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!
When we think about Christmas, a few things probably come to mind: the Christmas presents (of course), the decorations, the family get-togethers, and . . . oh yeah, maybe even Jesus. In this series, we'll talk about how to make this Christmas the best one yet — one where we give generously, examine our hearts,
value our families, and allow Jesus to change us from the inside out. Meet us in the youth room during our 10:45am service for games, worship, a lesson, and our Middle School and High School small groups!
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!
Youth Christmas Party
This years Youth Christmas Party is on Sunday, Dec 24th during our 10:45am Sunday School hour! Be sure to wear your best Ugly Christmas Sweater, a unique White Elephant Gift, and be ready for some Christmas games! We will all be together in the youth room for some holiday fun and yummy snacks!
Every fifth Sunday in a month, we intentionally pause our normal Sunday rhythms to worship as one Church Body. Instead of meeting in the youth room for Sunday School, children and teens will come together with family and friends to worship in the sanctuary or in the gym for our Worship Cafe services. Our next Family Sunday is on December 31st. We will resume our normal Sunday rhythms on January 7th, 2018.
