In addition to Sunday classes and regular Youth Group meetings, special events are held throughout the year: The purpose is to build relatoinships that enhance the learning experiences of our programming.
Our special events will look different during COVID, but they will include service, fun, learning, retreats, and opportunities to grow in relationship with one another and to serve others. Below is a look at our Wednesday Breakout Nights pre-COVID. Subscribe to the Youth Ministry weekly email to get the latest information on our special events.
Breakout Nights (Pre-COVID)
Who: 6-12th graders
When: 7:00pm-9:00pm (arrive a little early so we can maximize out time)
High School teens leave the church at 7:00 pm in their small groups. They visit an elderly person and then stop for a dessert or a bite to eat on the way back to the church. Please bring $5-$10. Teens who arrive late will probably need to call their leader or a friends from their group in order to find out where to meet them. Groups return at 9:00 pm.
Junior High teens stay at the church for a game night. We start in the gym with a variety of fun team building competition games. Then we go to the Well for a little more group building and Bible focused devotional. Then we eat pizza and hang out starting at 8:30 pm, which is a good time to leave for teens who need to get home sooner. Bring a friends and $2 to chip in for food.
Sign-up: It is extremely helpful if your Small Group leader knows you are coming in advance so they have enough drivers for your group. Sign up with your Small Group leader the week before or call or email them to let them know you are coming.
