Our Mission

Solid Rock Youth Ministries is a youth center for K-9th graders, located in Quarryville, PA.  The mission of Solid Rock is to earn trust through authentic relationships with all Quarryville youth so lives can be changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our vision begins with prayer and seeking God in everything we do.  Our ministry is an arm of the local church engaging youth and families who have not been reached by traditional programming.  We offer Christ centered programming, Bible study, encouragement, discipleship, and community involvement to accomplish our mission.


At Solid Rock our desire is to minister to families and to journey life with them.  The programs we offer throughout the year are, after school programs(K-5th grade), Boys Chill Time (5th-8th grade), NBA (No Boys Allowed) (5th-8th grade), Art and Music programs that are offered throughout the summer, Family Fun Events, Open Hours, and others.   At Solid Rock we care about the youth’s academics and we have time for them to work on their homework or to get help if they need it. Every person who walks in the doors at Solid Rock will meet caring adults, in a safe environment, interested in who they are and encouraging them in their academics, their interests, and in Jesus Christ.
