 Activity Nights are one way for our students (grades 6-8) and (grades 9-12) to get involved and share fellowship with other students their age! Activity Nights happen once a month for Middle School and a couple times a semester for High School and will usually be on a weekday and will run for two hours. Come join us for some fun with a faith twist to each evening! Here are some of the previous activity nights we have had (we will repeat some events again) ​​
