Youth in sixth grade through high school are invited into one of our youth fellowships. For sixth through eighth grade, youth are a part of the Junior Youth Fellowship (JYF). When meeting in person, the JYF and MYF meet weekly on alternating Wednesday nights during the school year for youth group as well as monthly service opportunities in Bridgewater and beyond.  We hold fun activities like laser tag and more, and a week long mission project in July.

During the summer of 2019 the JYF visited the Philly Project and the MYF traveled to West Virginia. Here, the youth, along with their advisors and director, worked on repairing a home! What a wonderful way to work in mission together and share Christ’s love with those around them!

Typically, both our JYF and MYF groups participate in a summer mission trip.  Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the youth will not be able to participate in a mission trip this year.

Please contact Andi Semler, for more information.
