Teens are active members of the Our Saviour's community and develop a stronger faith by participating in the life of the church.
Our ministries strive to walk beside youth in an authentic way that confronts the challenges they face on a daily basis. We seek to live, learn, and lead together as disciples in the real world.
Our Junior High and High School ministries include:
- Confirmation (Surge)
- High School Youth Group (Ignition)
- Mission trips, retreats, and other special events
- Worship leadership
- Volunteer opportunities
- Music and arts opportunities
It’s not too late to join!
