Program Goal

Our goal for Youth Ministry at Church of the Savior is, by God’s grace and with the assistance of His Spirit, to assist parents in nurturing faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior in the heart of each young person with whom we come in contact.

Also, we strive to build a sense of community among our youth, as well as a sense of belonging to and being part of the larger family of faith here at Church of the Savior and around the world.  These goals are ever-present in our thoughts and prayers as we plan and conduct all areas of our youth ministry activities and programs.

Ways our young people are serving the Lord –

  • CROP Walk – to fight hunger
  • “Souper Bowl” food and funds collection to fight hunger
