Youth and Young Adult Ministries

"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity." 1 Timothy 4:12 (NIV)

At West Side, we don't just believe that youth and young adults are the future of our church ... we believe that they are the church TODAY! We have fun, vibrant programming for our young people, centered on discipling them for lives committed to Christ-likeness, and we invite all young people to be a part of it!

Our youth group is geared toward students in the middle and high school grades, including sixth grade. Students participate in an interactive Bible study during our Sunday school hour at 9:30 a.m. each week. On Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m., the youth group meets for in-depth study about a variety of issues in Scripture. It's amazing to see how deeply our youth dive into the Word and to watch how these young people grow in knowledge.

Our young adult group is for high school graduates, college students and other young adults, including young married couples. This group meets on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. for Bible study. The young adults and youth group often get together for events. This gives them the opportunity for extended fellowship, friendship and mentoring.

Our youth participate in a variety of activites throughout the year, including summer camp, Celebrate Life (a district-wide and regional athletic, academic and fine arts competition), Teen Bible Quizzing, lock-ins and many more activities. We also encourage our youth to become active volunteers in the church. Our youth are involved in a number of capacities, including children's ministries, music, media for worship services and more.

We have an outstanding group of youth and young adults who love meeting new people and making new friends. Come join us and see what they're all about!
