To love God and people above all else
At nPursuit youth group gatherings we address tough questions about Christianity, and we talk about serious life choices that teens face every day. This relationship-based gathering is designed to be an environment where friends who don't believe in God would feel welcomed and accepted. We do things like icebreakers, drama, worship, videos, creative teaching times, gym & snack hang out time, and more -- but the main thing is our Breakout Groups where adult mentors and students discuss how the topic of the evening plays out in their lives.
Now that The Well is nicely outfitted with new furniture and lots a relaxing hang out areas. Teens are welcome to come early for nPursuit on Wednesday night. They can hang out and play a game or do homework with a friend.
Occasionally, we have unsupervised little siblings slinking around the building waiting for older siblings – No can do! Children below 7th grade should not be roaming unsupervised or in the gym when the teens are. They will understand when they are in youth group, and we also run the risk of a big kid accidentally running over them.
Parents, if your teen is heavy on homework breakout groups dismiss to hangout time at 8:30 pm. Your teen won’t like it, but having them come directly to the car at 8:30 might be a good way to get God time in but emphasize getting down to business with homework when they get home.
