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.

Upcoming Events

Who ARE our students

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