Your story matters.

Whoever you are, whatever your story, you are welcome here.

At Sparta Evangelical Free Church, we want to see middle school and high school students understand who they are in Christ, and that their lives have a purpose in the Kingdom of God. We want to invest in the next generation of Jesus followers, and strive to build up our students to be genuine, grounded, and active participants in His Kingdom. We have a fantastic youth program on Sunday nights for middle school and high school, engaging LIFE Groups midweek, and CORE Classes on Sunday during the school year. Look forward to new events like Black Light Dodgeball and retreats coming each Fall and Winter. If you're between 7th grade and college, it’s a great opportunity to be in a positive environment and learn about Jesus in a way that will empower you to make right choices and step into the next part of the story God has for you!

Help us love on our new Youth Pastor, Luke Mihail, and his family by meeting their needs as they prepare to move from Australia to New Jersey. View their home needs here.
