During the year we participate in community outreach programs such as:

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!)

– Game/Movie nights

– Breakfast for dinner night
