Who we are… “THE Youth GroUP” is our ministry to junior high students here at Grace Bible Church. We are comprised of students from our church along with others from the neighboring areas.
When we meet… “THE Youth GroUP” meets together (junior and senior high) during the first worship service, starting at 9:00 a.m. and ending at 10:30 a.m. On Wedensday nights, the junior highers meet at the church (in room 202) from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
What we do… “THE Youth GroUP” participates in activities such as summer camp, winter camp and student conferences. We also occasionally attend sporting events, go to concerts with Christian artists and visit various parents’ homes during our progressive dinners. Pool parties, Make Your Own Movie Nights, Broom Ball on Ice, and other recreational activities also find their ways onto our calendar from time to time. At our weekly meetings, our focus is the study of the Word of God and worship through song and prayer.
Why we meet… “THE Youth GroUP” has a desire to glorify God. We seek to accomplish this through the faithful teaching of His Word and praying that the Holy Spirit will be continually working in the hearts and minds of our students, helping them to be conformed to the image of Christ.
The theme verse for our ministry is Ephesians 4:15…”Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ.” It is our desire that God will “GRO-UP” our students to reflect His glory to the world around.
What else?… “THE Youth GroUP” sponsors a child through Compassion International, sponsors a Pastor and his family in Nepal (a country where Christians are persecuted) through Voice of the Martyrs and we help support a church in San Quintin, Mexico, that our church is partnered with.
We look forward to being able to do more as God allows. We also provide opportunities for our students to serve through Body Builder Teams (in TYG), CE helpers, and our summer VBS ministry.
