Youth Ministry

A Welcome from Pastor Mark:

Hello! My name is Mark Schearer and I've been serving here at Court Street for over 7 years! The youth program here focuses on relationships -- when we spend time together, we learn (and show) who God really is! If you're entering 6th-12th grade, you're invited to come check it out!

For more information about how to get involved, contact me at

I believe that Christ wants to transform our lives, even in the areas where we feel broken. At Court Street, I work hard to create an environment where young people feel accepted, loved, and encouraged to grow in their relationship with Christ. We play games together, study the Bible together, and lead by example in worship, prayer, and attitude. 



Court Street Café

Youth Ministry has taken over the Café on Sundays! Each week we serve our church before services with free drip coffee and a limited menu of drinks to order. We've given training for youth to take orders, run the espresso machine, and all the other practical skills for running a coffee shop. Reach out if you want to join our rotation of volunteers, or stop by to see us in action. 


Tuesday Bible Study

Middle and High School Students are both welcome to join our Bible Study on Tuesday nights from 7-9pm. Each week include Worship, Study, and Community, but we rotate which one we emphasize. Our goal is to spend intentional time each week growing to reflect the image of Jesus.

Wednesday Group

Middle and High School students are welcome every Wednesday from 6-8pm. We start with a message (roughly 25 minutes), and then transition into small groups to discuss the teachings and apply them in our lives personally. After small groups, we play group games.  Wednesday nights are perfect for students who want to grow closer to God and have fun in community.
