Our mission statement sums it up; we truly believe that the BEST life is one most closely following God. We desire to meet students where they are in order to shepherd them towards the source of all things good. Connection through reading of his written word (The Bible), prayer, and fellowship. We also try to have a lot of fun doing it.

Sunday Morning Cafe: 10:05 am
During Sunday Morning Cafe, the students are invited to drink hot chocolate or tea, grab a bagel or a doughnut, and have a chance to discuss Christian foundations with their peers. We have separate groups that meet for middle and high school.
Sunday Night Youth Group:
Both middle and high school meet in "The Cove," which is located on the bottom floor in the north west corner of the building (below the gym). We start out with a fun game such as capture the flag, dodge-ball, sardines, or anything else we can think of that is fun. Most importantly, we get to build relationships with the students who come and teach/show them what an adventure it is to live your life as a follower of Christ.
Middle School: 4:30-6:00 pm
High School: 6:30-8:00 pm
Don't miss our annual ski/snowboard trip to Wintergreen! We will be staying in the Lake Monocan lodge, which has become a tradition of Galilee Student Ministries. It is right on the lake with a volleyball court and huge fire pit. We will make a big bonfire at night after a long day of snow sports. We will ski all day Saturday (with the option of night skiing) and a half day Sunday. The cost is only $225 if you have your own equipment or $290 if you need to rent. The cost includes transportation, lodging, a lift ticket (and the option of rental equipment), breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, and dinner on Saturday. This is one of our favorite trips because we have so much fun while getting to build new friendships in the lodge and around the fire. This is a great event to invite friends to. We do have limited spots and it is first come first serve so sign up today!
We know money gets tight sometimes, but we never want a student to miss a trip because of that. Contact Marty@galileechurch.net to discuss some options.
The power of prayer is one of the most incredible things to experience.
To witness a person's heart change dramatically, to watch a student overcome a battle, and to walk through life with our students in prayer is extraordinary.
We'd like to invite you to pray for Galilee Youth, and Galilee Youth Ministries.
At the heart of Galilee’s youth ministry is a desire for all youth to trust in God’s call on their lives, enter into a relationship with Jesus Christ, and trust in the guidance of His Holy Spirit. For those teenagers who have formed this relationship and want to experience the sacrament of Confirmation, we offer a way to do so. Father Andy has recently changed the confirmation process. Here is his letter describing why he changed the process and how to be confirmed. If you would like to be confirmed or for your student to be confirmed in the future now is the time to sign up. Register online here.

We know summer is a time of fun, vacation, the beach, and more. However, I believe that the best week of your students summer would be this trip to the Boys Home. We put on a sports camp for the students of the Boys Home. We play soccer, football, lacrosse, tennis, basketball, and more. We go on an outing to a big gorgeous waterfall, slide down a massive slip-n-slide, and play games until sunset. However, the best part of the trip are the relationships built between the students of the Boys Home and Galilee. Don't miss this trip. Email Marty@galileechurch.net with questions.
We can't for our upcoming family outreach week! Parents, our goal for this trip is to create an awesome opportunity for you to serve alongside your middle school student and make priceless memories while serving our neighbors in South Carolina. We will be partnering with Next Step Ministries in their ongoing efforts to transform the community of Lexington both physically and spiritually. We'll serve the community by putting on a Vacation Bible School and helping with local home repairs for those in need. We’ll also have time to grow closer to God and to one another through nightly group meals, worship, and teaching. Email Lydia@galileechurch.net with questions.
What is it?
Digging in is something we created to help encourage our students to pick up the Bible at home. Each week, we will give out a passage from the Bible. On the back of the sheet, there are a few questions that allow kids to think more and go deeper into the meaning behind it.
We are so excited about this opportunity for our kids to start getting into God's Word, and we hope it would become a unique bonding time for you and your child.
