STUDENT MINISTRY

 
We believe it’s important for teenagers to have a safe place they can go to explore their questions about faith. Our student ministry is for all teens 6th grade thru 12th grade. Our Youth Group program currently meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30pm-8:00pm. But we’re excited to share that we’ll be expanding our youth space with the construction of a new facility here at First Christian Church, which will allow us to offer more opportunities for students to build stronger relationships with God and one another. 
 
UPCOMING SERIES  – Begins November 28th
 
Most people are pretty sure they know the story of Christmas. There’s a baby, and a manger, and some sheep, and Santa, and — well, it’s something like that. But there’s a problem with seeing the story of Jesus’ birth as just another story from the Bible. The story of Christmas isn’t just one of many stories in Scripture – it’s part of the story – the big story of God and His relationship with His creation. In this 3 week series, we’ll help students see how the birth of Jesus changed the story of humanity forever in a way that was completely unexpected, undeserved, unbelievable, and undeniable.
 

COMING UP:

 
Wednesday, December 19th, 6:30-8:00pm

JOIN OUR TEAM

Youth Sponsor
If you like being around awesome MS and HS students, then this is the right place for you! Our sponsors are a committed group of adults who attend our Wednesday night youth group program and help make the evening run smoothly by leading a small group and assisting in other areas such as worship, running presentation program, sound, food prep, leading games, etc. If you would like to explore opportunities to join our team of Youth Sponsors, contact Lance!
Chaperone
We plan a few bigger events throughout the year and some special youth group nights that may involve transportation. Sometimes we need help transporting kids for these events.  If you are willing to be contacted to help as a chaperone and/or driver contact Lance and he’ll put you on the list!
Food
It’s no secret that teenagers like to eat…A LOT! We love to feed our teenagers when they come to youth group on Wednesday nights as many come straight from school or from practices. If you love to bake and prepare meals, we can certainly give you opportunities throughout the year to use your gift! Let Lance know and he will give you some dates to plan on.
Scholarship
We wish we could offer every opportunity for free, but for many of our bigger opportunities like camp and conferences, it’s just not possible. We don’t like to burden families with too much cost over the course of a year and really don’t want students to not be able to attend certain events because of money. If you would like to donate towards a student’s expense for events this year, contact Lance to make arrangements!
