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:
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.)
Current Youth Studies:
On Sunday mornings, during the Sunday school hour, our teens are walking through a chronological study of the whole Bible. Join us as we explore how the entirety of the Bible points to the person and work of Jesus Christ.
We began this study in September of 2018 and will wrap things up mid-February 2020.
We began this study in fall 2019.
