Our Youth Group is open to all youth, grades 6-12, regardless of faith affiliation. Friends are always welcome! We often split the group into middle and senior high sub-groups. Each meeting includes a time of sharing and a time of prayer. Our attendance ranges from 10-15 for regular meetings, but can top 30 for special events. We typically meet every other week on Sundays and enjoy a wide variety of activities, including theme nights (topical discussion and activities), game nights, dinners (including progressive dinners and hosted dinners) and service projects. We also enjoy outings to the beach, Splish Splash, Six Flags, the Bronx Zoo, harvest festivals and other fun places. This past summer we also went to the Creation Festival in Pennsylvania and a mission trip to the Adirondack Mountains.
Sunday, April 7, 5:00-6:30 p.m. ~ Faith in a Box. This is a mature faith discussion that is especially recommended for those who want to go a little deeper in their faith.
Sunday, April 21, 11:30-12:30 ~ Scavenger Hunt. A fun event that takes the group around town looking for clues!
Sunday, May 5, 3-8 ~ Breakfast for Dinner. The proceeds of this annual fundraiser will go toward food and transportation for Creationfest.
Saturday, June 1 ~ Six Flags! We now have a second driver (Brian M.) so IT’S ON! Space will be limited so please sign up asap!
Wednesday – Saturday, June 26-29 ~ Creationfest! The trip is now confirmed as Kelly has agreed to be our second adult! Tickets are currently $105.
Every couple months, the youth are in charge of the worship service. These services are a combination of messages, skits and music. In addition to popular Christian songs, we’ve sung songs by artists including Mumford & Sons, Kris Allen, Michael Buble, Selena Gomez, My Chemical Romance, Green Day, Coldplay and fun. Our last Youth Service was held on April 28 and it was the highest-attended non-holiday service of the year to date!
