Our goal as a youth group is to figure out together what it means to be disciples of Christ, and to follow what Jesus laid out as the two greatest commandments: love God, and love your neighbor. We are committed to being a supportive community that strives to hold one another up and walk alongside one another in faith.
Sunday, August 27th from 11:45-1pm
Join us for lunch, games, and lots of information on Youth Ministry events this fall! Things will look a little different than usual in September and October while Jenna is on Maternity Leave, but we’ll still be running our Bible Studies and we’d love to have you join us!
DOWNLOAD THE CALENDAR HERE to see when the following are taking place! All are welcome.
While Jenna is on Maternity Leave, join the youth on Sunday Mornings during the first service for a Bible Study and some fellowship, led by volunteers. All are welcome, drop in anytime.
Jenna will be at Panera from 3-5pm most Tuesdays (no school means no coffee hour), and you are welcome to stop by for 10 minutes or the whole two hours at any time. Think of this like open office hours- stop in if you have questions, would like to talk, or just want to hang out for a bit. You can also just bring your homework and have someone to sit with while you work on it for a bit after school. All are welcome.
Once Jenna returns from Maternity leave, JH and SH will once again split for their Bible Studies. JH will remain on Sunday mornings during the first service from 9-10am and will be taught by Jenna and Ben Link.
Our SH youth grades 9-12 will meet for Bible Study on Thursday evenings. We will study passages of scripture at a deeper level, and take time to wrestle with big theological questions. Check the website or text Jenna to find out where we are meeting.
Youth Fellowship is a time for us to gather to share a meal, some fellowship, and a devotional. Some YF’s are for the whole group to meet together (such as our Christmas Party and New Year’s Kick-off), and some are separated for either JH youth or SH youth. Check the calendar to find out when your group is meeting! This is a great event to bring friends to who have never been to youth group before.
We will do a series of fundraisers to help cover the costs of our summer trips. Funds raised go toward keeping costs low for each participant. Please plan to participate in any fundraiser for summer events you plan to attend.
Both SH and JH youth have a lock in during the winter here at church. For the lock-in, we stay overnight at the church and are up late playing games. It is all about fellowship, and we always have a lot of fun.
Our JH Retreat is at Marmon Valley Farms and includes a horseback trail ride, a hay ride, a climbing wall, camping out in cabins, and lots of fun and fellowship alongside our Bible Studies and devotional time. Cost is $60.
Our SH Retreat is in Hocking Hills. We will stay in a house/lodge and participate in several hikes on Saturday to accompany our bible studies and devotional time. We will also play games, make s’mores, enjoy fellowship, and take time to rest and enjoy God’s creation!
