GETTING TOGETHER TO TALK ABOUT GOD AND LIFE
Grants Pass Church’s youth group meets in a bright, spacious room with comfortable furniture. It is a safe place for youth to come together for praising God and deepening friendships.
Class begins with praise music. The youth lead with singing and accompaniment to set the tone for the weekly focus, making Jesus central.
Significant time is set aside for prayer, to talk with the Creator of the Universe. Leaders emphasize that prayer is a direct connection—the only way to have a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ.
Lessons utilize technology and teach effective methods for Bible study. Regular use of websites like bibleinfo.com help youth review discussion topics and look up Bible verses.
Since youth are experiencing more and more of life at an exponential rate, Bible topics of interest cover acceptance, identity, eternal life, forgiveness, authenticity, seeking peace, and how we relate to others. They will also experience in-depth studies of sections of Scripture.
The mission of this class is to establish, rebuild or strengthen relationships with Jesus—whichever any person needs at any time during their spiritual walk.
Youth are encouraged, as future leaders, to assume responsibilities that will also help them identify and develop their strengths. There are often opportunities to take part in general church service and help lead other ministries.
It’s an exciting ride! There’s never a dull moment when youth get together to praise and serve.
