At Merrick Drive, we get the opportunity to see what it looks like when teens encounter God in their lives.  We pray for our youth, surround them with a community of adults who invest in them, and work to lead them into a mature faith, and a loving relationship with the God we serve.  
During the year we participate in community outreach programs such as:

– The Soup Kitchen

– Hope for Ardmore

– Singing for local nursing homes

– Vacation Bible School

Another important aspect of the Merrick Drive Youth Group is our personal

youth group+family time.These are activities that bring us closer to one another and bring us to a better understanding of how each of our stories fit inside the BIG story that God is telling. During the year our calendar will be filled with things like:

– Monthly in-house devotionals (w/meal!)

– Weekly Bible studies

– Game/Movie nights

– Breakfast for dinner night
