The Well STudent Ministries
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!
Sunday mornings are a great way to worship, discuss, and pray with those similar in life stages. Our youth room is open from 10:20am to about 10:40am as a time to relax, shoot some pool, and hang out before Sunday School. At 10:45am, you'll see a group of students in service for songs. We do this so that we can worship as one Body and not just separate entities. After songs, we head to the youth room for announcements, a lesson, and our Middle School (7th - 8th grade) and High School (9th - 12th grade) small groups. After prayer, we're done by noon.
During September, we're going through the series Activate. During this series, we'll talk about the things that can deactivate and activate our faith! For families, click the ParentCue for some helpful tips on how to connect with your loved ones!
Midweek @ The Waetje's
The school year is busy. Take a break at Midweek! During the fall semester, we're going through the book of Romans. Each night has a wacky holiday that we're celebrating - from Fortune Cookie Day to Pepperoni Pizza Day to Golf Day! Each holiday brings a fun twist to Midweek! Along with our study of Romans, we'll serve in our community, share a meal on certain nights (like our Thanksgiving Meal Night), and have a lot of fun! It's a night for all 7th - 12th grade students! Please message Pastor Chelsea for directions to the Waetje's!
