Youth Now!

“Born for such a time as this.”
Not the future generation, but confidently living, loving, and growing together NOW!
Esther 4:14

Youth Now meets on Wednesday nights during the school year. We provide a free meal to all students. Normally, students are together for worship and the lesson, and then we break into small groups by age and gender. We have two locations:


Solon Springs

We strive to teach our students to believe that:

  • There is a Heavenly Father who loves them unconditionally.
  • Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of that love.
  • The Holy Spirit is at work within them.
  • God can use them TODAY for His glory, goodness, and purpose.

In an ever-changing world, we teach the core truths found in the Holy Scriptures to define who they are becoming. This leads to engagement in a mission in the world and their own community that is bigger than themselves.

Youth Now! normally meets during the school year, with other youth activities scheduled during the summer.

Note that when school is canceled or closes early, youth activities are also cancelled for the evening.

Child Safety

We take the safety and security of your children very seriously. All River staff and volunteers who work with children have background checks and training in our child-protection policies.

We ask all students to sign-in when they arrive at the church for youth meetings. Once they are signed-in, we expect students to remain on the church campus until youth group is finished and parents arrive to pick them up.

If you have any questions about our student ministry, please contact Pastor Emma at, or the Church office.
