All Are Welcome

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.

 

2018-2019 Youth Events and Activities

2018 September – December Calendar of Events

YOUTH FELLOWSHIP, Sunday Evenings from 5:30-7pm

Youth Fellowship is a time for us to gather to share a meal, some fellowship, and a devotional. All youth grades 6-12 are invited to join us on Sunday Evenings, and we encourage you to bring friends!
SIGN UP TO HELP WITH YF
I need parents or other adults willing to help out at each of our Sunday Evening Youth Fellowship Activities. I would ask you to arrive around 5:15 and stay until the youth are picked up at 7pm. Your responsibilities for the evening will include helping to set up and clean up dinner, participating in our scripture conversations (you will not have to lead discussions- just take part in group conversation with the youth so they get another adult’s perspective), and help to run games. You do not have to do anything ahead of time to prepare. I will send out an email to all who are signed up each week with next week’s lesson and game plan. It would be great if each parent who is able could sign up for 1 or 2 Sundays this fall. I will create a new sign-up genius for January-May when that time draws closer. Thank you so much for supporting our youth!

Sunday School, 9am on Sunday Mornings

All youth grades 6-12 are invited to join us for Sunday School every week at 9am during out traditional service. We will study scripture from the Old Testament leading up to Advent, then from January – May we will study the New Testament. Sunday School is scripture-based learning and is a great place to begin studying your Bible!

Senior High Bible Study, 7-8pm Wednesday Evenings

All youth grades 9-12 are invited to join us for a Bible Study delving deep into scripture and real-life topics on Wednesday Evenings throughout the school year. We will meet in the Prayer Room at church.
