Youth Group Q & A
When and Where do you meet?
Our Youth Group meets on Wednesday evenings from 7 – 8 pm in the Bennett Room during the school year (September – May). Todd Frie is our youth director.
What do you do at Youth Group?
Our time together is made up of lots of fellowship–just sharing our lives with each other. It’s important to encourage one another in our faith walks. Most nights, there is a game designed to mix it up a bit, and we try to tie it in with whatever topic we are discussing.
Speaking of the “topic” we also have a time of teaching each Sunday. It is always focused on something that is near and dear to the hearts of our students like relationships, prayer, how to keep our faith-walk strong in the midst of a lot of pressure to cave in to the surrounding culture, how to share our faith with others in a loving and real way.
Prayer is also an important part of each youth group meeting. As we pray together, we bond as a group in unity with each other and with our God who cares for us.
We invite students from the whole community. In fact, we encourage our youth to bring friends to our class.
To make all this happen, we have volunteer leaders present at almost every youth group meeting.
We also do local service work, such as collecting food and helping stock shelves at the Community Cupboard, our local food pantry.
We schedule some day trips during the school year as well.
