As the new school year begins, and we feel fall in the air, youth ministry is revving up at Emmanuel. Things look a little different from last year, so please keep reading to learn about the changes. Pray that in all these discipleship opportunities, we point to Jesus Christ and how he is at work in us and the world!
Contact Scott Sharpnack with questions about Emmanuel’s Youth Ministry.
All are Welcome!
