Youth Ministries

Every student asks three major questions: “Who am I?” “Do I matter?” and “Does anybody care?”

Our youth ministry focuses on helping students answer these three questions by welcoming them into fun, creative environments to deepen their relationship with God and others.

Branch Youth Group in COVID-19

In-Person Youth Group

As long as regulations allow, Branch has moved to in-person youth group. In compliance with local regulations and under advisement from Knox’s Re-Entry Task Force, we are meeting in separate small groups. Middle schoolers meet on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month from 2:30 pm – 3:30pm outside on the Knox lawn. High schoolers meet on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month from 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm outside on the Knox lawn. Students are required to wear masks at all times and remain 6ft apart. Students are also encouraged to bring their own picnic blankets or camping chairs to sit on. Students must RSVP ahead of time at: https://reopen.church/r/RsLjdqq7.
