Youth Tomorrow Night at 6:45 PM

Tomorrow night, we will be continuing our series “Sweetness” with a panel discussion led by Syri Pendleton with Jessica Smith, Kay E., and Ashley Fox. Our hope for this series is to instill at the beginning of the year how beautiful God’s Word is and how relevant it is over the course of our lives as we read it, so we are looking forward to this discussion tomorrow night!


Here are a few questions to consider:

– When has the Word of God been a comfort, or healing, to you? How have you ever been used by God to bring comfort to another by speaking truths of Scripture to them? 

-When has the Word of God exposed you, brought out the hardest parts of you that we often try to hide? How did that help in the long run? 

-How can our small group best encourage each other around the Word this year? What will that look like?

WOL Quiet Time Book Registration is Open!

One of our core values as a youth ministry is to help students develop their own faith by learning how to prioritize spiritual disciplines. Offering WOL Scholarship is one way that we seek to implement this value. WOL Scholarship provides a measurable way for parents and small group leaders to hold students accountable through tracking these spiritual disciplines throughout the year. The goal is accountability and growth in order to, Lord-willing, establish life-long habits. For a breakdown of each category required for WOL scholarship, please read our updated WOL Scholarship Informational Booklet.

If your student is interested in completing WOL Scholarship this year and would like to purchase a quiet time book, they can purchase it online and it will be available to be picked up each Wednesday night!

Find out more information about the difference between the two quiet time books, see the cost of the books, and purchase your student’s quiet time book HERE!
