Our Thursday Youth Program, known as t.y.p., is for our children ages 4 through the 6th grade and is in session from September through May.  We meet every Thursday (except holidays) from 4:15 to 6:45 pm and the children participate in a multi-level program which includes:

  • Choirs for all ages                                                                          
  • Disciple forming classes for each age level
  • Mission projects for all ages:
    • CROP Walk,
    • Nothing But Nets,
    • Shoes4theShoeless
    • Book drives
  • Family style meal for everyone, including any family’s who want to join us

The ministry of t.y.p. focuses on the spiritual practices of becoming a disciple of Jesus, such as prayer, generosity and acts of kindness.  The 4 year olds through Kindergarteners are a part of The Angels; the 1st-3rd grade children sing with the Salt Choir; and the Light Choir involves the 4th-6th graders.  The Salt & Light Choir participate in Worship each month and The Angels participate in Worship 5 times throughout the year; and all choirs participate in the annual Christmas Pageant.

The only cost to participate in t.y.p. is the meal each week, which is $2.00 per person.  Children can participate in t.y.p. anytime throughout the year, and visitors are always welcome!  The weekly schedule is as follows:

4:00-4:15 pm     Children arrive for opening activities and snacks.

4:15 – 4:30 pm   Gathering time, worship and prayer

4:30 – 6:15 pm    Age appropriate classes and choirs
