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 6:00pm (in person) for food, games, and faith - building relationships with each other and with God. We usually start with pizza or sometimes our Cooking Crew  makes something delicous for us.  The evening finishes up by 8:00 pm and all students are welcome!

Contact our Youth Director for this month's youth group schedule.

Special Events

In addition to weekly youth group, other events throughout the year include retreats, camping, overnighters, hiking, a movie or play, laser tag, and much more! To find out what events are happening submit a request to join our Facebook group.

Service Projects

It's important to us that 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 School. In past years, before Covid, we have made pies for shut-ins. We also served regularly at HomePlate Youth Services. Please contact our Youth Director, Jennifer Schatz, for student ministry information.

Sunday Morning Studies

On Sunday mornings, students gather for a youth 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!).

Don't miss Youth Alpha starting September 2021!  You can join this at any time during the series.

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.
