mentor. Our mentors will offer wisdom, guidance, and support as they lead our students into loving Jesus on a deeper level.
