Youth Ministry Summer

It takes 72 hours for a group to form. That means if you want to feel at home in the youth group it requires showing up- both for yourself and for one another. Summer trips are undoubtedly the best way to grow together in faith. It’s on summer trips that walls fall. It’s on summer trips that some of our most formative faith experiences are had and we get to that point where you’re so tired that everything is funny.

Trip registration closes May 1, and the earlier you sign up, the more helpful it is for our trip planning!

To save your spot on a trip, you must register below and pay your trip deposit. The remaining money is due one month before the start of the trip.

Additionally, please know that there are scholarship funds available for every trip and summer program. If your family needs financial assistance, please contact 
Sarah Are at for more information.

We never want finances to prevent a child or youth from experiencing one of these formative faith experiences!
