Wednesday night youth services will be held twice a month combining 6-12th grade students for worship, prayer, discussion and teaching. The themes for these services will further underscore the principles that we desire to communicate through the 7 checkpoints.
Special Events and Outreach
The remaining space available for ministry in each month will be utilized to create more environments that allow junior and senior high teens to have more age-appropriate encounters with one another. These socially-structured events can benefit the ministry as a great introductory stage for newcomers.
Sunday Morning Classes
Sunday mornings will give the students opportunities to focus on many of the formative elements of the Christian faith. Junior and senior high students will meet separately to study the Bible and utilize curriculum that is meant to help them grow roots to their spiritual lives.
Our teens and staff will further emphasize the value and significance of serving the community by planning monthly projects to volunteer with help. As we explore new ways to share grace and love to others, students will be awakened to their own spiritual gifts, talents, and abilities.
Rustproof Small Groups
Rustproof or "RP" is an opportunity for students to join a smaller group of peers from the same gender and in the same general age group. This is the environment that offers the greatest possibilities for students to grow spiritually. RP groups generally meet on Sunday afternoons or evenings and will give students an unparalleled opportunity to examine their personal walk with the Lord and benefit from the care and accountability of others to meet spiritual goals.
The 411 is a monthly letter to parents to keep them in the loop about our ministry objectives and upcoming events. It will include the themes for each months lessons including descriptions of the main points of study. It is our hope, also, that each month we can equip the parents with some things to do at home with their teens. We want to be actively working together with the parents to make sure that together, we can accomplish the right things in each child's life.
