Embrace Youth has two goals for middle and high school students:

  1. To find their identity in Christ, rather than in the world. 
    (Genesis 5:2, Colossians 3:1-32 Corinthians 5:17Romans 12:2)

  2. To live as God called them to live: doing good works and loving one another.
    (Deuteronomy 15:7-8, Ephesians 2:10, Galatians 6:2John 15:12, Matthew 22:36-40, 1 Peter 4:8)

We accomplish this life/outlook change during weekly small-group meetings and once-a-month large-group worship gatherings (described below).

Small-group gatherings are organized by grade level (example given: sixth and seventh graders) and meet in the homes of Youth Minister Josh Hillyer and Worship Minister Jon Myles. Every meeting includes a meal, plenty of lively conversation, biblical teaching, and a structured activity or discussion. Students are building life-long friendships at these gatherings while coming to know and love Christ. E-mail our youth minister, Josh Hillyer, for more information!


Second Sunday gatherings take place on the … you guessed it … second Sunday of each month and serve as a large-group worship night for ALL sixth-twelfth graders. Students eat pizza, sing along with a live worship band, listen to a biblical message, and engage in large group activities. Second Sundays take place at the Auburn Christian Fellowship building (315 S. Gay St., Auburn, AL 36830) from 5-6:45pm. You don’t want to miss this!
