Welcome to Birchwood’s Youth Ministry!


Thank you for taking the time to check out our page dedicated to Youth Ministry as part of the life of Birchwood. Listed below, you will find the most up to date information on everything Youth. If you have any questions, comments, or anything else, please contact our Youth Director at the links on the bottom of this page. You can also “like” us on facebook or follow us on instagram!

Youth Education Hour

Middle and High Schoolers are invited to meet in the Youth Rooms during the 9am Education Hour during the school year. We will be discussing various books of the Bible and different topics that come up in discussion. This Fall, we are doing a focus on an overview of Scripture as a whole through our series called Journey: A Walk Through Scripture.

Youth Group

Every Wednesday night during the 2016-17 school year, join the Youth of Birchwood in the Youth Rooms from 6:45 to 8:15! This year, we will have a combined group of grades 6-12 gathering together to play games, spend time in small groups, and have a teaching from Scripture that is applicable to what a teenager is going through in life. For information on our current series or for leader and parent resources, please click here.

Looking to Serve?

If you are looking to serve with some of the coolest Youth in the Pacific Northwest, then you’ve come to the right place! We are searching for about 3 adults to come be a part of what God is doing at Birchwood and invest in students on a weekly basis throughout the school year. We ask that you commit to coming Wednesday nights and to monthly events or retreats when available. It is not necessary, but encouraged, to attend our Sunday Worship. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact our Youth Director. See the Volunteer Description here!
