Pam Ward, Director

Young people need a place to feel comfortable in discussing topics that affect their everyday lives.  We break up into groups suitable for deep conversation but there is always time for fun and adventures.    

“The Amazing Race” will be held Sunday April 15th as youth search Salisbury for tricky clues, wacky puzzles and difficult challenges.  As the weather warms up we will be enjoying some outside activities. 

Our Reach Mission Team is preparing for our journey to South Carolina in June.  Saturday April 21st will be a Community Yard Sale in the Oaks Parking lot.  Purchase your spots today. 

Aside from off campus activities we have weekly gatherings.  Come join the gang on Friday nights from 6:30-8.  The offer is for middle and high school students.    Contact Pam Ward Youth Director with any questions at
