Our Youth Group Advisors are very enthusiastic and always interested in having the best youth group ever!
Among some of the goals for our youth group, we will strive to facilitate a fun, dynamic and caring group of young people who will spend a good deal of time together integrating into the community in a helpful way, reflecting our principles of peace and justice.
The grade level is High School students, Freshman through Senior year and meet Sunday evenings on days when there is church school, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Whenever they are together, and during all of their interactions with each other, they are expected to treat each other with dignity and respect as outlined in the covenant they create together with the YG Advisors.
The programs and activities they participate in are fun, educational, and provide experiences that gives them the opportunity to develop their own spirituality and promote ethical decision-making and behavior. They will have opportunities to choose active roles in our church including, for example, being on a committee and/or ushering for church services.
Teens who are not children of members of our church are welcome to join the Youth Group any Sunday and see if it is a good fit for you. Completed Registration Forms will be required after the third visit.
Activities they have participated in include:
· Youth church service
· Collecting supplies for teen runaway care packages
· Overnight lock-ins
· Outings and special activities within the community
· Midwest Youth Conferences
