Each Sunday during the school year and the summer, youth, grades 6-12, are invited to come to the youth area for Sunday School. Once a month there will be a large breakfast served right before our study begins. On the other Sundays, there will be a small snack provided. Our study usually consists of a various Bible Study. This past year, both middle school and high school students worked through the major stories of the old and the new testaments in a study through Spark House Publisher. We try to present stories in new and exciting ways. We split the students up by grades to give the youth smaller groups to have more in-depth conversations. Our Sunday School classes are taught by adult volunteers, both parents of youth and non-parents.

From 6:00-7:30 p.m. on select Sundays, there will be a fun activity for all youth. The Sonlight Choir meets in the afternoon each Sunday ending with the snack supper. All youth, regardless of participation in choir, are welcome to come to dinner and Sondown activities. Activities will be both on church grounds and off (Note: Parents will be notified if there will be travel off of church grounds). Activities in the past have ranged from slip-n-slide kick ball, smores by the campfire, to going to get ice cream at Dairy Queen. The goal of Sondown is to provide a space for students to prepare for the busy week ahead and to enjoy the company of each other.
Youth are encouraged to participate in Sonlight Youth Choir as part of their spiritual journey. Choir practice is weekly on Sunday events.
During the school year, youth meet on Wednesday nights from 5:15-6:15 p.m. for hangout and supper. From 6:15-7:15 p.m., worship, small groups, games, service and more takes place. We gather to share what God is doing in our lives, to learn from and support one another and to pray for each other. Wednesdays are a chance to have a solid support group of friends who become family. It is a place where everyone knows your name and is excited to see you!
