The River Christian Youth Group consists of middle school and high school students with ages ranging from 11 to 18 (grades 6th through 12th). Church begins on Sunday at 10:00 am. The youth meet at around 10:30 am, after participating in worship, in the main sanctuary. We meet in the youth room or as we affectionally like to call it, "The Garage". Sunday youth group normally begins with open check-ins and snacks. Then there is a scheduled lesson and/or message. Afterwards, there is a small group discussion applying the message and biblical principles, to everyday teenage life. Curriculum is chosen by the youth director and other church leaders based on youth and parent feedback. Aside from Sunday group, our youth also participate in local events, out of town adventures, movie nights, BBQ's, breakfasts and more. We have a youth bulletin board, in our church, which provides a list of up and coming events and quarterly schedules to inform our youth and church members about future intended messages for our youth. Each year we chose a theme.                                                                                                                                                 "Don't let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith and your purity". (NLT)
