YOUTH MINISTRY - students in 7th-12th Grade
When it comes to the Bible, do you ever wonder what all the fuss is about? In this series, we’ll unpack what the big deal is as we discover that the Bible can be a useful and powerful tool that impacts our lives today.
September 24th: The Bible brings things to light.
Note to Parents: Sometimes the Bible brings things to light you wouldn’t otherwise see. When your kid has a decision to make, share about a time when a verse or a quote from Scripture helped you make a tough decision.
October 1st: Memorizing Scripture makes you stronger.
PSALM 119:11: Memorizing Scripture can help us know what to do when it matters most.
Note to Parents: Next time the topic comes up or your kid says, “Someone at school _____ ,” ask, “What would you say if someone offered you _____ ?” Or, “What would you say if someone told you that you should _____ ?” Rehearsing answers ahead of time can help them make the right choice in the moment.
We gather together every Sunday evening from 5-7pm for food, fun, Biblical teaching, and friendship.
Our Mission: To provide an environment of community for teenagers that will help foster their spiritual growth.
How we do this: Our mission is accomplished in two ways. Primarily in our weekly youth meetings we provide a safe, engaging environment where students are given the building blocks for a strong authentic faith. And secondarily we host frequent events outside of church. We do three differnt types of events:
Outreach Events: These events provide an opportunity for students to invite their friends to fun activity. This gives new students a feel for “the church” without feeling overwhelmed in an unfamiliar place.
Spiritual Growth Events: These events happen in the winter and summer over a weekend or week-long camp. We get away from the business of life in order to focus on God and grow deeper in our faith. We use curriculum that challenges the students to grow spiritually, examine their beliefs, and grow closer to their peers.
Service Projects: These events are for students to live out their faith by serving the community. We volunteer regularly at Manna Foodbank, the ABCCM Veterans Quarters, and with River Link.
