Turner Chapel’s Youth Ministry offers creative and exciting opportunities to help our children grow spiritually, mentally, and emotionally.  The African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child” still holds true today! “And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom and the grace of God was upon him." - Luke 2:40
