Youth at Calvary is a great place for students to connect with peers and mentors while learning more about God and being challenged to grow deeper in their faith. At youth group, we have a great time eating meals together, playing together, worshiping together, praying together, and building long-lasting friendships. Our leaders are carefully screened, trained, and dedicated to investing in student’s lives.
Our hope is for students is to get to know God better in a safe, healthy, encouraging, and challenging environment. Our Milestone Retreats are an important way for youth to solidify their faith before heading off to the post high-school plans.
During the school year, our Middle School Group meets on Sunday mornings at 11 am and our High School Group meets on Sundays at 6 pm.

The 9th Grade Milestone Retreat is an event for high school freshmen and their parents to deepen their relationship with Christ. We will connect with scripture, work on a service project, and discuss next steps for our faith journey.
- The purpose of this retreat will be to help seniors plan for their next steps, especially what it means to follow God when they're in a less structured environment.
- We will introduce and practice spiritual disciplines and develop an initial action plan for deepening our faith after high school.
- We'll have worship, devotionals, silence and solitude time, and fellowship with each other.
One of the key elements of Youth Group that makes us is that we always share a meal together. This has been made possible due to generous people like you who have provided food for our students every year.

Meals do not need to be gourmet by any means and we try to keep it around $75/meal. It is ok if you go over $10/15, but we could not maintain that through both semesters. Some volunteers provide a dessert like ice cream or cookies, but that is not expected. We provide water and lemonade.
ALL MEALS ARE REIMBURSED IF YOU KEEP RECEIPTS AND TURN THEM IN TO AMY CADE (email@example.com).
