Youth Ministry



Here at Soapstone we have a place for every youth in 6th – 12th grade to belong and grow in their faith! The youth of Soapstone are rooted in Christ, growing in their faith, and bearing fruit for God in the world each year.

  • Sunday Night Live: every Sunday night from 5-6:30pm we offer a time of fellowship and learning (except in the summer months). “SNL” includes games, learning, service opportunities, and snack!
  • Retreats: Youth can take time out to be with God on our Pilgrimage trip in the fall, and our Beach retreat in the summer. Check our calendar for specific dates!
  • Lock-ins: Youth participate in two lock ins per year, there is learning, food, and fun!
  • Service projects: We have several opportunities to fund raise and serve the community each year.
  • Mission Trips: Every summer our youth go to Hinton Rural Life Center to engage in relationship based construction ministry. In addition, we alternate between domestic and international trips for our second summer mission trip
