Being a teen today is very challenging. You may be facing added responsibilities at home, tougher grading policies in school, and your friends may be changing. Grappling with real life issues requires truth, and all signs point to God. Our goal is to help you build spiritual foundations you can rely on for a lifetime and beyond. This is accomplished through sharing your faith, igniting a generation to serve Jesus Christ, growing in the Word and your relationship with Christ, Networking with other teenagers, and Serving God and His church.
Join our Youth Impact Group on Facebook. This is a great way for our youth & leaders to stay connected. It is a Facebook group to help communication with youth & parents of YOUTH IMPACT students.

Youth IMPACT is going strong!
Although the weather has caused some cancellations, it did not stop a group of 15 people (high school students and adults) from participating in World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine. We went without food for 30 hours while learning about world hunger – and raising money and awareness! Thanks to the support of the Fennimore community as well as family and friends from afar, our small group raised over $2000 for world hunger. (The number is $2430 and counting, as we might still have a few donations trickle in!) This event included a community service component as well as prayer and reflection time, not to mention fun. The verse that now hangs on a decorated sheet in the Church Basement is from Philippians 4:12-13. It says, “… I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” Although the lock-in started with some of us admitting our worries, I can say proudly that NO ONE complained of hunger during our 30 hour fast … not even when we visited with some residents at Good Sam who were eating cookies! THANK YOU for your support and encouragement. Thanks, especially, to Audrey Doan and Rosemary Collins for the delicious spaghetti dinner that ended our fast.
