BLAST is a Christian youth group for children and youth in 5th-8th grades. BLAST is an acronym for Building Lives Around Sound Truth, so we seek to find God's truth for us in His Word and teachings and develop strong ties with each other to learn how to live out our faith in our homes, churches, friendships, community, and world.

We meet each week on Monday nights during the school year from 6:00 - 7:30pm for food, fun, fellowship and explore how we can apply Christian Truth to our daily lives. We also plan activities throughout the summer and year, such as summer camp, VBS, field trips, family outings, and serving others through outreach.
