YOA  (High School Youth of Ascension)


Sunday Night YOA Meetings (doors open at 5:45 pm) 6:00 - 8:00 pm

Every Sunday night, we meet to socialize, dive deeper into our faith and build healthy relationships. We mix ice-breakers and games with learning how our faith is more than relevant in today's modern times.  We will begin the new year on September 10, 2023, at 6pm. Please register below!

Bring a friend; all are welcome!
