Our Youth Ministry is dedicated to: “Helping the family make and mature disciples!”. The middle school, junior high, and high school years are formidable for teenagers as they grow and mature. It’s at these ages that teens begin to form their own faith, ask questions, and choose friends to make memories with. To ensure our teens learn to live a life wanting to be like Jesus Christ, our youth group provides opportunities to learn about the good news, participate in activities that help them gain confidence in their talents, and experience the strength of living like Christ.
- Learn: Our group meets multiple times a week for Bible study with a variety of teaching formats including lecture, group discussion, application activities, and more. Regardless of the teen’s existing Bible knowledge or church experience, we want them to build upon that base and learn to apply it on a day-to-day basis.
- Participate: Many programs exist to help our young people gain the skills they need to navigate this world and uncover their talents to serve God. Leadership training programs, camps and retreats, devotionals, family-fun events, service projects, mission trips and more create the opportunity to demonstrate their faith in action. Many of our teens also participate in worship services. The programs give them the confidence they need to stay strong in the faith as they approach adulthood.
- Experience: Growing up as teenager can be tough with the pressures and bad influences that come with the territory. This might be the first time your child talks to a homeless person, asks a stranger “what they believe”, or witnesses a good friend make bad choices. Experiencing these events as a unified group and learning how to handle them brings strength and confidence as they grow older.
Hosted by the North Texas LTC organization, our church participates in the annual Dallas convention for 3rd through 12th graders. Students partake in various individual and group events that promote their Bible knowledge and talents. Events include chorus, Bible trivia, art, drama, speech, song leading, and many more.
