Our Mission and Vision

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 youth so lives can be changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our vision is helping youth and families thrive through a foundation in Christ.

At Solid Rock our desire is to minister to families and to journey life with them. The programs we offer throughout the year include after school programs (K-5th grade), Youth Night (6th-9th grade), Art and Drama programs during the summer, Family Fun Events, Open Hours, and others. We at Solid Rock care about the youth’s academics and we have time for them to work on their homework and get help if they need it. Every person who walks in the doors of Solid Rock will meet caring adults in a safe environment who are interested in who they are and encouraging them in their academics, their interests, and in Jesus Christ.

Our Center

34 East State Street is more than a building for us; it's a tool for ministry. God has provided us with a fantastic facility in the heart of Quarryville, and has not ceased to use this place for the work of his kingdom since. 

If you looked into our window during a typical day of programs, you might see students enjoying air hockey, ping-pong, billiards, or video games. You might see students joking around while eating snacks or getting help with their homework. You might see students gathered around for a craft or a Bible lesson. While some of those things look like merely fun and games - and they are fun - what you're really seeing is ministry.

Whether you're searching for another positive influence in your child's life or more fun programs for them to enjoy, Solid Rock has some great space.
