We have a thriving kids and youth ministry centered around fellowship, worship, and service. Join any of the regularly scheduled events we have going on and participate with us in creative, impactful ways that engage your faith with others.

United Youth: Junior High

U-Nites
Grades 6 – 12 (during school year)

1st & 3rd Fridays, 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Life is full of challenges, at our “U-Nites” we offer a fun, creative environment where our students can authentically encounter a Gospel-centered community. It is important to us that our students understand their value and identity in Christ while growing in their knowledge and affection for Jesus.

Squad Goals with Graham
Grades 6 – 8 (during school year)

Mondays, 3:15pm – 4:15pm

Junior high students are encouraged to join Graham for “Squad Goals,” a weekly small group that meets after school fellowship and biblical teaching. No sign-up required!

Confirmation

Grades 7 – 8 (October – May)

*The description for confirmation can remain the same as is currently on the webpage, just remove day and time because that is yet to be determined for this year*

United Youth: High School

U-Nites
Grades 6 – 12 (during school year)

1st & 3rd Fridays, 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Life is full of challenges, at our “U-Nites” we offer a fun, creative environment where our students can authentically encounter a Gospel-centered community. It is important to us that our students understand their value and identity in Christ, while growing in their knowledge and affection for Jesus.

 

NAV’s
Grades 9 – 12 (during school year)

NAV small group (before U-Nite)

1st & 3rd Fridays, 6:00pm – 7:00pm

Moving on from 8th grade to high school is a BIG step. It is our hope that after middle school graduation, students would continue to be involved with OSL United by becoming a NAV (non-adult volunteer). We believe that moving on from middle school has academic, social, and spiritual implications, as high school youth grow into leadership roles at our U-Nites; leading prayer, helping with set-up, facilitating sign-in/sign-out & being a role model that others would follow.

 

Let’s Talk
Grades 9 -12

(upon request)

God never intended for you to walk alone. Our director of student ministries Graham Barber, is available throughout the week and would be eager to schedule an after-school meeting, grab a cup of coffee, or hang out at church. You matter to us. Reach out, we’d love to talk!

Service Events
Our youth served nearly 3,000 hours in the community last year alone! We love Tampa Bay, and make every effort to engage with the great community around us to share our faith and bless others. Join us for new and meaningful service events every month, including partnerships with Ronald McDonald House, Sabal Palms pediatric nursing facility, the Brain Tumor Alliance, the Tampa Bay Rowdies, and other creative groups. Whether you love making meals for our local fire fighters or working with small children, we have a place for you to do something special!

Social Events

We enjoy many off-campus events in our community, from swimming at the beach to rock climbing, concerts, sporting events, Rock the Universe, district retreats, and more. Please contact Graham (graham.barber@oursaviorfl.org) for specifics on upcoming events and locations.

Youth Trips 

Every summer, our youth embark on trips to serve and enjoy fellowship together in different locations. We’ve gone on mission trips to St. Louis, New Orleans, Chattanooga, and have enjoyed the National Youth Gathering in Louisiana and Minnesota. We’re thankful for opportunities to make lifelong memories on these trips!
