QUEST: A Christ-centered youth group for middle school kids. We offer opportunities to explore, learn, and exercise what it looks like to become disciples who authentically walk with Jesus within community. The Quest team desires to partner with and support parents in order to help families grow together as disciples of Jesus Christ.

OTS (Opportunities to Serve):

Tutoring at Harbor House

During the last two school years, Quest supported our neighbors at Harbor House in OaklandQuest tutoring at Harbor House in their after-school program on select Wednesdays.  This was a great opportunity for Quest students to help elementary school age students at Harbor House with reading, writing, and math – as well as offering love and support to our neighbors.  

Check back before the next school year begins to see if we have added a link with new dates to sign up!



Medical Release Form:  Each school year, this form needs to be updated for any student to participate in an event off campus. Please fill in the form online and then print, sign and turn it in to the Family Ministries Office before the event your student will be attending.
