Youth

Together Growing in Christ

Through our three youth groups, we help school-aged children connect with peers and adult leaders, and build a solid faith foundation. Plus, everyone has a lot of fun!

SoulFire (Grades 9-12)

We meet about twice a month.  We spend our time in high-energy fellowship and strive to provide a come-as-you-are, safe and welcoming atmosphere where students can gather with fellow Christians, have fun and be nourished in their walk with Christ. We are fully aware that it is difficult to be faithful as a young adult in our culture today, so we work to equip and encourage our students. Our goal in whatever we do — service projects, Bible studies, fellowship events, hanging out — is to relish in our God-given gift of faith and grow together in Christ.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

CrossFire (Grades 6-8)

Where did we get the name, CrossFire?  Ephesians 6:16 says, “…take up the shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”   We need to keep our faith in Jesus strong, because Satan is trying his best to break us. Our faith, our hope, and our trust in Jesus will remain strong when we stay connected to Him. CrossFire is a place where we know our faith will not be compromised in the activities we do and the friends we maintain. Jesus conquered those flaming arrows for us with his death on the cross and resurrection. We’re gonna live for Him!

This youth group is for sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders, and meets once a month throughout the school year for fun, fellowship and community service activities.

“In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.” (Ephesians 6:16)

Sparks (Grades 4 & 5)

The earlier young people develop friendships within the church, the more likely they are to stay committed and grow in their faith.  That’s the philosophy behind Sparks, our 4th and 5th grade youth group, which meets regularly for fun and fellowship during the school year.

We typically meet every other month for a fellowship activity or service project, and a devotional. It is so important to connect students early with the Christian Gospel and a community of fellow believers. Some highlights of last year included Outdoor Movie Night, tubing, Games Day/Rock Band at church, Nerf Wars, fall cleanup projects for church members and ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ at East Towne Mall.

“Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” (1 Timothy 3:12)
