What is the most important aspect of youth programs? Parents say safety and valuable life lessons. Kids and teens say fun and friends (and food!). Morning Star aims to honor both as a place for youth to be encouraged to live biblically, a place to meet friends and serve, and a place to hear about Jesus.
STARs (Sports. Training. Arts. Recreation.)
Give a kid a ball, coach her in life skills, hand him a paintbrush, open space indoors or out and the possibilities are endless. STARs teaches teamwork, discipline, perseverance, creativity and how to enjoy life — all things God wants us to learn. The STARs ministry brings out the best in your kids, and gives families a place to play together.
“I love the friendly environment. It is competitive but not too much.” – Logan, on the STARs sports program.
At this time, youth and youth leaders/volunteers are asked to wear masks (unless physically active with games) at youth activities.

STARs Art Classes
Art activates both sides of the brain. It improves focus and memory. It gets kids thinking outside the box. It reflects God’s creativity and message. Starting in the arts at a young age humbly boosts kids’ view of themselves and others, whether the next Monet or just a kid who loves to draw.
STARs Dance Classes and Intensives
Moving to music offers kids a way to express their God-given emotions in healthy ways. Learning technique gives them confidence to step out of their shell. Encouraging STARs dance instructors bring the inner ballerina, hip hop or modern dancer out in a way that makes their Creator smile.
STARs Basketball Camp and League
The summer opens outdoor space for kids to shoot hoops, improve basketball skills, and build character and relationships at the STARs basketball camp. Winter brings on the friendly competition of the STARsbasketball league. Both prioritize children, families and Jesus.
STARs Soccer Camp and League
The spring and summer find kids passing and dribbling but not just basketballs. Kicking the soccer ball around the field releases energy, improves skills and builds character. Add Jesus to the mix and you get STARs soccer camp and league play.
