“To strengthen our youth’s walk with Christ
and to shine His Light on the youth of our community. ”

Connect Youth (CY) seeks to provide an environment that is both relevant, meaningful and helpful to the covenant youth of GNC - to strengthen their walk with Christ, and welcoming to the unbelieving youth of our community. 

We welcome all Middle and High School youth to join us twice a month on Sunday evenings to get connected to the Good News about Jesus. Come and experience great teaching, goofy skits, lively praise and worship, fun games, and tasty food from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM.

In addition, we venture outside to serve our community, attend retreats and go on CY planned events.
