"The Bible says, "We love, because God loves us first." That's the first thing we teach our children: that God loves them more than they will ever know," said Rev. Paul Janssen, pastor. "But the Bible also teaches us to love God and to love our neighbors as ourselves. So each week we open up a Bible story that strengthens our love for God and each other.

"Then, we go beyond just talking, and act out our faith by serving others, within the church and within the community," he added.

The youth group invites all children in 6th grade through high school to participate in a variety of community service activities fellowship, including the preparation of meals for the Samaritan Homeless Interim Program (SHIP), organizing toiletry collections and assembling hygiene kits to be distributed by the Food Bank Network of Somerset County, providing baskets with baked treats for the elderly, participating in the CROP Hunger Walks and more.

Activities include: hosting fundraisers during the annual Peter Mayer Stars and Promises Concert that benefit a local child stricken with life threatening illness, arts and crafts, games, educational field trips and sharing pizza.

Gathering time is often on Sundays but does vary based on the event. No need to be a member, just a willingness to enjoy Christian fellowship.
