A New Vision for HermNaz Youth

Starting April 14th, 2024 we are going to be switching up our weekly youth group nights from Wednesday to Sunday evenings from 6:30pm-8:00pm.
This is in hopes to reach a new demographic of students who are not able to attend on Wednesday nights.

Also, on that Sunday evening (April 14), we are having a Rebranding Event where we will be releasing our new youth logo, mission statement, and youth apparel. You're going to want to mark your calendars as this evening will be a great opportunity for students and parents to hear the heart of our youth ministry team and an overview of our 2024-2025 yearly calendar.

Bring Your Questions Here

April 17 - June 12

On Wednesday evenings, we will still be offering an opportunity for students to connect with one another through a new program called Alpha.

This program is designed to create a space for teens to ask hard questions where they can share as much or as little as they want and no questions are off limits. The hope for this program is to equip our students with the tools to be able to feel comfortable evangelizing to those around them, but also to facilitate deep conversation in a non-intrusive way.

Family game Night

April 26

For families of HermNaz Youth, this is a great opportunity to meet other families in the youth group and enjoy community with one another over fun board games.

Snacks provided. Bring the whole family and come and join us for a great evening of fellowship, fun memories, and laughter.

The time is still TBD

Location: HermNaz
