Do you have questions about Christian faith and practice that you can’t seem to answer? Do you have friends and neighbors who have questions?


Well, we may not have the answers, but together over something to drink and maybe a snack, we can talk through the questions in a non-confrontational, open way. Even if we on’t find the answer, we will learn more about the question, each other and ourselves.

Spiritual Formation may sound like something exotic or for the super spiritually mature. The truth is, our spirits are being formed every day. We have a choice to make: will we allow the world to form us or will be apply ourselves to the work of the cooperation with Jesus to conform our hearts to his?


In this thirteen week study, we will journey together with Dallas Willard as he shows us a practical and biblical way of cooperating with Jesus


Note: participants will be required to have their own copy of Renovation of the Heart by Dallas Willard, read a chapter each week (average 20 pages) and prepare answers to study questions that follow each chapter.

Youth Life together is a place where we value questions about God, life, family, friendship, and more.  We believe that unanswered questions are not threats; they are challenges and catalysts for growth.


Our community of students and leaders aim to create an open environment where students can explore their faith (or even the idea of faith) and let it grow naturally.


Each month has a theme and once a month we have a fun student-chosen event. We also have Sunday morning class twice a month.


All youth (7th-12th grade) are welcome!
