Sunday Mornings >>>

9:45-10:45 a.m: 9-12th graders are encouraged to volunteer as helpers or teachers in our Sunday School program. This has proven to be a great way to strengthen their leadership skills within the faith community and involves them as mentors in the faith formation of younger children.
Worship Services: Students are encouraged to participate in worship services in a variety of capacities, including: assisting as readers, members of the praise band, greeters, ushers, in the tech booth or as Communion Basket Holders.
