Youth Ministry

Our Redeemer’s youth ministry focuses on building a caring community of teenagers who love God and love each other. We provide various large group and small group activities designed to deepen and challenge faith and to create fellowship within the Body of Christ. We believe, however, the strength of our ministry lies in the personal relationships that exist between youth and leaders. A committed group of volunteer leaders seeks to be actively involved in the lives of every youth, and all activities are designed with the intent to strengthen these relationships.

We hope that through the community, faith will grow and youth and their leaders will all fall more in love with Jesus Christ. Our Redeemer’s youth ministry is committed to:

  • Worship: our desire is to lead youth into the presence of God.
  • Fellowship: our desire is to grow a community of believers who truly care for each other.
  • Discipleship: our desire is to collaborate with parents to grow the next generation of believers in Jesus Christ.
  • Service: our desire is to serve each other and those around us through the love of Christ.
  • Missions: Annual mission trips for youth. Past trips have included Tijuana, Mexico; Blackfeet Reservation, Montana; Vancouver, British Columbia; and Arecibo, Puerto Rico.

Middle School Youth

Worship on Wednesdays
Worship on Wednesdays or W.O.W. is a worship service designed with youth in mind. It combines worship music led by the rocking awesome high-school WOW band, crazy skits, sermons focused on Jesus and Christian basics, prayers, and Holy Communion with over 200 people joining in worshiping and learning about the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Come and see what the Spirit is doing here!

WOW! starts off each Wednesday evening with a dynamic worship service with music led by high school students.  The lessons during worship address everyday life questions like “how do I live in dangerous times?” “what’s important in my life?” and “do I want too much?” through classic Christian texts like the Lord’s Prayer and the Ten Commandments.  Immediately following worship the students split into small groups led by faith-filled adults where the teachings come to life.

WOW Schedule
6:30 pm – Worship
7:15 pm – Small Groups for Middle School students
8:00 pm – Departure
