Helping people experience life in Jesus. You're welcome here. 


We're a bunch of middle and high school students learning to enjoy and follow Jesus well. You're invited to join us!


Be sure to subscribe to the Youth Newsletter below to stay up to date with all that's happening in and through Youth at 26 West Church.


Youth gatherings

As middle and high school students we get to enjoy, and help others enjoy, the goodness of God is our everyday moments.

We gather together each Wednesday night from 7-8:30pm to share a meal, study the Scriptures, worship through music, talk about what God is doing in and through our lives, and pray over each other.


Current youth series: Jesus is what God is like – a series through the letter of John.

Chances are you’ve either read or heard parts from Matthew, Mark, Luke or John. They’re what we call the four Gospels, or the good news about who Jesus is and how His life, death, and resurrection changed everything.

Over the next few months we’ll be reading through, and talking about, the letter of John. While each Gospel is centered around Jesus, each has it’s own specific theme. John helps us with the question, “What is God like?”

Is God angry with me? Offended? Far away? Quite the opposite says John… the good news is that Jesus is what God is like!

Gather with us each Wednesday from 7-8:30pm as we explore the Bible letter called John, continuing to learn to enjoy and follow Jesus well. You’re invited!


Reading through the Bible in a year

As a community of young people (grades 6–12), we'll be using The One Year Bible to read through the Scriptures in 2019. Each One Year Bible includes a daily reading from both the Old and New Testament, making it a great tool to practice the rhythm of reading the Scriptures. Pick one up for just $10 during our weekly youth gathering or on Amazon.


The youth notebook

A great way to learn the practice of giving time each day to recognizing what, and how, God is speaking to you. Pick one up for just $5 during our weekly youth gathering (or free when purchasing a One Year Bible).


Going deeper cohort (coming soon)

Whether you've recognized the Holy Spirit’s call to turn to Jesus for a full life, or are simply interested in learning more about Jesus, God, faith, and the Bible and how it’s the best way to live, this three month course is designed to help you grow in understanding the Christian faith.


The youth playlist

Music is one of the many ways we can choose to worship God. When we worship God through song, it often reminds us of who God is and who we are. This return to a proper perspective of God helps move us into a place of real worship, a place where we can't help but respond to the goodness of God. May you continue learning to see all moments as God moments, even in the music you listen to. Here are a few songs / albums you may enjoy:


Youth Trips


Let's go! Gather with us as we explore some of the Pacific Northwest's most amazing spots. Packing lists, along with drop off/pick up times will be emailed to you a few days before each trip.
