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. Our teen Sunday school is for students grades 9-12, and our Wednesday evening youth group that starts at 6:30 is for students grades 7-12.
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 year long study in September of 2018.
On Wednesday evenings, the youth group is studying through the Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew 5-7. This is Jesus’ longest teaching in all of the New Testament. Join us as we delve into the heart behind the Law, and explore what that means for us today.
Upcoming Youth Events:
Join the Youth Group on October 6 for a trip up to Copper Harbor. We’ll be hiking the trails at Hunter’s Point and Estivant Pines.
