Youth Ministry
Leader: Eli Wedde


About Us:


Our goal is to present the gospel of Jesus Christ and be people of prayer at all times. Our 2017 theme will be a fresh look on the hard questions that students currently have in regards to their faith and culture. We are confident in the biblical answers to these tough questions and seek to engage the students minds and hearts by talking about interesting things while fostering a real sense of community. We have a team of leaders that really love the students and Christ.

Our Weekly Schedule

Wednesday Jr. High: 5:30-8:00 pm at the church. Games and dinner is from 5:30-7. 7-7:30 is our prayer, worship, and lesson time. 7:30-8:00 is small group time. Dinner costs $2.50 a person.

Sunday Night  Senior High: 5:00-8:00pm.  Dinner (Pizza!) is $3 dollars a person. Fellowship time is from 5:00- 6:30, and our lesson and worship time is from 6:30-8:00.



We use the same system many teachers use at Paola to communicate, Remind. It works much better than group emails or mass texting, and is less annoying then group texting messages. If you have the app, you can join a "class" simply by typing in the code below. If you don't have or want the app, just text me your phone number and i will add you to the list myself, and you will recieve the updates as a text message.

Jr. High Code = @ewedde
Sr. High Parents = @ewedde2
Sr. High Students = @ewedde3


Parents = you can get on any list if you would like, the specific senior high parent code is only to lower the total number of messages that you get as not to potentially annoy you.
