Our youth group meets on Monday nights throughout the year and starts with announcements, a game, a snack, and a short worship time. Then the group breaks out into three groups (7-8 co-ed), (9-10 co-ed), and 11-12 (co-ed). In 2019, the 7th and 8th graders talked through the whole biblical narrative, while the 9-12th graders talked through “Unreasonable Jesus”, a curriculum on the Sermon on the Mount, the call to self-denial, and Christ-like living. The group also hosted two guest-speakers who each talked about their experience as missionaries.
GYG also loves to meet outside the church. We try to have a few fun event nights, we travel in fall for a retreat together. And in the Spring we do a large group service project together. In years past we have had a lock in, traveled to Grand Marais, raced each other tubing at Loch Lomond, hosted a 30 hour famine, and joined in the masses at the giant youth retreat called Planet Wisdom.
We’d love for any youth 7-12 grade to join in GYG. You can get more info by contacting our youth director: Isaac Veurink at firstname.lastname@example.org.
