Emmanuel Youth Group seeks to know God, know ourselves, know each other and know what to do about it. The mission of the group is to secure our identity as wholly redeemed and loved children of God in order to boldly live as salt and light in a world desperately in need of Christ.
So, what does it look like?
- We are Biblically based. Emmanuel Youth Group offers a true, full examination of God’s word viewed through a Reformed lens and examined by personal exploration.
Emmanuel Youth seek relevant, but not replicating experiences. What we learn applies to living our faith today. We address real challenges: no fluff. And what we learn is different than anything our culture has to offer.
Emmanuel Youth Group is youth led, mentor guided. There are no lectures, rather guided discussions with youth serving as peer-leaders actively guiding the group while being mentored by loving, honest, and committed adults.
Emmanuel Youth Group is outward oriented. We are not just hearers of the Word, but doers also. We actively seek out those different than us; by color, creed and condition. Our goal is to affect the world with the transformative power of Christ.
Sound interesting? Join us at 9:30am on Sunday mornings for Bible study.

EGG: Emmanuel Girls Group
Our junior and senior high girls meet together twice a month during the school year on Sunday evenings for fellowship, a book study, and typically to share some kind of food! This energetic and fun group discusses biblical and theological principles and how they apply to our everyday lives, pushing the girls to think a little more deeply about what their faith really means.
EGG is also a group for encouragement and community outside of Sundays, whether it means attending one of the girls' theater performances, going to see a movie together, grabbing dinner or any number of other types of outings. In the summer, we adapt to everyone's schedules and typically find a couple of times to hang out, but regular book study is put on hold until the school year starts up in the fall.
All girls in 6th through 12th grade are welcome to attend. EGG's leader is Mary Beth Hutchins, and her desire for EGG is for girls at this critical age to grow deeper in their faith and in relationship with other believers.
