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!
For some, the idea of spiritual habits is probably pretty familiar. Spiritual disciplines, quiet time, devotions — whatever you call it, you might have a few established rhythms of spending time with God. For some of us, we may need a little help from you to figure out how, exactly, to grow spiritually. So in this 4-week series, we'll discover four habits that can help them grow spiritually. The four habits we’ll cover are Spending Time with God, Spending Time with Others, Sharing Your Story, and Using Your Gifts. By introducing these habits to your students now, you’ll help set them up for a lifetime of spiritual growth. 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 The Life of Christ, we'll serve in our community, share a meal on certain nights (like our Pancake 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 House in Ammon!
