YOUTH MINISTRIES

Youth Mission

Our mission is to help youth to know God and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Our lessons are bible based and designed to equip students with the tools they will need to live as independent Christian adults who are prepared to live their faith on a daily basis.

Youth Programs​

After school program runs from 1:30-5:30 pm in our youth house during the weeks that school is in session for middle and high school students. Students can do schoolwork or study. play games. work on projects or just hang out in a safe environment. Snacks are provided as well as computers with printer are available for student usage for schoolwork only with limited access. Tutoring is available on request.

Between 5:30-8:00pm we have a light supper followed by a Youth Gathering program which includes social time. prayer time. bible based message or lesson, and at times games, skits and music.

On Sunday mornings we have a small group for middle and high students focused on the sermon, and personal spiritual growth and accountability. Our lessons are designed to help students use the Christian principles they learn to help them relate to and make sense of what they see happening in their every day life and the world.

 

C2 students serve God and show the love of Jesus through service to our church family. each other and those in our community. On Service Sunday, once a month, students serve at one of the three worship services by greeting. ushering. and serving snacks at fellowship time. Students participate in a summer mission trip to expand their understanding of social issues and to share the love of Jesus with those in need. C2 students help serve other ministries of the church by helping the homeless and food pantry. visiting the homebound and helping with kid events.

 

C2 students practice RADICAL HOSPITALITY by welcoming students regardless of special needs or disabilities into an environment that emphasized love and accepting others without judgmemt or criticism.
