Youth Grades 6-12

We’re back! Youth group is meeting again and taking precautions during the COVID-19 crisis. We are spreading out, outside when the weather is nice or inside the big gym when it’s not. We are having prepackaged individual snacks and mask are required.

Redirect is for youth in middle school and high school. We help students take steps towards Christ and the dreams they have for their life and have a ton of fun while we’re at it!

Redirect also provides a safe place to find a life filled with hope.

Mission Statement: “To glorify God by allowing student’s to deepen their relationship with Christ through a focus on God’s word, encouraging fellowship with other Christians, and empowering life changing relationships with non-believers.”
