Youth & Family Ministry

  Youth and families are the focus of our mission at St. Paul's. Monthly events and activities are planned to engage youth and children in their Christian peer groups. All youth are invited to participate in activities for pleasure alongside events that expand their relationship with Jesus Christ.  When you see "SPY", that means "St. Paul's Youth"!  Read more about our Youth & Family Minister, Mike Zimmerman on the Church Leadership page.  

SPY Gatherings

This years theme will be "Live Fearless".  There are multiple service projects scheduled in the church and the community.  We want you to be fearless and take Jesus with you wherever you go.  We want you to be good stewards of this church and the community.  Every study we focus on, every gathering we experience, every time you are a part of this group, Live Fearless.
