Partner with families to help their youth know Jesus and make Him known.
Refresh Next is our ministry for middle and high school students, 7th grade and up. We are passionate about pursuing Jesus together and offering our students a safe place to discover more about the hope that Jesus offers.
Our aim is to help our youth to develop a strong foundation of faith, equip them with important life skills, and empower them to become compassionate, resilient, and impactful individuals in the world to the glory of God.

What do you believe about discipling and teaching youth?
We believe that 7th-12th graders are very much a part of the life of our church. Just as God values children in his kingdom, we value our youth as the future ministers, preachers, teachers, pastors, deacons, and believers who will take the gospel to their generation and beyond.
So we are excited and will commit to serving them with the strength and wisdom the Lord provides, because we believe the words of Ester 4:14. That we have been raised up “for such a time as this”. Our youth need opportunities to be discipled by mature believers and in the environment with others their age.
What programs do you offer?
Refresh Next Sundays are held at the church in our Refresh Next Room, from 4-6 pm during fall and spring. Our focus for these sessions is connection, tackling relevant topics, discussion based learning, and fellowship.
Wednesdays during the fall and spring we meet in our Refresh Next room during Grow Night (6-8). Our aim for these sessions is theological training, apologetics, and connection.
During the summer (July & August) we meet on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30pm for fun, connection, relevant video content, discussion.
(Food is provided at all of our gatherings.)
