chooselife YOUTH is designed to prepare teenagers to make Godly choices in the most critical years of their lives, so when they graduate they can confidently embark on the next phase of their lives with God as their first priority. We're not here to entertain although we do have a blast. We're here to tell the truth and train the next generation of the church.
November in chooselife YOUTH
This month our series is The Language. The language of the kingdom is different from the language of the world! The way we talk is the fruit of what we put in our hearts; when we guard our heart, the right things come out of our mouth. By the end of the month, our goal is for every student to know and speak the language of the kingdom.
We believe the Word is the most important and reading the Word is a vital way for believers to build a relationship with Jesus. Our weekly YOUTH Bible Reading makes spending time in God's Word each day easy. Featuring a worship song suggestion, scripture for the day, confession, chapter to read, and thought to share, this Bible reading is a great resource for growing in faith! To pick up this week's Bible reading, stop by the Resource Center located in the back of the YOUTH room!
Our 6-12th graders meet up every Wednesday for student led prayer from 6-6:30 in the YOUTH room. This prayer is an opportunity for students to pray for service, the people coming in, and the message. It is the perfect opportunity for students to know the value of each church service and how prayer plays a part in every aspect of our lives.
Our 6-12th grade students are invited every Thursday for leader led prayer from 4-4:30 in the YOUTH room. In a world that is so "me" focused, this is the perfect opportunity for students to stop and step out from everything they have going on and focus on what's going on around them. We spend time praying for our government, our community, our church, and one person each student knows they need to pray for. If Jesus prayed, we should too! Students leave each week feeling encouraged and empowered to be the light in their world of influence!
Every Wednesday after service we meet up for 1 hour and have dinner with our varsity students (9-12th graders). This is a great opportunity to meet new people and connect with people who believe the way you do! You won't want to miss this weekly event (please bring money for food)!
Our next Varsity Nights will be:
November 7: Firehouse Subs
November 14: Subway on Lovington Highway
November 28: Rosa's
