Youth

Summitview’s teen family ministry is a community of families with middle and high schoolers helping each other to “press on toward the goal of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14). Want to to stay updated on meetings and activities? Subscribe to the Youth email >>

A Community of Parents

First, this includes a community of parents supporting each other through all the complexities of raising teenagers. Youth ministry isn’t only about ministering to youth. It’s also about helping parents to love and disciple their kids by the grace of God. Often this happens through small groups. If you’re interested in checking out a small group with other parents of teens, contact Aaron Ritter at aaronritter@summitview.com.

A Community of Youth

But of course, this also includes a community of teens. The teen years are critical years, and we want our middle and high schoolers to find a community of peers that draws them closer to Jesus. By graduation, we hope to see each young man and woman equipped to tackle the world as devoted followers of Jesus Christ. Click below for a description of what we think that looks like.

Vision for Graduation

Youth Meeting Schedule

To help them become those devoted followers, we offer regular youth meetings on Wednesday nights from 7:00-8:30pm.

The high schoolers meet every Wednesday night.

Middle schoolers meet twice a month, the boys group and the middle school girls group (GLOW) on alternating weeks. The girls meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month, while the boys meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays.
