VICTORY LIFE YOUTH

Pointing youth to Jesus who can rewrite every life story

Youth Nights
Sundays | 6-8pm

Victory Life Youth is the place to be on Sunday nights! Our group is made up of 7th-12th graders. We start the night playing some crazy games and watching student-made, hilarious announcement videos. Then we move into worship with three songs and a 20-minute teaching time. We take a break and enjoy some pop and snacks and then we end the night with small groups and free time for students to hang out. Students are always welcome to bring friends. Come check us out on a Sunday night!

Youth Night Events
One Sunday every other month 6-9pm

Every other month we have an event right after youth night. It might be a campfire with a S’more buffet, Water Wars outside in the summer, or a Christmas party! It’s a great time to bring friends who are new to church. We have a bunch of fun at these events and we also present the gospel and give students a chance to respond.

Summer Camp
and Mission Trips

Every summer we give students opportunities to go to summer camps and mission trips. We believe these mountain-top experiences are extremely valuable for students’ growth as believers in Jesus and also as young adults.

Small Groups, Big Impact.

We want youth to embrace community with one another and caring Christian leaders. We use small groups as the vehicle to get us there. Students break into small groups as part of their weekly Youth Night experience. They chat about what’s going on in their lives, respond to the sermon, share prayer requests, and pray together.

Upcoming Events

Summer Camp

We believe mountain-top events like summer camp are key to the spiritual development of our students. We have had fantastic experiences at summer camp these past two years. Students were inspired by engaging worship and practical teaching aimed at their generation. They participated in tournaments of various kinds and really bonded as a group. Most importantly, we saw incredible spiritual growth on an individual basis. We are excited to see how the Lord will continue to use our summer camp ministry.

Honduras Mission Trip
July 6-13th

Our youth group will be taking a trip down to Honduras to serve alongside longtime missionaries there next summer. We are excited to learn about serving the Lord in a new environment, experience the global church, and receive training for a lifetime of kingdom work. This trip will also be run by Christ in Youth (CIY) through their Engage program.

Paint Wars Youth Night
August 18th | 6-9pm

Get ready for a wild and colorful night! We will play games outside with watered-down paint! It’s  going to be EPIC! 

Hear Their
Testimonies

Being in a youth group has been a really great experience for me. Being with other Christians every week is really encouraging. It helps me to grow in my relationship with God and others. One thing that helped me grow the most was the CIY retreat we went on this past summer. That trip helped me to not only grow my relationship with God, but helped me to make great friends that help me in that relationship almost everyday. It is really encouraging to know that I can go to others in my youth group with any struggles and prayer requests that I have and they will pray for me, send me Bible verses, and let me know that they care about me. We also have a lot of fun together. It is amazing to get to spend time every week having fun and growing closer to God with friends.

Although I haven’t been apart of the Victory Life Youth for very long it has made a pretty big impact on my life. When first coming to youth group I only knew one person, but now I can confidently say that I know and am friends with pretty much everybody there. They were all so sweet and made me feel so welcomed! Since coming to youth I have made so many new strong friendships, have strengthened my faith with the Lord so much, got the opportunity to join a Bible study, and even did things that were a little out of my comfort zone. Even though I haven’t gotten to experience any of the big events or retreats youth has still impacted me so much and I look forward to it every Sunday night. Everybody there truly do feel like a second family to and I know that if I am ever struggling with my faith or need prayed for for something any/all of them will be willing to help! Overall I’m so glad to be apart of the Victory Life Youth and I can’t wait to experience so many more life changing things!

This is the best group of friends I’ve ever met. I am so thankful for having friends to hang with, have fun with, and get to know Jesus with. I love our youth group so much, and I’m excited for what’s to come!
