The Well STudent Ministry
We happen to think that young people are pretty awesome. They're not only important because of how they'll be the Body of Christ in the future, but we also find that teenagers have more to offer than often give them credit for. We believe that young people are a significant part of the Body of Christ today. We strive to connect our young people to the Body and Mission of Christ. Simply, we look to give our students opportunities to be welcomed and to serve our community and the Church. Our Caring Christian Adults volunteers are connecting points - they act as numerous ties to the entire congregation and not just to youth group. While we love youth group - from silly games to great discussion groups - we truly want our young people to know that they belong and have a place in the entire church, not just in youth group.
Our aim is to celebrate the different phases and milestones that our students walk through. We know that there are many things that speak into the lives of a teenager. We hope and pray that our church community will always be a place of warmth, of truth and grace, and a place where they are loved with the love of Jesus. Middle School and High School is not an easy place to navigate, but we hope to partner with families to make the journey a little easier. If you have further questions, please contact Pastor Chelsea for more information!
Do you ever feel like you’re putting on a show? Like the person people think you are doesn’t line up with who you really are? Sound familiar? Of course it does. We can all relate because, at times, we all struggle with the same big questions: “Who am I? Who loves me? Why am I here?” In this 4-week series on identity, well talk about the answers to those questions as they discover that, in Jesus, you are loved, you are forgiven, you have purpose, and you belong. The youth room opens at 10:30am, as we meet during the 10:45am service.
Rooted Small Groups
Coming Spring of 2019, we are starting Rooted Small Groups. Rooted is an opportunity to connect with God, the church community, and your purpose. During the Fall of 2018, we will be training, preparing, and praying for these small groups, so Midweek is paused. We can't wait to begin these small groups and to see how God uses our small groups! Be sure to keep an eye out for more information and sign ups for our Rooted Small Groups.
Nazarene Youth Conference 2019
Nazarene Youth Conference is an incredible week of worshiping, serving, and sharing lives with other High School students across the nation. This meaningful conference happens every four years. This year, our theme is Love God. Love Others. This sounds simple, but we find that it is not as easy as it sound. Sometimes described as two pillars of following Jesus, we will explore the connective nature of our relationship with God and others while learning what it means to live out His love in our world.
