High School

We equip young people with the tools to establish a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ. We strive for a Christ centered life through fellowship, service, study, and worship. Romans 12:2 says we are not to conform to the ways of the world but to be transformed by God. We are high school students in pursuit of this counter cultural message. We meet to strengthen our relationship with Jesus Christ through Bible study, worship, and fellowship with the goal of loving God and loving others.
