Nooma Videos

This year the youth are starting to watch the series "Nooma"by theologian Rob Bell. They are 5-15 minute videos that help start youth to question application of faith in their everyday life.


New Youth Format

After watching the movie together, the youth split up by grade level (junior high and senior high) to continue to talk about application in ways that relate to their age level.

Parents, keep an eye on the youth Facebook page as events and signups will be posted on there!


If you have any questions please contact the church office or talk to Pastor Cody!


The youth will be going to Redemption House in Harrisburg on Friday, November 9th. Please meet at the church at 6:00. Please respond to the event on the youth Facebook page so we can get an idea of how many are going. We will go out to eat afterwards.
