The Place Youth Center is a safe place for students to come experience the peace, love and hope of Jesus Christ amidst a world of chaos, violence and rejection. Our programs change with the season but they consistently welcome all ages up to 18 years old.
During the school year we host Friday night hangouts and our Summer Youth Center features a variety of clubs and activities throughout the week. Due to COVID-19 we are trying to do what is best for our community to mitigate spread and promote the health and well being of all. As a result, our usual plans and programs have adapted to include Drive Thru Events.
We look forward to returning to some adapted In-Person Youth Center activities
