MONTVALE EVANGELICAL FREE CHURCH!
Youth Belong Here.
Montvale Youth strives to build quality relationships with middle school and high school students through all seasons of life. We believe in the power of Jesus and that His love transforms our lives. Our prayer and our mission is to be a place where the love of Jesus is shared, where relationships with Him are grown, and where lives are transformed.
YOUTH RETREAT 2023
It's almost time for our annual
youth retreat! This year, we're trying a new winter retreat at a camp that has a long history with our church and denomination: Camp Spofford! As always, the winter retreat is a chance for students to connect with God, build friendships, and make
some amazing memories.
Middle School Youth Group
Wednesdays 7 - 9pm (5th - 8th grade)
Our youth groups are all about helping students know Jesus and follow him for a lifetime. Every week
during the school year (Sept – June), we give students a space to be themselves and get to know other
students with fun games, snacks, and social time. Then we spend time worshiping God and hearing a
lesson before splitting up for small group discussions. Each lesson focuses on a Bible passage and shows
how God’s Word is relevant to students’ lives.
HIGH School Youth Group
Thursdays 7 - 9pm (9th - 12th grade)
Like Middle School, our High School group gives students a space to have fun, build friendships, and learn to follow Jesus.
We study not only the Bible but the culture we live in, learning what it means to live “all-in” for Jesus in
Sundays @ 9:15am during school year (5th - 12th grade)
Students typically study a new passage of the Bible each week, with plenty of time to discuss and ask
questions. We aim to understand how each passage fits into the “big picture” of the Bible and applies to
students’ lives. Other weeks, we’ll focus on a particular question or objection to Christianity, giving
students confidence that their faith is reasonable.
Look out for opportunities throughout the year for students to go deeper, like our annual Winter Retreat. We’re also passionate about students putting their faith in action by serving others both within and outside the church.
