213 is the youth ministry of Newlife Church

213 is geared for 6th - 12th grade students

Our mission is to lead students into a growing relationship with Jesus. We’re more than a youth group—we’re a movement of students, leaders, and parents who are passionate about loving God, loving others, and making a difference!

What To Expect

213 Youth meets on Wednesday nights from 7:00 - 8:30 pm.  

We create a space where every student can belong, even before they believe.  At 213 you can expect:

  • Worship - weekly time to bring us closer to Jesus and recenter on what matters most.  Before anything else, we want to show our students what it looks like to pause during the busyness of life and direct their attention to the God who is always with them.
  • Message - truths from God's Word contextualized to impact our culture.  In every message, students hear biblical truth about who God is, who they are, what following Jesus is really like, and how they can make a difference in the world.
  • Small Groups - life change happens best in the context of relationships.  Students are placed in small groups of their peers and an adult leader who is passionate about investing in the next generation.  These groups process life, faith, and following Jesus together.
