Here you'll find a Christian community of young people: Middle School (grades 5-8) and High School (grades 9-12). As we continue to transition day to day, week to week during this global pandemic, and social distancing, please remember that you are not alone in this “muddiness”.  There is still a way for us to worship and grow in our faith. Contact Kenton Reaves Hundley, Director of Discipleship for Children & Youth for more information. (619) 297-4366 ext. 118.

Become an Acolyte

GRADES 4 - 12

Acolytes assist in sanctuary worship services year-round. They lead the choir processional, light the altar candles, receive the offering, assist in baptisms, extinguish the altar candles, and assist at special services wherever needed. Acolytes learn leadership and cooperation skills as well as symbolism in our worship services. 

Candidates grades 4 through 12 are welcome. For further information, please email Kenton  or call 619-297-4366 ext. 118
