The Twin Valley Alliance Church youth program is centered around teens understanding and growth in Jesus Christ. We understand the growing pains teens sometimes go through in figuring out life. At a teen's age, they are starting to take steps toward adulthood and at times it can be complicated. We desire to establish a safe place where they can build a stronger relationship with Jesus Christ as they continue their growth through life. Our youth program is geared toward grades 7-12 and we meet on a regular basis on Sunday nights at 6:00 pm. We also have special events throughout the year as well as a yearly winter retreat that is widely anticipated. Throughout the summer we often will partner with other churches in our community for special events as we believe in investing in the community around us. Everyone who is involved with TVAC Youth Ministry has submitted state and federal clearances in compliance with current Pennsylvania childcare laws and TVAC and The Youth Ministry policies are designed to make sure that your child is safe and well cared for.
