We have ministries for everyone

Youth Ministry

 

Who’s Calling? “God doesn’t ask us to be perfect….just faithful.”

The Youth Ministry has a precious gift in each young person entrusted to our care. With the endowment comes an awesome responsibility.

The Youth Ministry will consist of the youth of the church ranging from ages 5-18 years old. In reality, the Youth Director and Musician of Music time with each young person is relatively short. Yet the goal is to help the young person become a lifelong follower of Christ through music as well as teaching of the word of the Bible. Our mission is to work with each young person with the will of experience and the inexpressible assurance of God’s presence, grace and unconditional love, and that they will grow in the way God has planned for them. The Youth Ministry will love and care for their wellbeing so much that we want to make sure they are equipped to walk daily with Jesus as they make positive, healthy decisions in their relationships at school, at home, with friends, in sports or at their weekend jobsite. While leaders who work with and nurture youth, there are two pieces to which we need to pay attention as we go about this good work:

  1. Tending youth often requires us to straddle two worlds.
  2. Remember that age is not necessarily an indicator of faith maturity.

The Youth Ministry is geared to provide youth group activities along with the assistance of the Christian Education Ministry by surrounding their times of conflict, anger, misbehavior, discouragement, joy, celebration of spiritual drought with prayer. Providing outside activities to help with preparing, the young people to see God’s hold on them in all aspects of life.

Philippians 3:12 - Not that I have already obtained this or have already reached the goal; but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.

I Corinthians 2:3-5 - And I came to you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling. My speech and my proclamation were not with plausible words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that our faith might rest not on human wisdom but on the power of God.
