Youth Ministry

For the latest info and news on Freshwater’s Youth Ministry, read this week’s Up2Date.


Welcome to our page and thanks for stopping by. One question we often get asked is, “So what are you guys about?” Our short answer: We are about joining teenagers and their families on their spiritual journey. A journey towards glorifying God by knowing Him and making Him known. To do that, we offer several gatherings and events throughout the year all designed to focus on growth in three key relationships.

  • Living UP focuses on a relationship with God.
  • Living IN focuses on a relationship with other Christ followers.
  • Living OUT focuses on a relationship with the world around us.

Also, we offer a weekly communication called our Up2Date and a texting service used primarily to send out reminders and changes to our schedule. For more information on how to get connected to either of these resources, please contact Kendra Sovine at or Len Maher at

So let’s say your teenager isn’t currently interest in God, or maybe he/she has a hunger for Him and a desire to grow in that relationship, either way feel free to check us out at one of our gatherings or events. If you have any questions or feel we may be able to help out in someway, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thanks again for visiting our page!
