We want students at West Center to find exceeding joy in knowing Jesus and then share that joy with others. As we serve students, our goal is to exalt God by reaching and equipping them to know Jesus, love Jesus, commit to his church and make disciples. We do this best through gospel-centered teaching and cooperative discipling with family, friends, and church members. We believe God intends for our young people to be integral parts of the life of the church—not kept at a distance.
Sunday Morning Discipleship
Through youth Sunday School (6th - 10th grade) we aim to build a strong biblical foundation and offer a safe place for students to wrestle with the truths and implications of the Bible. We encourage the High School juniors and seniors to participate in adult Sunday School as they transition into adulthood.
Ignite Youth Group
Wednesday evenings are a time for fellowship, food, games, service projects, worship, biblical teaching, testimonies, and small group prayer. Middle School students meet from 6:00-7:25 p.m. and start the night with a meal. Senior High students meet from 7:30-9:00 p.m.
Game nights, movie nights, go-carting, and other events provide a context for students and leaders to build friendships in a God-honoring environment.
Crystal Springs Camp
Crystal Springs offers a weekend or full week of intentional relationship-building, fun, and biblical teaching. Camp often has a lasting spiritual impact on students who attend. Check the camp website for registration deadlines and the WCB bulletin for information regarding transportation to Crystal Springs. To learn more about Crystal Springs, visit their website.
Conferences and Mission Trips
The youth leadership team carefully selects one or two conferences or mission trips each year for WCB students. These typically combine theological training with outreach opportunities. Past trips have included Dare 2 Share, Lead the Cause, and Utah Church Planting Outreach.
For more information and an up-to-date schedule of events, see the calendar: 2019 Summer Youth Ignite Calendar.
