Youth Usher Board

The Youth Ushers serve God and our congregation by greeting members and guests as they enter the Sanctuary, serving as doorkeepers and collecting gifts for mission, tithes and offerings.

Young People’s Division (YPD)

Under the leadership of the Women’s Missionary Society, the YPD provides meaningful youth trained programs and opportunities for leadership experience in all areas of church life.
