We realize the value of investing in our youth.
Through various purpose filled activities, much planning, and many dedicated volunteers, we strive to provide the best youth ministry possible for the glory of God.
Our Mission for Youth Ministries
Our mission in Fellowship Youth Ministries is to intentionally lead students to see God as He has revealed Himself in the Scriptures: the only true God, infinitely glorious and worthy of our worship; to systematically equip our students through the Scriptures to become like Christ; to intentionally reach out to unsaved students with the Gospel; and to support parents to be the primary disciple-makers of students in their home.
We will do this by emphasizing Christ-like relationships; by emphasizing Spirit-led Christian service in the church and community; by creating an exciting and fun youth environment and activities; and by providing avenues for student spiritual growth and student leadership.
Thursdays at 6:00 pm
September – May
T.N.T. (Thursday Night Teens) is for students in 6th-12th Grade. Students are encouraged to bring friends to this high energy night of fellowship, with games, impactful lessons, a fantastic program of music and videos, and life-shaping small group discussions.
In short, it’s a BLAST!
Sundays at 9:00 am
Geared specifically for students in grades 6-12, Route 66 is the systematic study of all 66 books of the Bible.
All students are encouraged to join us each Sunday morning for in-depth discussions with other teens and our dedicated teachers.
Teen Leadership Council
This group of Sr. High teens meet monthly to learn about the many facets of Christian leadership.
They are plugged into ministry according to ‘gifting’ & given many additional opportunities to develop leadership skills through service, workshops, retreats, and mentoring.
Bible Quiz Team
The Fellowship Quiz Team meets weekly to read, study, and memorize scripture to prepare for several local and regional competitions from September through May. Friendly camaraderie, competition, and fellowship make for a wonderful experience, all while students learn to hide God’s word in their hearts.
Contact our Youth Ministries to learn more!
Youth Worship Band
Gifted students who have a desire to lead others in worship can participate in our Youth Band, who lead us each week at TNT.
The Youth Band will also prepare special song sets for Christmas and Easter services, as well as our Youth Sunday service as they help lead teens, adults, and children alike in worship.
Student Life Missions Camp
Each summer we travel to the Poconos for SLMC to connect students to Christ, to our staff, and to each other through small group Bible study, unhindered worship, and activities built around strengthening relationships.
For a few hours each day, students love serving at various charitable organizations in the local community. SLMC is the highlight of the summer, and even the year for many of our students (and staff)!
Missions & Service Projects
It is wonderful to witness our youth take advantage of the many opportunities they have to participate in summer missions as well as special missions projects throughout the year. The list of projects in which our students have served is extensive, and always expanding.
Service projects include:
- Student Life Missions Camp
- Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes
- Support to students on missions trips
- Food Pantry donations & collections
- Serving at VBS, Fall & Easter Children’s events, and other church events
- Various other service & missions projects
