Share, Strengthen, Serve
That's our mission here in youth ministry. It follows in step with the church mission statement, "Share, Strengthen, Serve." Here's what it's about:
Teenagers fight more and more for who they are, who they want to be, and where their place is in this world, and they shouldn't have to do it alone. As a youth ministry, we hope to draw students into a place where they can learn and mold their faith and their own relationship with Jesus. It's the starting place for all that life might throw at them.
As teenagers come to know Jesus, it's important for them to grow more each day in that relationship. Just as a human would die with inadequate nutrients, so would a spiritual life die with an unwholesome spiritual diet. We have several venues for spiritual growth. These include:
The final part to our mission is simple: engage Christ-following students in the world, both inside and outside the church walls. The amount of serving opportunities are growing as we speak, and we're constantly encouraging students to get plugged in! These connections include serving on Sunday mornings (ushering, greeting, helping in Children's Ministry, worship team, working in the cafe), the annual Feed My Starving Children teen shift, the Community Thanksgiving Dinner for the elderly, and many others!
Our ministry seeks to promote the parents' role in helping their teens follow Jesus wholeheartedly. We encourage parents to become involved in the congregation, but also in discipling their own student(s) at home. To aid in this parent-student faith connection, we've created a parent "newsletter," entitled Parent Pub, which informs parents to the fullest extent on the latest events and news happening in the youth ministry. Check out the newest edition here.
In addition to our regular, weekly youth group on Wednesday nights, we also have a rather busy, but exciting event schedule offered to students. This is also a great way for students new to our church to relax, have fun, and meet our church and youth group! Check out the latest event schedule here.
