Youth Ministry

Candlewood Youth Ministry

Making genuine followers of Jesus Christ from those in grades 6-12

And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. Acts 2:42

It’s the teenagers themselves that makes our youth group so special.  Each and every member brings something unique to the table that makes us stronger as a whole.  We grow closer to Jesus through the study and discussion of His Word.  You’ll find a welcoming and loving atmosphere where questions are encouraged.  We also learn to be more like Jesus in our love for one another.  Relationships are fostered though prayer, caring for each other’s needs and breaking bread.  We also make it a point to have fun!  We play all sorts of games from, “drawsome” to manhunt and dream up new adventures like hunting for a skunk-ape (the Florida Sasquatch).

We understand that teenagers are in a critical stage in their lives.  We aren’t looking to insulate them from the world.  Rather, we are looking to shape them into ambassadors for Christ going out into the world.
