At Ingomar Church we exist to lead our students in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe that life is better, when Christ is at the center. Our goal is to walk with our students on their faith journeys and help them strengthen their faith.

Evening Youth Group Experiences for Grades 6-12

Youth Ministry can be a life preserver for students entering Junior and Senior High. Weekly group meetings offer community, support, and mentorship to our students in grades 6-12. We believe that Youth Ministry can change a student’s life, and we encourage students to join us each week as we learn how to put our faith into action. God designed us to yearn for healthy communities, and that is what we provide for students: a healthy, safe, and nurturing environment where students can explore their faith without judgment.

Notice: Our doors lock to keep our students safe!
At 5:15 for ROOT, and 6:45 for FISH our doors will automatically lock. This helps us to keep our students and leaders safe throughout the night. We encourage parents to drop students off on time, or to let Megan know in advance if they will be late so we can ensure the doors are open.

ROOT Youth Group: Grades 6-8
Sundays 5:00-6:30pm; Youth Room, Community Life Center (room 226)
10 minute hang out time, 35 minute game, 15 minute lesson, 20 minute small group time. Snacks are plentiful!

Middle School Parents should come INSIDE for Pick Up!
I know your students are awesomely responsible, but I ask that for their safety that you come inside to pick them up. Please express to your child that they are to wait inside for pick up until you arrive. There is lots of traffic in the lot with teenagers coming in, mourners in the cemetery, and people who use our lot to turn around. We want to keep everyone safe and you coming inside for pick up helps us to do that.

FISH Youth Group: Grades 9-12
Sundays 6:30pm-8:30pm; Youth Room, Community Life Center (room 226)
10 minute hang out time, 35 minute game, 15 minute announcements 20 minute lesson, 30 minute small group time. Snacks are plentiful!
