Youth & Family Ministry

Chain of Lakes Church strongly believes in the Core Value of "Investing in Future Generations."  Below are some of the ways the Youth and Family Ministry (YFM) demonstrates that commitment.

Youth & Family Activities

Note: Covid-19 has caused some programs to be put on hold until further notice. The programs that are currently active are Sunday Circles,  Childcare, and  Youth Group. Watch for more programs. Click here for the Chain of Lakes Youth Facebook page.

Denton Nissley is the Director of Youth and Children’s Ministries. Please feel free to contact him with any questions you have about Chain of Lakes’ Youth and Children Ministry.  Denton, the Youth and Family Ministry Team and Childcare Coordinator Sherri Varsho  look forward to meeting you and seeing how the Chain of Lakes faith community can nurture the aspirations of your entire family.  Click here to Plan Your Visit!

VBS has a Food Truck Party theme!  Monday, August 1 – Wednesday, August 3 from 10am to 2:30pm. Registration information will soon be posted.

Children are welcome to go to Sunday Circles after the first set of songs. Children three and under can go to the Preschool/Infant Room staffed by Sherri Varsho.



I am excited and honored to finally be able to announce our first service venture for the Youth Group. July 6th we are scheduled to go to Feed My Starving Children and package food ingredients. We need to be there at 6:45pm, and finish at 8:45pm. This opportunity is in partnership with the Local Impact Team,

Youth Group usually meets every Wednesday at 5:30pm and includes supper. All are welcome.

A few names have been added to the volunteer rosters for Sunday Circles and also for the Youth and Family Ministry team. Do you feel like you have some gifts that you would like to share with the kids? Let me know! I would love to try and find a place where you fit in this great and meaningful ministry.

I am inviting you to take some time, go to linktr.ee/colpresyouth online, and look for the link: Youth Group volunteer Sign-Up Genius. Upcoming Wednesdays have multiple spots for volunteers to sign-up. Whether you can bring some food, or can sit and take part in helping lead the group, or as we grow, helping to continue discussions at each small grouped table, you are welcome! Please consider a Wednesday that would work for you, and contact me. Any questions – contact me at denton.n@colpres.org. Denton Nissley, Director of Youth and Children’s Ministries.
