Our youth programs are open to any youth in the community who wishes to attend regardless of church affiliation. Please feel free to contact the church for more information or attend any meeting.
Junior Youth Group
In 2009, the need for a "junior" youth group was recognized by a church and former Youth Group member.After careful planning and recruitment of staff our Junior Youth Group was born. Under the direction of Morgan Boninu, the Jr. Youth Group meets every Sunday night (Sept-May) from 4:30-5:45 PM in our church Social Hall with children 2nd thru 6th grade. Through various activities the children start to build the foundation of their faith and bond in friendship with other children. Every year the children are disappointed to see the program end but look forward to seeing each other in September.
The Youth Group has been in existence at Holmes Church for many years. It has been so successful, that the Jr. Youth Group and a Young Adult Bible Study have been spin offs for different age groups. Since 1996, the Holmes Youth Group has been under the direction of Mark & Becky Kalbach. The members meet every Sunday night (Sept-May) from 6-7:30PM with youth 7th thru 12th grade. During this time, the group focuses on societal issues/pressures and solutions to those issues based on Biblical principles. Through games and activities, in a respectful, supportive, non threatening atmosphere our youth can be themselves and express their opinions. Year after year total strangers meet and become best friends.Over the years, for many of these youth,strong bonds of friendship form that draw them together even outside church activities. These bonds are so strong with graduating members that our last program was recently started.
