Our youth and singles ministries are also examples of how we grow through small groups. Neither take the place of our community groups but are tailored teaching and interactive contexts to help meet the specific needs of parents and their youth ("Catalyst Youth Ministry") and singles ("Equip Ministry").
Our youth ministry, called "Catalyst,"is designed for parents and their 12-18 year old children. Our desire is to build our youth into their parents and help equip our parents to be able to spiritually engage and disciple their youth.
We also desire to serve parents by providing a youthful and interactive environment where students can socially relate to and serve alongside other youth in the church (and reach out to youth who may not have any parental church involvement).
We host two monthly meetings and plan special, annual events such as student conferences, campouts, and/or summer mission trips.
David and Melinda have been leading Catalyst since 2011. They have four active young children and a passion for discipleship. They do their best to act like grown-ups, but spend most of their free time playing music, training for mud-runs, or making goofy jokes (while Melinda rolls her eyes).
They are joined by pastor (and parent of three teens), Corey Schmatjen, who teaches at Catalyst and helps oversee this ministry.
Fusion Youth-Parent Meeting
This interactive meeting is intended to equip parents and teens through teaching, discussion and off-the-wall games. We encourage parents to stick around and engage with their teens.
When: 2nd FRIDAY OF EACH MONTH @ 7:30 PM
Radiate Youth Outreach
Through outreach events and service projects, students are challenged to take ownership of their faith and their church. Parents are welcome to come, but are not required to stay.
When: 4th FRIDAY OF EACH MONTH @ 7:30 PM (Date and time may vary)
Our purpose is to equip our members for fruitful ministry to God and so our singles ministry seeks to do just that while acknowledging the unique opportunities this season of life affords. Our monthly gatherings are led by our pastor, Al Pino, and his wife, Desi. We meet on the 2nd SUNDAY OF EACH MONTH @ 1:00PM.
