What Do We Do?
“The Hub” – Weekly Youth Group Meeting: 701 1st Street 3rd Floor
Every Wednesday night we’ll be meeting upstairs on the 3rd floor in the church from 6:30pm-8pm for Bible study, games, fellowship, and music. While we see these things as being important in the development of our group, we believe that the study of God’s Word should find preeminence in our worship of God. Every week we spend a large portion of time looking into His Word and discussing it in our small groups afterwards. The emphasis of our Bible study on Wednesday nights is spiritual development, growth and maturity.
Christian Education – Youth Sunday Morning Christian Growth Groups
Each Sunday morning at 9:30am, our teens meet at the annex house (SW corner of 1st and 7th) for Sunday school. The classes are broken up into small groups, taught by the youth leaders. The groups are divided by guys and girls. This time offers a great chance for spiritual growth in God’s Word as well as understanding the relevance the scripture has in our lives today.
Accountability – Small Groups
Our teens are divided into several small groups. These groups meet each Wednesday night after the lesson to discuss several questions regarding the lesson and also matters of life, prayer requests, accountability and more. Youth leaders oversee the small groups and often meet with the teens in their group throughout the week to invest in their lives and minister to them in many ways.
As our youth ministry is in a transitional period, we are developing new models and programs to assist in the discipleship of our teens. Discipleship groups are available and will be forming over the coming months. Some of the discipleship programs and opportunities include one-on-one personal discipleship and biblical training, new believer discipleship, intensive leadership training and development, as well as life skill mentor-ship relationships. More to come soon!
Every quarter we offer multiple avenues for teens to serve God by ministering to the needs of others. This includes church workdays, nursing home visits, the Teen Feeds at the Kirkland Teen Center, visiting shut-ins, park clean-ups, participating in worship services and more!
