Youth Groups

Youth Group

The name “Youth Group” might sound kinda plain on the surface, but there’s so much behind our “Youth Group programs.”  Mix a group of friends with inspired and energetic leaders, and you’ve got something special!  We’re actively engaging with three goals:

  1. Mission.  We serve meals to the homeless, help with the Pitman Pantry, and do what we can to make a difference in the lives of the people around us.

  2. Learning.    Christian growth takes some time and effort ( Paul told the Philippians to “Work out your salvation with fear and trembling…”).  And so we have Bible Studies, go on retreats, and do other things to help us grow as a group and as individuals in our faith.

  3. Fun!   And, we get together to just have fun.  We kayak, swim, and maybe even throw some snowballs!  And- we always take any opportunity to enjoy a (un)healthy dose of snacks along the way!

Our Youth Group regularly meets between 6:00 and 8:00 PM on Sunday evenings (between mid-September and June).  When we meet, we separate Jr and Sr highs for devotions, but we get the groups back together for activities and fun. We always end the night with a snack provided by one of our parents, too!

Any youth between sixth and twelfth grade are invited to come to all BLAST activities.

Some things to look forward to throughout the year  include,  our  annual Cardboard Duct Tape Boat Race, our very own trunk for Trunk or Treat, a White Elephant Christmas Party, a progressive dinner, our weekend trip to Winter Thaw, mission projects, and much, much more. Come check us out!!!”

All Ages of Youth…

“Youth” covers a quickly evolving age group encompassing a wide range of needs.  So, there are times when we split up into “Junior High” and “Senior High”…

  • Grades 6 through 8
  • Meets in Junior High Room (2nd level of education wing, Next to Last room on the right.)
  • Grades 9 through 12
  • Meets in the Senior High room- LAST door on the right- Education Wing 2nd floor

 

Keeping in Touch…

When not physically in the church building, we use social media and texting to keep in touch.  We keep active on Facebook and Instagram,  but we also keep in contact with RemindMe and weekly email updates.  Click on the below drop down box to view the latest Facebook posts…

Wherever the Youth go on a trip away from our church, parents are kept in the loop by requiring a permission slip.

Havin’ a Blast…

As you browse through this website, you’ll probably notice that name BLAST.  That’s because our Youth Group is always having a “Big Loud Awesome Spiritual Time”!   Here are some pictures our Youth Group having a “Blast”…
