Who are we?

The Youth Ministry program is for all middle and high school students (grades 6 to 12) in the Crofton area and is led by Hilary Ann Golden, the Director of Children, Youth, and Family Ministries, and volunteer Youth Leaders / Sunday School teachers including Dave Lanzer, Emily St. Louis, Kate Falls, Brian McCrady, Bryan Deehring, Lanie Stargel, and Gary Mills.

When do we meet?

The Gathering AM (aka Sunday school) meets during the second church service (10:45 am) each Sunday for a time of fellowship, worship, and Bible study. The middle school students meet in Classroom A and the high school students meet in the youth room.

The Gathering PM (aka youth group) meets on Sunday evenings from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm in the youth room or fellowship hall. This time is for fellowship, learning, worship, and fun. We generally follow this rotation:
