Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.
The youth is our future. And what better way to ensure our future than to teach and guide our youth.
In today's world, our children are not only exposed to peer pressures but to things through the media, that are merely to attract attention in any way that works. For this reason, we give special attention to our youth. Our goal is to teach them such values as Jesus says, that it is better to give than receive, giving them the opportunity to be active in church and vesper services. As a church, we feel that with the right guidance, nurturing and a lot of love, we can help the youth through some of the most trying time in life...the teen years.
