Hope Youth ranges from 6th grade until 12th grade. Our youth group meets on Sundays during our 10:30 am service for Bible study where we facilitate a time of openness, dialogue, authenticity, laughter and sharing. We want our youth to have proper knowledge of the Word, but also to take full ownership of their faith using their own process and thoughts to be best prepared for this world as a believer. Our vision for the youth is as follows:
We want to foster a community of young people that are consciously and consistently engaging with God on a personal level, day and night. (Colossians3:1-2; Deuteronomy 4:29; Matthew 6:33; Matthew7:7-8; Hebrews 11:6; Psalm 105:4; Lamentations 3:25)
We want young people to to understand that following Jesus is a life of complete surrender of one’s life; heart, mind, soul, and strength. Our desire is that they learn to honor God with every aspect of their lives. (Luke 10:27; James 4:7; Romans 12:1-2; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Galatians 2:20; Luke 9:23; Deuteronomy 6:5; Matthew 16:24-25)
We desire that young people continually pray, seek, and grow in understanding about who God is, who God has made them to be, and what their God-given purpose is in life.(Colossians 1:9-14; Ephesians 1:17-19; 2 Peter 3:18; Colossians 4:6; Proverbs 4:7; 1 Corinthians 2:12)
Our desire is that young people will constantly be thinking about how to invest in the lives of the people around them with the love, blessing, and understanding that they have been given. (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 12:30-31; Acts 2:42; John 13:35; Proverbs 27:17; 1 Peter 2:9-10; Acts 20:24)
*We have a school safety official with us at all times on Sundays to ensure that your children are well protected. Also, all of our volunteers undergo mandatory background checks prior to serving.
