The Gift

December 10 • 5:30-8:30 p.m. • 6565

This Christmas party, open to all students Grades 6-12, celebrates the gift of Jesus Christ through fun with inflatables and fire pits and more, fellowship, worship and loving our neighbors through a winter clothes drive! Bring your friends to this festive event! This year we are collecting winter hats, mittens/gloves, and coats for a nearby high school and community center that we have an ongoing relationship with. We are very excited by the opportunity to bless our neighbors.

Nov. 19 & 26 • No Youth Group. Happy Thanksgiving!

The Essence

The essence of youth ministry is to create environments where students can experience the warmth of God. We want students to know that God not only loves them, but he actually likes them. As a community we simply care for students, nurture their faith, and help them grow in their understanding and relationship with Jesus.

Our Passion

Our passion is to partner with families as we help students find their passions and then use their gifts to be apart of the restorative work of God on earth. Our goal is that their faith becomes the foundation of their lives. Ultimately, this is our prayer: that our students’ lives are transformed by the personal work of Jesus and that they join in transforming our world with the love of God.

Our Desire

Our desire is to help students become authentic human beings as we journey with them in life, helping them avoid and oppose what dehumanizes, and empowering them to reclaim their humanity and contribute to the common good.  We long for them to live the way of Jesus.

Participate

Our hope is to reach students in our community, connect them with their peers and with godly adults, help them grow in their relationship with God, journey with them as they discover who they are, and show them how to honor God with their lives.

"Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity."
I Timothy 4:12
