YOUTH MINISTRY - students in 6th-12th Grade
important: youth times are 5:00 to 7:30 for middle schoolers (6th-8th) and high schoolers (9th-12th)!
Christmas, while fraught with the perils of secular traditions and commercialization, still provides one of the best opportunities to help students understand the reality of God’s love through the events that are celebrated at Christmas. This series will encourage students to keep Christ in Christmas by setting a biblical foundation for the humanity of Jesus, the divinity of Jesus, and the Incarnation, where humanity and divinity collided. Numerous Old Testament prophecies are combined with their New Testament fulfillment events, helping us discover the incredible circumstances leading up to and surrounding the birth of Jesus.
November 17th – Just Like Us
Scripture: Isaiah 11:1-2 & Jeremiah 23:5 & Luke 2:8-18.
Description: Jesus was fully human. This introductory lesson examines the humanity of Jesus by looking at the humble origins of Jesus. He was born of a woman and was just like each of us in every way possible. As the shepherds came to the manger as the first visitors, the birth of Jesus proved that Jesus was for all humanity.
November 24th – Extraordinarily Divine
Scripture: Micah 5:2 & Isaiah 9:6-7 & Matthew 2:1-12.
Description: While Jesus was human in every way, Jesus was also extraordinarily and miraculously God. Jesus’ birth was unprecedented, as Jesus was celebrated by the wise men.
December 1st- Night of Worship
As we go through advent, we need to pause and spend some time worshiping Hosanna.
December 8th – God in the Flesh
Scripture: Isaiah 7:14 & Matthew 1:23 & Luke 1:30-33 & John 1:1-5,14.
Description: Through the incarnation, Jesus became Emmanuel, God with us. This final message describes the most crucial part of the Christmas event by bringing the first weeks together to show how God is in the flesh through Jesus.
December 15th- Youth Christmas Party
Put on your most festive Christmas garb, bring a wrapped gift to exchange ($5 value) and a potluck dish. Don’t forget to invite a friend! This will be a night of games and fun as we celebrate our savior and joy we can experience through Him!
December 22nd and 29th- No Youth! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
We gather together every Sunday evening for food, fun, Biblical teaching, and friendship.
middle school and high school youth from 5:00 to 7:30 pm
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.
