Vision for the Youth Group:
We all may have an idea of what the ideal youth group looks like, and every person’s opinion is different from the next as all of these ideas are built on previous experiences. I understand that what I do may be different from what you’ve seen in the past, but I would like to emphasize that everything I do will be to accomplish the goal I have set in place for our youth group.
That goal is to see your teen become passionate about the Word of God. I hope to communicate it in a way that strikes curiosity and passion to learn more, and to change their view of the Bible from a textbook to a living book! If we can get them excited about the Bible, then applying the Bible to their day to day living is that much easier! Of course, there will be more th
an bible studies and preaching at youth activities such as games, food, singing, but the emphasis will be on the Word of God.
The theme I have chosen for our Youth Group is “Upside Down”. It comes from Acts 17:6 where it talks about Christians, and it says “…These that have turned the world upside down are come…”. Christianity lived out turns the sinful world around us upside down, because what we have is different!
These will be on a calendar, and I will send out the youth calendar as soon as I complete it:
- Sunday School (Weekly)
- Wednesday Night Teen Bible Study (Weekly)
- Hot Springs County Youth Rally
- Summer Camp (This will be next summer)
- Youth Winter Retreat (Camp Bethel-Dates TBD)
- Destination UNKOWN (Monthly)
