YOUTH

Ministry

Discover who they are, discover who God is, grow in faith and learn to live with purpose.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

Life can be full of anxiety and pressure for youth in our community. Many of our youth are incredibly busy with school, activities, friends, and family. In the midst of all that busyness, it can be difficult to find a safe place to pause long enough to discover and grow into the things that matter most in life. Our youth programs provide space for teens in 6th to 12th grade to discover who they are, discover who God is, grow in faith, and learn to live with purpose in our world. 

THERE ARE MANY WAYS FOR YOUTH TO GATHER AND BE PART OF THE COMMUNITY

Serving Others

Our Christian faith calls us to serve others and we take that seriously in our youth ministry. We participate in Good Samaritan’s outreach ministry, Faith in Action, and our youth go on a mission trip each summer to encounter God in other contexts, build relationships with diverse peoples, and put our faith into action. Youth are welcome to help with our Issaquah Meals ministry, by cooking or serving meals on the second Saturday of the month.  Click here to sign up.
 
Youth are also encouraged to host activity stations at our monthly Play and Pray Pizza Nights, an intergenerational gathering where people engage in a variety of offered activities related to a core theme (Play), have a short time of worship (Pray), and then share a meal (Pizza). Our youth have reported that some of the most meaningful gatherings are those that allow them to interact with adults and to serve as members of the church.
