Youth is fleeting. What happens to church youth when they become adults? We want to retain our youth in our churches. It starts now, and with what we believe. Youth is a time to be a hero, not an excuse to goof off. Youth is a time to serve, not permission to be selfish. Youth Connect is our way of saying that youth in the church must remain connected to the rest of the church body: other youth, parents, siblings, adults, elderly, young children, disabled, missionaries, and believers living far away. Instead of expecting a separate ministry for themselves, youth are expected to blend in and become the glue – the people who connect the rest of the body of Christ.
Our activities surround three areas of Christian life, that we call Triple S:
Service: to help other people with our youthful energy and strength.
Study: to study God’s Word and what it says for our Christianity even before we become adults.
Social Activities: to spend time with other youth having fun together – on roller coaster rides, or playing youth games, or enjoying snacks.
For example….in February, we served a meal at Milw. Rescue Mission.
For example….in January, we went to Snow Camp!
Grades 6-12 meet the second and fourth Sunday evenings of the month after the evening worship service at 7:15pm. See upcoming events.
