Youth Summer Mission Trips

Every summer the youth take mission trips to various places.

RIOT Youth Ministry Summer Schedule:


Starting September 11th, Sunday mornings are a little different than last year. During the 9:00 service, we will be having all of our Sunday School Programs:
· 6th& 7th Grade Sunday School a Room 26 in the Church
· 8th Grade Confirmation School a Spirit Hall in the Church (previous Spirit Café)
· 9th – 12th Grade Sunday School a Dining Room of Rising House

There will be no Sunday School classes during the 10:30 service for 6th – 12th graders. The reason being is that we feel that actively worshiping with your family and the congregation is a crucial part of strengthening our relationship with Christ. Not having classes during second service allows us the opportunity to do so. On the 1st Sunday of the month we will still have Sunday School and Confirmation Class, but will also sit together as a Youth Group during Second Service.


Sunday Evenings, starting September 14th will also be a little different. We are having a Junior High Youth Group Program at Crossroads from 5-6pm and Senior High Life Groups from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. These new Life Groups will provide Senior High students a safe space to engage others in conversation, grow in their faith, and prepare to be disciples of Jesus Christ in our world. To sign up for the Senior High Life Groups, contact Joseph Palmer.
· 6th, 7th, & 8th Grade Youth Group a Crossroads from 5pm – 6pm
· 9th – 12th Grade Life Groups a 6:30pm – 8pm


On Wednesday’s all youth will continue to meet for our Midweek Giveback. WE will be serving our congregation by working at the Fellowship Dinners at Crossroads. We will be meeting from
5:30 – 7pm and dinner will be provided.


New Texting Program
