Current Series

We are currently studying prayer through the month of October! We are exploring concepts like meditation, the Lord's Prayer, experiential prayer, and more!

Halloween Night!

On October 31st, we're hosting our third annual nerf war!  Meet at the church from 6-8 and bring your nerf blasters  but leave your darts at home, we'll supply those! Wear your costumes, eat some (like a whole bunch) of candy, shoot some leaders and learn about letting go in prayer!

What We Do Here

Shield Nights

Grades 6-12 meet  Sundays from 6:00-8:00 PM for our weekly youth group!  Shield Nights usually consist of dinner, games, teaching, and small groups!

Bible Study

Grades 6-12 meet Sunday mornings during the 11:00am service in the room 205 (with the bean bags).  Papa Herr's teaching pulls directly from the Books of the Bible!


The Leadership Team is a handful of our high schoolers who essentially run the Shield Ministry.  They teach, they lead small groups, they lead games, and they help plan events!


The launch of the youth worship team has been pushed back due to issues with Covid-19 but if you would like to join, feel free to let Connor know and we'll get you plugged in!
