Youth Group is for young people in 6th - 12th grades.
We meet during the Sunday Morning worship service every other week. We are dismissed from the worship service about half way through the service. This year we are studying the same scripture that is being addressed in the worship service. Currently, that is the Book of Acts.
Youth Group kids, leaders and parents have participated in some fun events outside of Sunday mornings. Over the summer we had two "Youth Group Blasts". One at Stars and Strikes and one at Six Flags. The group also joined with the Youth Praise Band to perform at Elmcroft and Brighton Gardens nursing homes as a ministry event.
The girls like to get together for crafts and learning. They tie dyed shoes and decorated wooden initials and had a lesson and discussion on friendship.
Periodic Youth Nights involve games like "Minute to Win It" and "Slickball" with a time out for Bible study and teaching from one of our teachers.
The Youth Group Leaders and teachers include Gamston Whitaker, Joe Crum, Amy Balogh, and Sondra Sparks. We are delighted at the opportunity to partner with the Youth Group parents to help these young people understand God's will for their life.
