Willow Avenue Youth (WAY)

"Our youth group at Willow Avenue is a very active group.  We are constantly involved with classes, devotionals, after school hangouts, Monday nights together, retreats, and various other events.  The idea behind our youth program is that while the parents are training up their children in the way of the Lord, the youth program aids in this process to help our youth grow up to be strong, rooted Christians.  By the time they graduate from high school and are ready to move on, we want them to have such a strong foundation in their OWN faith that nothing will be able to move them."

        - Chase Fletcher, Youth Minister

Notes From Chase

  • Our annual Young at Heart Banquet was a hit again this year.  Our youth had the privilege of serving our Goldenaires while playing a game we introduced called Battle of the Ages.
  • CYC is in the books, and what a trip it was!  Around 15,000 total people were in attendance.  We were able to hear awesome lessons from Ralph Gilmore, Chris Miller, David Shannon, and Lonnie Jones.  It was a blessed weekend without a doubt.
