At LFC Teens we aim to welcome students, grades 6-12, into the family of God, introduce them to Jesus, nurture growth as disciples, encourage them to glorify God with their whole lives, and serve others with their gifts. Students of all backgrounds and faith journeys are welcome in our youth group, where we believe all teens have been created in the image of God.

Vision: Gather, Grow, Go

  • We will GATHER as a family in large and small groups to fellowship and worship with each other (Acts 2:1)
  • We will GROW through teaching in scripture, sharing our own stories, and small group gatherings (Gospels; Proverbs 27:17)
  • We will GO out into the world to be lights for the kingdom of Christ (Acts 27:17b-18; Matthew 28:18-20)

Wednesdays

Wednesday nights are a high-energy and friendly atmosphere where we engage in strong biblical teaching, real-world conversations, fun group games, and authentic relationships.

Learn More

Our Wednesdays are broken into semesters that follow our local school schedules. We kick off at 6pm with games and snacks, followed by our teaching and small group discussions. Your student will be welcomed into the group where we are confident they will build strong relationships with both peers and caring adult leaders.

Check out the Wednesday Night page  for our current semester’s schedule.

Sundays

On Sunday mornings we gather as a whole church for worship.

Learn More

Our students of all ages are included in the larger church family, where we believe there is great value in the generations lifting their voices as one. We have two identical services in English at 9 and 10:30AM, followed by our service in Spanish at 12PM. All ages are invited to any service! Expect to see teens drinking coffee, chatting with their friends, sitting with families and peers, and engaging in all aspects of the worship services.

Summers

Our regular rhythms change in the summer months, where we meet for fellowship and fun at different locations all summer long.

SNOT

The last Sunday of each month the teens get together outside of the church for Sunday Night Overtime. This usually includes dinner and games. This provides a non-intimidating atmosphere for new students to feel welcome. It’s a great event for inviting friends! Check out our events page for info on the next SNOT.

Safety

It’s our goal to create a safe and friendly environment for your students, our volunteers, and the whole family.

Learn More

All of our volunteers are required to complete background checks and go through a safety training process. We have many policies and procedures in place to ensure we create safe environments for both on-site and off-campus events. The safety of your student is a top priority for us.

Check out the events page for what’s coming up next in the life of the church!

We want to come to you

We know your students have a lot going on, and we want to be there to support them as they do what they love. If your kid plays sports, dances, does theater, sings, plays an instrument, or whatever else, we’d love opportunities to come and celebrate them. Click the button to fill out an event form and let us know what they’ve got coming up. We can’t make it to everything, but one of our pastoral team will do their best to get out and support your teens while they do what they love.
