    It is important for our youth to be mentored by a group of leaders who are passionate about building relationships and modelling Christ as they engage.

Activities, games, worship, small group Bible studies and service outings are enjoyed Wednesday nights at the church from 7 - 9 pm. Extra events and social nights are planned throughout the year. Short-term mission opportunities are also offered. Youth can join anytime!


    Grow Groups

    Grow Groups | All Ages
    Everyone who attends our church is encouraged to be part of a Grow Group. Grow Groups meet the Fourth Sunday of the month. This casual setting provides great opportunity to meet others from our church community. We enjoy refreshments and/or lunch, and spend time in sermon-based discussion and prayer. Grow Groups are meant to be a safe place where we can be ourselves, learn together, share together, and even serve together. (Sept, Oct, Nov, Jan, Feb, Mar)

    Alpha

    is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Each session looks at a different question and is designed to create conversation. No two alpha's look the same - they run in coffee shops, churches, prisons, bars, universities, schools and homes. There is no pressure - no follow up - and no charge. It is an open and informal honest space to explore and discuss life's big questions together. Smithville CRC is offering this program beginning January 20, 2019, and you are welcome to join!
