Haymarket Church Youth Group
A place for students in 6-12th grade
Haymarket Church’s youth ministry serves students in grades 6-12. Being a teenager is difficult. Being a faithful teenager in today’s world is even more so. At Haymarket Church we work to provide a safe space for our teens to be themselves while experiencing and learning about God’s great faithfulness. We have outstanding adult leaders and a fabulous group of students. If you are in 6-12th grade or know someone who is, be sure to check Youth Group out!
Our Youth Group meets Sunday nights at 5:45 PM from September to early June at our Ministry Center (Above Town Hall).
Generally Youth Group nights begin with games and a shared snack supper together. Then we have large group (6-12th grade together) followed by Middle School and High School small groups.
Each Sunday night we provide Dinner to our students and leaders. These dinners are prepared by Youth Group parents and members of Haymarket Church. Dinner is a great way for students and leaders to get to know one another in an informal setting. It is a critical part of our ministry. Please SIGN UP to serve dinner here.
Summer Mission Trip
Each summer we take a week to serve others. This trip helps strengthen our youth group community, teaches valuable skills to our students, and enables students and adult leaders to grow together as we serve together. The Mission Trip is open to students who are in the 6-12th grades during this 2023-2024 school year.
This summer we will travel to Western North Carolina the week of July 21-27, 2024 to do home repairs in Ashe, Alleghany, and Wilkes Counties. We will be staying at West Wilkes Middle School right outside Wilkesboro, NC and will be working through the Carolina Cross Connection (CCC) organization.
The trip will cost $600/student. A Deposit of $200 will be due by October 16 to secure a place on the mission team. A Second payment of $200 will be due by January 15. The final payment of $200 will be due by March 19.
If you opt to pay in full by Nov. 1, your cost will only be $580/student.
We offer a $100 sibling discount on the additional student cost for those sending multiple children from the same household. We have scholarships available and never want the cost to be a hinderance for any student who wants to attend. If you’d like to discuss a full or partial scholarship, please email Kim at email@example.com or call 540-840-7459.
