Orchard Youth Ministry

Our Youth Ministry goal is to share Christ with students and to help them grow as disciples in truth and love. We meet, hang out, learn, grow, and love Jesus. Usually, no one gets hurt and often God does amazing stuff. Come join us whether it is at our weekly youth group and small groups, Sunday School, various trips, and camps, or service projects and missions, there is a place for everyone, and we always have a fun and memorable time!

Our youth program is still committed to the students during this time and is working to create unique and safe ways to connect that would not risk exposing people to the Covid-19 virus.

Masks are now optional

Permission Slips

We must have a permission slip in order for your student(s) to participate. These forms must be filled out correctly and turned in prior to or at the first youth group your student(s) attend.

You are Not Alone

We recognize that this season presents certain difficulties, and we as Orchard Youth Leaders are committed to walking with students through these times. If you or your student is having difficulties and need someone to talk to, we are always here to talk, help process, and pray with you!
