What a fun February! We joined together with three other youth groups for our first ever multi-church lock-in! 31 students from across the county participated.
This month, we will join in worshiping with the rest of the church in the Ash Wednesday service on March 6th. During the month of March, we will focus on the Lenten season leading up to Easter. Each of us will adopt a daily practice during this season that we hope will not only bring us closer to God, but also to our brothers and sisters in Christ.
The Youth did a wonderful Job helping to lead VBS this year!! Thank you!
Throughout the school year the Youth participate in a few community outreach programs, such as the Crop Hunger Walk, Samaritan Ministries, Christmas caroling for homebound church members, etc. The Youth also take an annual Summer Mission Trip to Christmount Work Camp, which is located in Black Mountain, NC.
Each May a particular Sunday is designated as “Youth Sunday” and all of the children and Youth are involved in worship, serving as leaders for the entire service. They present a skit or play, serve as elders and deacons, read scripture and usually provide the sermon itself. The event is well-attended and helps to connect the congregation with the Youth and children of the church. This year the youth have decided to have a “Youth Wednesday night” July 25th at 6pm. There will be an ice-cream social immediately following the service.
