B. U. R. S. T. (Youth Group)

B.U.R.S.T. is the name of our youth group for grades 7 – 12. They meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30p.m. – 8:00p.m. at the church’s Youth Center. B.U.R.S.T. consists of: Fellowship (often a small meal or snacks is provided), Bible Study, Song-time, and Prayer time. Bible Study topics are geared for young people and issues that are relevant to youth. The leaders are Pastor Duane & Cristina Smith, and they bring with them twenty-one years' experience as youth leaders. B.U.R.S.T. meets on Wednesdays in conjunction with the school calendar year. The name B.U.R.S.T. is an acronym for:
