Youth Ministries

Sunday School

Sundays, September - April at 10:45 AM

Preschool & Elementary Classes
We meet in the Blue Room (East Basement) for songs, crafts, or large group discussion before breaking up into age groups. Our faithful and dedicated Sunday School teachers will teach children the building blocks of faith through using “Spark” curriculum, activities and Bible study. If you are a visitor, please stop by the Christian Education Office, in the basement, to register. For more information, contact our Director of Faith Formation, Wanda Stelk.

Middle School Class
Students in 6th through 8th grade participate in a DVD-based study with adult leaders. Our curriculum is “Connect”, a faith-formation series for youth. Middle school meets in the youth room (West Basement).

YOW (Youth on Wednesday)

YOW is our mid-week ministry for 3-12th Grade. It is held on Wednesday evenings starting at 6:00, September through April generally following the Grand Island Public Schools calendar for holidays and days off. When there is no school there is no YOW. Many adult volunteers make YOW an intergenerational, relationship-building ministry. The YOW schedule includes:

For Preschool to 5th Grade

  • Family Time
    Where children share a meal with two table parents and their “table family” . They enjoy a family-style meal, including dessert, and enjoy visiting together. This is an amazing experience for the kids and adults as they build relationships with one another through Christ.
  • Game & Craft
    From 6:30 to 7:00
  • Worship Skills
    From 7:00 to 7:30. Preschool-5th grade will come together in the chapel to sing, read scripture and pray. This is a great time of worship and learning worship skills together.

For 6th to 12th Grade

  • Eat a dinner together with youth leader
    6:00 to 6:30
  • Youth Group
    6:30 to 7:00
