At Arcola Church, youth includes Middle School (6th through 8th grade) and High School (9th through 12th grade).

Watch also for periodic service and fellowship opportunities.

Summer in the Arts Camps

Worship with Congregation

On the 1st Sunday of each month, the youth will worship with the congregation in the Great Room. This fosters inter-generational relationships and exposes our youth to a wider worship experience. 

Small Groups

During the school year, youth small groups will be held in the NEW Youth Room beginning at 11am on Sunday mornings. Each group is led by dynamic, fun mentors. Small groups are organized based on grade level. 


Throughout the year, youth give of their time participating in local service projects and traveling both inside and outside of the United States for mission trips. Annual mission trips include the Sneedville Mission Trip to Hancock County, Tennessee in July, and the Bricks of Hope College Mexico Mission Trip to Rio Bravo, Mexico in December.

Special Events

Fun activities, service and team-building opportunities are held throughout the year.
