YOUTH MINISTRY - students in 7th-12th Grade
With so many incredible stories to explore in the Bible, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that God has been telling one singular story since the beginning of time, from His creation, to our sin, to the good news of Jesus, to our mission today. In this 4-week series, you’ll help students discover the big story of God, their place in that story, and how they can share that story with others.
July 1st – Made to Know God
God has been telling a story to and through humanity since the beginning of time. That story began in Genesis 1. This week, you'll help students see that, like Adam and Eve, they were made to be in a relationship with God.
Bottom Line: You were made to know God.
Verse: Genesis 1:26-27; John 17:3
July 8th – Real Consequences
After the creation of the world, God's story took a turn when sin damaged our connection with God, each other, and ourselves. This week, you'll help students see that, like Adam and Eve, their sin has consequences.
Bottom Line: Your sin has consequences.
Verse: Genesis 2:16-17; Romans 3:23
July 15th – Restoration to the Broken
After sin damaged our relationship with God, Jesus showed up with good news. Because He loved us, He gave His life to save us. This week, you'll help students see that Jesus can restore what their sin has broken, both now and forever.
Bottom Line: Jesus can restore what you’ve broken.Verse: Romans 5:8, 6:23
July 22nd – On Mission!
God has been telling a story to and through humanity since the beginning of time, but when we tell His story we sometimes forget the final chapter. This week, you'll help students see that their mission is to share the hope of Jesus with the world.
Bottom Line: You have a mission here and now.
Verse: Acts 1:3-8; 1 Peter 3:15
We gather together every Sunday evening for food, fun, Biblical teaching, and friendship.
Middle school youth from 4:00 - 6:30 pm
High school youth from 5:00 - 7:00 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.
