Youth Group

Bible Studies are currently taking online – contact Molly Farrin at for more information.

St. John’s youth group is all about fun, faith and service. We are an active youth ministry that focuses on community service and outreach. We offer a fun, safe environment for middle and high school youth to learn and grow in Christ. Our youth group is a place where you can hang out, have fun with friends and be yourself without worrying about judgment or peer pressure.

We believe that God has given us all unique gifts and has a plan for each young life, so we offer programs to help guide kids in their faith and live out God’s will. Our “Friends in Faith” have the opportunity to choose from a variety of monthly activities including weekly Bible studies, fun outings, community service events, and food & fun nights. We have something for everyone and friends are always welcome!
