Middle School Youth Nights
Middle School Youth Nights are held on select Sunday evenings at the Culpepper's home in south Reno. We begin our evening by cooking together and enjoying one another's company over dinner. After dinner, we focus our attention to the Bible and cover topics of interest to youth in middle school. After we discuss relevant passages and question to deepen our understanding and application, we play a game or two to end the evening with fun. Our goal is fellowship with one another, to encourage one another, and study and apply the Word of God.
