Today’s teenagers have many challenges and temptations in front of them. They are continually encouraged to challenge authority and to be their own person. Many times parents are at a loss as to what to do and where to go next. Since God has given the responsibility to parents to raise their children to honor the Lord, our goal is to assist parents in producing spiritually mature teenagers who become spiritually mature adults.
Our goal is not to entertain but to educate and reinforce the work that should already be happening in the home. We cannot take the place of parents in training their children to serve the Lord. We are simply a tool to assist families in working toward Christ-likeness in the life of their teenagers.
Our teenagers are challenged from the Word of God in the following areas: their personal walk with Christ, their burden for the lost, and their relationship with others, especially understanding that it is more important to be friends at this age than to spend countless hours focusing on one young man or one young lady. In order to help parents in this endeavor, we offer some of the following ministries and activities for our Teens:
S.N.A.C. (Sunday Night After Church) – A once-a-month fellowship held on a Sunday night after the evening service. The teens gather together for a light-hearted time of Food, Fun & Fellowship.
T.L.C. (Teens Loving their Church) – A couple of times a year, the Teens will spend a Saturday helping our church, especially its Senior Saints, with miscellaneous chores and housework.
Teen War – One week each year, during the summer, we have an evangelistic outreach for the teenagers in our community. We play competitive games, preach the Word of God, and prepare delicious food for the teenagers in the hopes of bringing many to the Saviour.
