“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.”- 1 Timothy 4:12

 

Teens get enough classroom learning during the school week. We want to teach, show, and encourage an active life with God at the center and that’s exactly what our retreat, trips, and events do! Our goal is that all of these experiences are times that students can connect with God and each other in ways that make it easy to invite their friends.

Pickerington Students: Peace Church has committed to sponsoring high school students connected to Peace and their friends to join the drug free clubs of America in Pickerington schools. These clubs provide education, support, accountability, and rewards to students who are committed to being drug free. This is one way that stdents can reach out to their friends and bring awareness to the drug epidemic in our community. If you are a student or know a student who would like to be sponsored to be part of this club, please fill out the form in the link.
