youth ministries

Welcome to the Blessed Hope Youth Group!  We offer youth ministry for students in Middle School through High School.

We believe that youth group is important because we know that being part of a community of believers will help students grow in their personal relationship with God.  We believe that having a fun and supportive place to investigate God will provide opportunities for the students to grow closer to Him.

Crown Company Jr. (Middle school) is on Wednesday nights from 6:30 - 8:00. 

Crown Company Sr. (High school) is on Sunday nights from 6:30 - 8:00. 

These nights include practical Bible teaching, small group discussion time, engaging music, games, and of course, food!

As part of the youth group, we also schedule a variety of "fun nights" and different activities.  These activities offer students a great opportunity to invite their friends, hang out, laugh, have fun, and enjoy each other's company.

Middle school fall retreat

Why: This is a great opportunity to get away from the noise of being in middle school and explore God’s truth together. We’ll get to meet other youth groups from across Iowa and grow closer with our own. Large group worship Saturday and Sunday will be times to explore the theme for the weekend.  

Theme: How hard is it to stand in the Truth? Come explore with us what it means to stand in God’s Truth!
