For the Youth in our program who desire to grow closer to Christ while experiencing Christian fellowship with kids of a similar age, we have small group Bible studies. These take place weekly on Sunday in the Youth House. We have multiple groups that include our youth for both girl and boys and both Junior and Senior High School. The focus of these exciting groups is to deepen the understanding of the Bible and how to use it as a teaching tool in our lives.
