Training Our Youth Group
Our youth group prides itself of biblical knowledge and Christian living. We focus on training our youth group in the way they should go. We understand that the current climate of the world puts great pressure on the youth, but we also understand that we all find freedom in the arms of Christ.
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”Proverbs 22:6
High School to College
Throughout high school and college, young adults are faced with many difficult obstacles. This portion of the Youth Group focuses on how to live a Christian life amongst the pressures of the world. We understand that challenges surround them which is why we arm them with the truth that is found in Jesus Christ. Upon finishing this portion of the Youth Group these young adults will have a vast understanding of the scripture along with an understanding of how to minister to their peers.
Our Middle School Youth Group focuses on both biblical and maturity development. We understand the importance of the Middle School phase for children, which is why we look to advance their knowledge of the Bible; leading them in the way they should go. In addition, High School and College Youth Group members will serve as mentors to our Middle School group. They will not only lead by example, but create a lifelong friendship through the bond of Christ our Lord.
During this time of great learning we look to teach kids the important life principles taught in the Bible. We understand that a traditional class setting does not alway keep their attention which is why we incorporate fun activities that coincide with the lesson to keep them engaged and learning. We also find that these activities help our Youth Group grow into a family, which leads to lifelong friendships during this earthly journey.
Nursery to Pre-K
During our morning Bible study times we offer classes for even the little of children. We understand that showing them the love of Christ is extremely important to their Christian walk. During the Pre-K phase of our Youth Group we try to teach them big picture stories from the Bible that will engage them and begin their journey to great biblical knowledge. We simply plant the seed and help them create their Christian foundation.
