Galilee Student Ministries

Together, we learn to fully depend on God so that he

can equip, connect, and powerfully work through us.


WHO We are

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.

  • weekly Programs

    Sunday Morning Cafe:  10:30 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

  • PRay for our YOuth

    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.

  • High School Fall Retreat--September 21-23

    We have a really special fall retreat planned for all of our high school students September 21st through 23rd.  We will be going to Charlottesville, Virginia and staying in two really nice cabins in the woods.  The cabins have hot tubs, great scenery, and a rec room.  We plan to hike Crabtree Falls, which is a short beautiful hike.  We also plan to kayak down the James, cookout over a bonfire, and have a blast hanging out.  Last year we completely sold out the trip so don’t miss out! Sign up here!

It's going to be an amazing time of hanging out, having fun, and enjoying the beach. You won't want to miss it. We're expecting to sell out, so sign up here today!

  • Confirmation 2019

    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.

  • Home Study

    What is it?

    Home study 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. 


    If your student completes 5 Home Studies, they earn lunch with the leaders. If 10 kids turn it in on the same week, we will celebrate with ice cream the following week. We thought it would be nice to have a little incentive for them to start building that habit.


    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. Click here for this week's home study!
