Home / Church Life / Youth


Our youth are a part of our main service each Sunday morning.  In the evenings, our youth often head out to the fireside room after the worship for a time of discipleship.


We host youth events every Friday night at 7:00 pm, including times of worship and off-site activities.  Be sure to check out the calendar to see what’s happening.

For Parents

To keep parents informed Pastor Owen provides a weekly email outlining upcoming youth activities.  Contact Pastor Owen to be placed on the mailing list and stay in the loop.

Shelter Youth

Friday’s 7:00 pm

The youth ministry of Elim, Shelter Youth, is committed to the discipleship of students from grades seven through twelve. We value youth and are committed to incorporating them in to the full life of the church.

Whether it is live music, a message that will challenge you, fun-filled activities, or just hanging out, you can make SHELTER your ‘home.’

Youth Discipleship

Sunday’s 6:30 pm

Discipleship is an important part of Elim. We believe nurturing a strong biblical foundation starts at an early age. Our youth discipleship program offers a safe and comfortable atmosphere to explore key topics of faith and spirituality.

Avalon Youth Retreat


Each Spring, the youth of our church join with other groups from the east coast for a collective weekend retreat.  This full-filled time includes special speakers and worship leaders.  Keep an eye out for details when the snow starts to melt.
