Youth Group

Orenco Church's student ministry is IMPACT, where we use God's IMPACT on our lives to make an IMPACT in the community. Impact is for 6th graders through 12th graders. 

We meet Sunday nights at 6:00 pm for food, games, and faith - building relationships with each other and with God. We'll start with pizza and finish up by 8:00 pm! All students are welcome Sunday nights.

** Please note that at this time, due to Covid-19 restrictions, some of our youth group activities are being held online and some are in-person either outdoors or indoors with social distancing.  See our calendar on the Events page of this website or contact our Youth Director for this month's youth group schedule.

Service Projects

It's important to us students also learn the value of service. We perform various service projects throughout the year, including helping Orenco's children's ministry with the annual Easter Egg Hunt and Vacation Bible Xperience. In the past couple of years, we have made pies for shut-ins. We also serve regularly at HomePlate Youth Services as part of Orenco's team. Please contact our Youth Director, Jennifer Schatz, for student ministry information.

Sunday Morning Studies

On Sunday mornings, students gather in Pastor Rachel's office just off the main hallway for Bible study at 9:00 am. Sometimes these studies are video based (like Youth Alpha!). At other times, we discuss relevant and age-appropriate questions of faith and learn and pray together. All students in 6th to 12th grade are welcome for this weekly time of learning (and donuts!).

Life Skills Co-Ed

Over the years, we've realized at Orenco Church that the Church has a great opportunity to help students develop life skills for their life journeys! In the past several years, our Girls of Grace group has cooked and served and even learned "skills" like celebration (we love to have fun!), journaling, and other aspects important for women like self-care. Our Life Skills Co-Ed events focus on these skills too. Our highlights include cooking and making heart-shaped crayons for lower income children. If you are available to help with a wish list of life skills (like changing tires! balancing bank accounts! just to name a couple ...), please reach out to our Youth Director.
