Welcome to The Yard, a youth church dedicated to reaching the teens in our community. We are continually becoming a youth church led by teenagers, for teenagers through loving Jesus and showing His love. We are all about connecting with young people, experiencing exciting worship, and hearing a message from the Word of God that will inspire young people to live boldly for Jesus.

PURPOSE

To raise money to reach people locally, regionally, & abroad. 

WHAT IS IT?

This challenge is where Connect Groups are each given a sum of money and are tasked with using that money to make more money for the kingdom of God. Connect Groups will be competing against each other to raise the most amount of money.

Who ARE our students

At Columbia Heights Assembly we desire and pray that by the time each of our students graduate from the The Yard these principles will be developed in their spiritual lives, owning their faith and continuing to pursue Jesus Christ into their adult life.
