Every Friday, Lion Heart Youth gathers for an engaging, exciting, and uplifting experience. Our program is open to students in grade 7-12.

Each week, our evenings are filled with exciting activities, insightful discussions, and meaningful connections. Each night includes games, devotions, worship, fun, and fellowship.

We explore relevant topics and engage in open discussions to understand how we can apply these lessons to our lives as young Christians navigating today’s society, while also creating a community of good friends.

Sometimes the group will venture out for exciting, chaperoned activities off-site. These outings are not only a great way to have fun, but also to bond with peers in a safe and supervised environment.

We look forward to having you with us and exploring the incredible journey of faith, friendship, and adventure that Lion Heart Youth offers. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or would like more information.
