No matter where you are or what your faith background may or may not be, we would love to get to meet you and possibly partner with you in your journey of faith. To say we’re not perfect is a massive understatement, but our hope is in Christ, what He’s done and what He’s doing in us, as works in progress. Please refer to “upcoming events” for the latest updates on what’s going on in our youth ministry, but in general, these main three things are what we have going every week, followed by a more detailed description of what they are and why they exist:
*Friday Fellowship: Every Friday, 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm, in the Youth Room
*Sunday School: Every Sunday, 9:30am – 10:30 am, in Room 203 upstairs.
*Sunday Youth Service: Every Sunday, 11:15am – 12:30pm, in the Youth Room.
What: Friday Fellowship is our weekly youth group gathering that aims to provide an environment that is welcoming, worshipful, and transparent. A typical Friday looks like us beginning with an active group game to help stimulate everyone’s energy, a time of worship to center our hearts on Jesus, and finishing with splitting into small groups that aim to talk about how we’re doing and reflect on the message/content of the night. Small groups are the key element of Friday Fellowship and are ESSENTIAL to our youth ministry, where they really can build relationships in Christ, experience discipleship with our youth leaders, and walk through life together. We generally invite newcomers to check out a Friday Fellowship first, to get to meet some of our youth, so that a Sunday Service would have a little more context.
Primary Purpose: Friday Fellowship is our youth’s MAIN vehicle in Youth ministry to really interact with God together in small group community.
What: Sunday School exists primarily equip our youth in growing in their relationship with Jesus by training their knowledge of the Bible at large. We typically either choose relevant topics that youth come in contact with everyday, or a particular book or theme in the Bible. So whether it be the differences between Catholicism & Protestantism, what it means to really be an “Evangelical” church, or why Abraham, Noah, Esther, David, Jonah, and Daniel all belong in the same Bible, or why any of this matters, this is for you. Bring your Bibles and wake up early :).
Primary Purpose: Sunday School exists to equip our youth with knowledge of the Bible at large, and a biblical worldview on various, relevant topics.
What: Youth service exists to be a safe, encouraging, and engaging environment for middle school and high school students to worship Jesus in. Every week we meet with God together through fellowship, musical praise, and teaching from the Bible. Often times Friday Fellowship gives a good sample of what our youth are like and Sunday Service is a good sample of what our explicit beliefs and convictions are.
Primary Purpose: Sunday Youth Service exists to be a place where youth can worship in a language and context they can best understand, and to be equipped to translate and embody the message to all outside our Youth Room walls.
