Youth Ministry Focus:
The focus of our youth ministry is to teach and equip these young saints for the work of service to the building up of the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-16). The point of this equipping is to make true disciples of these believers, and help them to do the same for others (Matthew 28:18-20). Our youth ministry is led by a team consisting of our Associate Pastor and other adults who enjoy working with teens. Their purpose for this ministry is to see our young people become more faithful worshippers of the one true and living God. We seek this goal through faithful teaching of the core doctrines of the faith, as well as teaching the distinctives of Christians throughout church history who have handed down a body of faith for our maturity and growth. It is only as we know God better that we can love him more perfectly and obey him more faithfully.
Our youth, like all members, are expected to be faithful to the regular meetings of the church body, whether that is the whole church corporately or our twice weekly meetings together as a group. We also encourage our youth to engage in church-wide ministries and outreach.
Youth Ministry Meetings:
Due to current health guidelines, our Youth Ministries are not meeting in-person. Occasionally, the teens participate in a virtual Youth Group hosted by Pastor Caleb. Additionally, youth are encouraged to attend the Growing Together ministry on Wednesday evenings (6:30-7:45pm). Email the church office or Pastor Caleb for more information on these opportunities.
During the school year, our youth have two weekly opportunities to meet. On Sundays we meet for Sunday school. Our teen Sunday school is for students grades 9-12 and meets in the Youth Room (in the office building across the street). Our Middle School Sunday school class is for students grades 6-8 and meets in the Gym. On Wednesday evenings, our Youth Group meets in the Youth Room starting at 6:30pm. Youth Group is for students grades 7-12. (Sixth graders are still part of our Word of Life program.)
