JH & HS Youth Ministries

Our biggest aspiration is to tell students that they matter to God, and to the people around them!

 

The goal of our youth groups is to teach, support and mentor participants as they begin their faith journey, seek to apply spiritual truths to everyday living, to form life long Christian habits and to build Christian character.  We accomplish these goals by presenting Biblical lessons, discussing spiritual issues in the context of the society in which we live, and engaging in team-building exercises, social activities and service projects at a level appropriate to the age and maturity level of each youth group.  The leaders strive to create a positive spiritual and social environment at the church and within the youth group between and among the participants, leaders and community.  Finally, the leaders approach their responsibility with humility, cheerfulness, and a spirit that is thankful for the opportunity to assist in the spiritual growth of the next generation of youth.
 

We're looking forward to continuing to create space for our students to grow in their faith, feel safe and appreciated, be themselves, mature in each season, and challenge one another to live the best life possible with friends kept close by and Jesus Christ kept at the center.  Each year, we put together a plethora of exciting programs - such as overnight Lock-Ins, weekend retreats, weekly and biweekly youth group "series" themes, community outreach projects, social gatherings, and more!  In each of our gatherings, programs, and events, our biggest aspiration is to tell students that they matter to God, and to the people around them!

 

It's time to venture off into an adventure of believing that God will do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20), through the lives of our students and families!

 

With Much Thanks,

The SOTH Youth Ministries Team
