Our Goal: To come alongside youth and their families so that they may know, love and serve Jesus Christ.
Our Staff: In addition to Junior High Youth Pastor Clay Brisbois, High School Youth Pastor Allie Brisbois, and College Intern Kevin Coogan, we are blessed with a team of loving adults who offer their time and talents in service to youth: Alice, Charlie, Christine, Dave, Jess and Lisa.
Starting Friday, October 10 at 7pm, we are opening the doors of our church to all of our youth and teenagers in the community to play games and have fun. Whether you enjoy sports or board games, you can enjoy a safe evening of fun among friends.
(No more Recreation Nights for 2012, but we will be starting up again January 11, 2013)
We partnered with the Donegal Prebytery joined over a hundred high school students from a dozen local churches to Refreshing Mountain in Stephens, PA for a weekend of crazy games, funny skits, worship music, and engaging speakers. Students had several interesting workshops to choose from to discuss redemptive themes in the TV show "The Walking Dead", "The Hunger Games" trilogy, and the music of Mumford and Sons. And the zip line tour was amazing!

Sixteen 7th-8th grade students and six leaders headed to NorthBay Adventure Camp in Maryland for the Breakaway retreat on the weekend of September 28. The camp is in Maryland on the Chesapeake with some wonderful views of the bay - especially as you are zooming down a zip line! Many of our students starred in a talent show, showing off their comedic and acting skills. We overcame our fears on an alpine swing, roasted marshmallows over a bonfire, and sang praises to our Lord with hundreds of students from all over the Philadelphia area. We were challenged by our speaker to live "recklessly" for Jesus, just like the disciples who left their nets behind and walked on water. It was a great weekend of growing closer to each other and growing closer to Christ.
Pastor Steve held open court for all rising 7th grade students and above, including grads, to come play basketball, kickball, volleyball, and more in the church Gym on Tuesday nights from 7:00pm-8:30pm. This was open to everyone in the church and our community.

At our spring retreat we took all these things to our Lord for healing, restoration, and hope as we remembered the promises of God. He FORGIVES our failings. He SUPPORTS us in our sufferings. He LISTENS to our longings.
