We are called Anchor Youth because we are not only identified by our church and Lead Pastor’s vision and direction, but more importantly, in Jesus. We read in Matthew 12, in the reiteration of a prophecy, that His name will be the hope of all the world. Jesus is our hope and we are His youth. We, as Anchor Youth, walk in step with the vision of the entire church as a whole and aim to introduce young people to Jesus and the hope for a better life.
We welcome anyone in grades 7-12 (typically ages 12-18)

Anchor Youth- At A Glance
1. WEEKEND SERVICES
We are devoted to seeing students planted and thriving in the local church. Weekend services offer an opportunity for all generations to gather together to worship and grow through a practical, relevant message from God’s Word. Fridays 7pm and Sundays 7, 9 & 11am.
2. GROWTH TRACK
Our Growth Track is a simple, step-by-step way for students to realize their potential in Christ. Students will learn what it means to be a part of a church family and gain tools for walking with God daily. They will discover their gifts and passions and see how they can get involved in doing something great for God’s Kingdom. Growth Track meets every Sunday during the 11am service in the Anchor Church office.
3. DREAM TEAM
Students will never be more excited for God than when they are serving in their passion, gifting and purpose every day. The Dream Team is full of opportunities for students to identify and use their strengths to live out their faith by serving in the local church.
4. YOUTH WEDNESDAYS
Real life change happens in relationships. Anchor Youth is a weekly gathering of students from 7th-12th grade to build community. Have fun, worship, and hear a short teaching followed by time together in connect groups. Connect groups can build relationships more through outside hangouts & activities. Anchor Youth meets every Wednesday night at Anchor Church. Youth Wednesdays are held every week and start at 6:30 on the Youth Deck.
5. FIRST SUNDAYS
This is a monthly event designed specifically for students in grades 7-12 to invite their friends to come connect with God and others, while hearing a relevant message to fuel their next step with Christ. This night may include food, games, themes, music, prizes, etc. This is a great time to invite new friends to Anchor Youth, Connect Groups and Weekend Services. First Sundays obviously meets on the first Sunday night of every month at Anchor Church.
6. YOUTH LEADERS MEETINGS
These are regular times for our youth and student leaders to grow through training, accountability, leadership development, planning and unity. These meetings are led and facilitated by our youth pastor.
Camps offer students a distraction-free environment to experience God and grow deeper in relationship with others. Camps can be the most spiritually impactful youth events we do all year. They are a great opportunity to invite un-churched friends into a relationship with God and other students. Separate Jr. High and Sr. High camps will be scheduled each summer.
8. MISSION TRIPS
Going on at least one mission trip can dramatically reshape a student’s life and worldview. Mission trips open students’ eyes to the Great Commission and their part in taking God’s love to the world. Our youth take a mission trip to Machida, Japan every October during Fall Break. More trips in the future.
