Youth Ministries

Our youth experience God through Bible learning and engaging worship

The Youth Ministry of Life Church at South Mountain exists to glorify God through evangelizing our youth, encouraging parents, and edifying the next generation so that the gospel may be spread among our children, families may be supported, and the church may be strengthened.

WE BELIEVE THAT...

Our youth are a vital part of the church today. They are not only the next generation, they are part of our faith community now. We need them. They inspire us.

At Life Church we are passionate about creating environments where youth and ministry leaders can engage with one another and where we give space for the Holy Spirit to move and form these young hearts and minds.

It is our goal for creative ministry leaders teach the bible and lead worship, spurring our youth to love Jesus wholeheartedly and carry His light into their world.

Awaken Youth Ministries

Sunday Mornings at 9:45 

Before our Sunday morning worship service, our teens meet together for Sunday School. 

With our program based on Ephesians 5:14, our mission is to reach out to 9th-11th grade students providing a place of fellowship and growth, where we can connect with God and with each other. Our prayer is for teens to see Jesus as the answer, getting the opportunity to know Him better through bible study, small groups, and church fellowship.​​
