Youth

Youth in grades 6-12 are welcome to join us for friendship, learning and support as we grow toward Christ together. Come see what it means to live a life for Christ in this day and time, for all your days and all the time! We offer a number of youth activities throughout the week, as well as camps, lock-ins and other fun events throughout the year. Skyland also follows a Safe Sanctuaries Policy to ensure the safety of children and youth.

Sundays for Youth

Sunday School. Age-specific Sunday School classes bring the Bible to life and help youth understand who God is.

  • Location: 3rd Floor, Room 308 (6th-8th grade) and Room 303 (9th-12th grade)
  • Time: Sundays 10-11 a.m.

The Dock. We study God’s Word, pray for each other, play games and just hang out. We also have a Dock Party the last Sunday of every month with food, friends and lots of fun! Follow us on Instagram or Facebook.

  • Location: 3rd Floor, Youth Room 305/307
  • Time: Sundays 3-5 p.m.

Events & Activities

Camps. We attend the one-week Ignite Summer Camp in Covington, GA, and the weekend-long Winter Ablaze Camp in Newnan, GA. These camps provide powerful times of worship and spiritual growth. Many hearts have been changed and shaken by the love of God during Ignite and Ablaze.

Service. We give back because God gave so much to us. We participate in service projects in our community and host events like the Valentine’s Day Carnations Fundraiser and Pancake Supper to help with the cost of youth activities.

Six Flags. Every May, we board roller coasters, bumper cars and all kinds of thrilling rides for a day of fun, screams and friends.

Soccer. Love soccer? Youth ages 16 and up are invited to play with us in a co-ed adult league, the Atlanta Silverbacks, every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Practice is open to all middle and high school students, so come on out if you’d like to learn a new sport or sharpen your skills. We meet in the dining area on Wednesdays at 6:45 p.m. and walk over to Skyland Park for practice.
