Truth Teens is a program designed to provide our young people opportunities for spiritual growth and service. All activities include a Bible message geared for young people. Pastor Matt Harper in in charge of the teen ministry. Several married couples also work with the teens on Wednesday evenings and are involved in encouraging our young people to grow in their spiritual relationship with the Lord. Each month a newletter, Truth Teen Focus, includes a personal testimony from one of our teens and a list of activities scheduled for the month.
