We have weekly programs for both Junior High (7th and 8th grade) and Senior High students (9th through 12th) as well as a weekly class for parents of teenagers.
Most of our youth gatherings are at La Casa, which is on the southwest corner of 5th and Wayne down the street from the church. On Sunday mornings from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m both the Junior High and Senior High groups meet separately at La Casa. We are using a 6-year curriculum that takes us through the major stories of the Bible, as well as gives us a solid foundation of biblical doctrines.
On Sunday nights from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. our Senior High group, Ekklesia, currently meets at the Town Life Center on Bond Street. Ekklesia is the Greek word for church and reminds us that we don’t just go to church, we are the church, and God has given us a mission to carry out!
On Wednesday nights from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m. our Junior High group, CHAOS, meets at La Casa. CHAOS stands for Christians Hyped About Our Savior and is a fitting description of our group on a couple different levels.
We also invite students to participate in a small group of 2-5 students, called a Life2Life Group. These groups are the best avenue to build deep, lasting relationships with a few peers and a trusted adult leader.
The intent of L2L groups is to get to the place where real life is shared, and spiritual authenticity and growth in Christ are pursued. Each group sets its own agenda and meets at a place and time that works for them. If you are interested in being in a L2L Group, let Pastor Tim know.
ORANGE PARENTS CLASS
Parents of teenagers are invited to join our weekly class, Orange Parents, on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. in the east end of the Fellowship Hall.
We mainly take a look at how we can best parent our teenagers during the adolescent years as well as how to create an environment for them to own their faith and grow deep in their relationship with Christ. We also discuss specific topics related to what’s going on in our families right now, offering support and encouragement to each other.
