Hello there! Thanks for checking out five17.com, the official website of WayPoint Youth!
 
Are you looking for Five17 Youth??? You are in the right place! Starting this fall, Five17 Youth will be CHANGING ITS NAME! Instead of Five17, our student ministry will henceforth be known as WAYPOINT YOUTH. Same ministry. Same people. Same church. New name. Our students are still called “fivers” and 2 Corinthians 5:17 is still our official verse. Scroll down for all the information you came here for – – –

Join WayPoint Youth
 
WayPoint Youth represent a group of young people who have found a common identity with each other. They support each other, rely on each other, and serve those around them, without judgment or condemnation. When they come together, any number of spontaneous and fun things can happen. We just provide the space for them to meet once a week. 
 
When a student comes to WayPoint Youth, whether they are a long time attender or there for the first time, they will find a relaxed, open cafe atmosphere where they can hang out with other young people, without pressure. They can sit down in the cafe and read a book with a cup of coffee or hot cocoa, or just grab a soda. They can throw a football around, jam out to some music, and use the wi-fi. It’s all free. The leaders there will provide organized games and activities that are designed to get students to interact with one another, and have a great time. But if hanging back and just observing is more your style, that’s fine too. .
 
Next, they will be brought into a gathering where they will share in community with one another, sing songs of praise to God, and maybe actually learn something about the creator who loves them so much. 
 
Then they will spend time in a small group atmosphere, where they can ask questions, aid in conversation, and grow closer to God, and to each other.
 
Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price for all. And that includes teens. No matter your background, you are welcome here. If any student ever needs help, or just a listening ear, our leaders are compassionate, caring, and available to listen.
