LW Youth

Students Grades 6-12

“Living Word Youth live as a community of Jesus followers who worship, learn, serve, and celebrate together.”


We all have questions and we are all still figuring out what we truly believe. This is a place where students dive deeper to learn, have fun, and take steps of faith. Youth Center doors open at 8:45 am. Teaching and small groups begin at 9:30 am. No registration required. We’ll save you a seat. 

Students will find a place to belong here. Students celebrate and serve alongside new and old friends. Games, outings around town, service projects, and themed events provide an opportunity for students to invite friends and mobilize their faith.  Register for events below. Don’t miss out. Events typically follow the school year calendar running September- May. 

Young Adults meet Wednesday nights on Living Word’s campus at 7:00 pm June to August. There is a peer-led study, activity, and prayer. No registration required. This is an environment to reconnect with friends and grow your faith over the summer.

Summers are busy and juggling schedules around vacations, camps, and work can be complicated. Middle School guys, Middle School girls, and High School Co-Ed groups are led by two adult small group leaders. Each group determines their own schedule and activities. 

For information about becoming involved in Living Word Youth, please contact our Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministries Wesly Pinkston.
