Youth ministry at the Kirk provides a welcoming and affirming space for teens to grow in community and their faith. Humans were created for connection, so even during a time of COVID, we strive to provide avenues for connection in safe and unique ways. We are a group committed to responding to God’s love through worship, study, service, and play!

We connect as a group, but we also care for your individual needs. If you are struggling in any way and would like to talk with a pastor or other adult church member, contact Pastor Kelsey at .

The Oasis

The Oasis is a new ministry that aims to provide mindfulness resources and healthy outlets for stress in teenagers. Our team of adult and student leaders have been working hard to prepare for Phase 1 of opening.

For more information about this exciting new ministry, contact Pastor Kelsey.
