Our mission.

The mission of the Harbor (the youth ministry of FPCOS) is to develop a community of students growing in discipleship of Jesus Christ through unconditional love, in relationship with one another and the church and in service to others, equipped to serve in the world. 


Our students face a number of challenges in today’s culture that is continually trying to redefine who we are and what our purpose is. As our culture continues to become more secular, it is easy for our students to begin to drift spiritually and become apathetic to Jesus. Our world is successfully shaping what students experience and believe concerning friendships, relationships, academics, sports, extra-curricular activities, and social media, among other things.

We believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ speaks compellingly and beautifully into each of these. The purpose of youth ministry, then, is to bring the gospel to bear in the lives of our students. This happens most dynamically through relational ministry that is people-oriented, not program-oriented. The church seeks to disciple and train up our students through regular, intentional contact that is rooted in the truth of the transformative gospel of Jesus Christ. We also recognize that the most effective discipleship starts with parents and is then further supplemented by the church.


Meets on Sundays at 10 AM.

7th-10th Grade:
Gather in the Harbor House as we walk through a study of foundational Christian beliefs and doctrines. Exploring man, sin, the Trinity, the Bible, prayer, heaven, and election. What are the realities of Justification, Sanctification, and Glorification?
11th-12th Grade: Meet in the Harbor House for a 15-week study that will stimulate conversation around intellectual issues that Christians—especially those heading off to college soon—are facing.


Youth Group is 2.5 hours. Typically, the first hour is about games, fellowship, and food. The second hour-plus focuses on worship through music and study.
7th-12th grades: Meets on Sundays from 5:00-7:30 PM in the Harbor House. We will meet August 28 through November 13 (excluding September 25 and October 9). 


In small groups, we delve a bit deeper. It is a place for fellowship and teaching but with a specific aim at prayer and accountability through Gospel dialogue.
They are split not only by age group but also by gender. Small groups meet on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:00 PM during our Rooted programming at the church (September 7 – October 26)
