The main focus of our youth ministry is service. Let there be no mistake, though, we also really value FUN!! We have retreats, campouts, we paintball, we play hide-n-go seek, kickball, we slack line, swim, snowboard, get lost in corn mazes, sell Christmas trees, have Holiday extravaganzas, go caroling, four square, nine square in the air, attend concerts and almost all of these include feasting!!!
Our regular times of meeting begin on Sunday mornings at 9:00am, gathering in the "Upper Room" for a social time, eating donuts, playing air hockey, foosball, listening to music, and hanging out. At 9:30 we divide up into classes that discuss biblical principles and life application. The class divisions are middle school, and high school. Wednesday nights we meet at the church at 6:30 for family dinner and then divide up into groups for Bible study.
Two very important main events for this group are Winter Retreat and Summer Camps. Winter retreat is in February. It begins on a Thursday afternoon and ends on Sunday evening. It's an extended weekend at White Pass full of activities, awesome worship through music and incredible spirit filled speakers. Oh and again FOOD.
Summer camps are hosted by WaPac (Washington Pacific district) and are held in July and August each summer.
