Youth

Sr. High Grades 9–12  &  Jr. High Grades 6-8

A place to belong and grow.

At Living Word, your teenager will find themselves in a dynamic environment from the moment they set their foot in the door. From the lounge and café to the basketball court and sanctuary, teens can let down their guard and know that they are in a place where there’s no judgment and they can be themselves.

They will be challenged by the Word, encouraged to learn and to grow, and prompted to see themselves as God sees them. They will learn to walk with Jesus, to trust Him, to see Him in action, and have a blast doing it!

By the time they graduate, they will be able to know why they believe in the Lord, and will see themselves as disciples of Christ. Our youth services includes dynamic worship and a powerful message followed by group discussion. This is a time when students can have fun, make great friends, and grow in their relationships with God.
