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.

Small Groups

Galilee Student Ministry is moving to a small group format. We have found that our small groups are really successful in being a better place for students to connect to each other and to God. We are forming small groups for each age group, so please click the link to sign up for a group. We will continue to do fun events throughout the year that bring the group as a whole together. If you have any questions on how your student can get involved, please contact Marty today.

Uganda Missions Trip: Postponed Until Summer 2022

Our high school and college students will be returning to Uganda. The trip to Uganda in 2018 was life changing for many of the students and leaders who came with us. We will be going with Solar Light for Africa who Galilee has been a long time partner. Solar Light has many connections in Uganda and offer an incredible and safe trip. We will spend one week at an orphanage in northern Uganda installing solar panels, putting on a fun program for the orphans, and helping in the surrounding community. Then we will head to a world class safari lodge situated right on the Nile river with wildlife all around to take a safari and get a day of rest in. The final week, we will install solar panels close to Kampala.

The cost of the trip is $3,000* per student. Please click here for a financial breakdown of the payment plan and our fundraising plan. Here is a link to the CDC page on Uganda with information about immunizations. Safety is our first priority and we would not be taking this trip if I believed it would be endangering our students health or safety. Our guide, Charlene, ensures that we only travel to places that are completely safe. Please contact ten.hcruhceelilag@ytraM for more information.

We are still planning on going to Uganda this summer, but we are not taking any money until we are able to confirm we are able to go on the trip. Please email ten.hcruhceelilag@ytraM to ask for more information and find out next steps.

Confirmation 2021

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.

Email ten.hcruhceelilaG@ytraM for more information.
