During the school year, each Wednesday of the month emphasizes a different, yet important, way to seek God and be in community. Junior High (grades 6-8) and Senior High (grades 9-12) remain split. The panel to the right details the basic format for Wednesday nights when school is in session.
When the summer hits, youth leaders and church members clean their pools and open their homes to the youth. This is a very relaxed environment in which swimming, games, and a lesson all occur. A youth leader is always present to monitor, and help the host family.
* See the church calendar for information about where each Hangout is held.
A strong group of committed adult volunteers help organize and lead regular events throughout the year. Typically, one event is formally scheduled per month for each junior high and senior high (as shown in the general table on each of their web pages).
