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!
