Youth

We meet Wednesdays from 6:30-8:15pm in the youth room. Throughout the upcoming months, we will continue to look at what it means to build sticky faith and how we can share that faith with our friends.  All high school youth and their friends are welcome to join us.

Jr. High Youth

The 6-8th graders will have a class geared specifically for them that will cover different topics throughout the year.

High School Youth (9th-12th Grade)

   Our high school youth will be asked to join our adult classes during the new discipleship time. We see our highschool youth as confirmed members of our congregation and want them to be fully engaged in Bible study with our adult members. We know how important it is for high school youth to have adults in their life that help them grow and mature in life and faith and we see this discipleship time as just one more opportunity for adults to pour into the lives of our young people. The youth will still have regular high school meetings on Wednesday evenings with topics that will be geared specifically toward to their age group.

Youth Mission Trip 2015 – Thank you for your prayers. Check out this video.

 

2016 Youth Mission Trip:

At the end of June, ten youth and two adult leaders traveled to the Nez Perce Native Amercian Indian Reservation in Idaho.  Joining with other youth who were also volunteering through Youth Works, they had the opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through service projects, games and Bible stories.  They were the hands and feet of Jesus as they painted and helped with home repairs, building relationships with the homeowners who were there.  They shared Christ with kids and their families through a VBS like program in a local park as well. Not only were they able to form stronger relationships with one another but with other groups volunteering as well.  They clearly saw God at work in each other and in those around them.
