Youth Ministry

SMC has an incredible team of youth advisers and mentors who are working alongside parents to raise up a generation of young people who embrace their identity and calling as disciples of Jesus!

Our leaders strive to find creative ways to stay connected and engaged with the youth throughout all aspects of their lives. 

We encourage you to reach out to Jess McQuade, Director of Youth and Young Adults, if you have any questions about upcoming events and ways your youth can be involved.

Consent forms need to be on file for any youth attending events at church or off campus.

Baptism/Membership Classes

Baptism classes are offered for youth interested in baptism and exploring membership at SMC. The topics discussed include the basics of Christian faith, the Bible, the Anabaptist faith, and the impact of being a follower of Jesus Christ in daily life.

Youth Mentor Program

As each youth enters sixth grade, he/she is invited to choose an adult from the congregation to be a mentor for them throughout their junior and high school years. This adult builds a special connection to the youth, to encourage them spiritually and to walk beside them as a role model.  Contact Kristi Ruth for more information.
