All youth aged students are welcome, and we hope you will join us! For more information, please contact Amy Ferguson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the stay at home order here are our Youth Group videos! One day we will all be together but for now enjoy some encouragement from Amy!
Sunday Night Youth Video 6/20/2021:
Sunday Night Youth Group 6:30pm-8pm:
During our regular Youth Group times we have a time of fellowship and fun, our Youth Worship Band lead us in worship, we have announcements and weekly funny memes, a time of teaching, and end with free time in the gym (playing basketball, dodgeball, frisbee), going outside, or small group discussions. We ALWAYS have amazing snacks, music videos playing, and tons of laughter!
Sunday nights are the main worship service program for the youth with all of the elements of a regular church worship service; worship songs, fellowship, prayer, but without the liturgical focus. It is intentionally upbeat and relaxed for students to come to an awareness that God meets them where they are at. They don’t need to dress up or do anything to earn His merit- they can come as they are. Our adult volunteers are there for them to hear how their lives are, what their needs are, and help to set an example and provide a support system for the youth.
Wednesday Night Youth Group 6pm-8pm:
On Wednesday nights our entire church is invited to dinner! We all meet together and share a homemade meal provided by the meal team. The Youth come with their families and oftentimes share a table together laughing and talking as they eat. Around 6:30 there are a few acoustic camp songs led by Pastor Steve and Sue Weaver and a time of reflection on a key Bible verse or idea. There is a time of announcements and prayer and the youth are set free to participate in the Youth portion of the evening.
Wednesday nights follow a rotation of small group study, fun nights, and service projects. Our 2019/20 study focus for the year will be looking at 5 core beliefs- Scripture Alone, Grace Alone, Faith Alone, Christ Alone, and Glory to God Alone. On our fun nights we play games like cards and Apples to Apples, go to Starbucks, and have movie nights. During our service projects we bake cookies for a Prison Ministry called “Kairos”, go to nursing homes, write cards for children in hospitals, pack up essentials kits for the homeless, and prepare “flood buckets” for those affected by flooding.
We have a ton of fun on Wednesday nights and have grown deeper as a group during our fellowship together.
Youth Sunday School 9:45am:
During the 9:45 Modern Worship Service we gather together after we have sung a few songs with the congregation and meet up in the Youth Room. We focus on various studies such as the book of Daniel, Beginning in Jesus and Connecting in Jesus. We laugh, discuss, and share a common ground in our faith. On communion Sundays we dismiss early to participate in partaking communion with our families.
