Watershed Youth

*Due to COVID-19, some regularly scheduled events have been postponed. Please check back for future updates!


Watershed Youth: Grades 6-12

As our young people develop through their teenage years, we believe the freeing Gospel of Jesus, taught in the context of their own culture and extended through messy and caring relationships, has the power to shape each person as he or she begins to step into independence, decision making, and faith ownership. Instead of binding our young people through outward moral behavioral management, we believe the Gospel, as it roots in the heart, creates an environment for inward transformation. 


Come Celebrate our Seniors!

On Saturday May 30, from 10:30am to noon, we'll have our high school seniors spaced throughout the Grace parking lot for you to be able to drive or walk through (again, still social distancing) and celebrate our awesome seniors who have missed so many milestone events due to COVID-19. This will be a drop-by event, so feel free to make some cards with advice or a congrats and you can hand them out to our seniors on that Saturday.

Congrats to our 2020 Graduates!

We send out weekly Wednesday zoom links for our small group Bible studies. Please email Bre ( ) or Greg ( ) for links and access or to be connected to our weekly emails.


Sundays: Shed 9am

Shed Sundays are a time for community, games, music, and a short talk about Jesus. This semester we are working through the letter to the Ruth. Grab a calendar from the Youth Room for all of our current events.

Wednesdays: DIG 6:15-7:30pm

During the school year, we meet on Wednesday evenings, 6:15pm-7:30pm, for DIG, where everybody meets upstairs then splits into small groups by grade and gender to dig through Scripture. Real. Practical. Personal.
