Approach the Lost
Our mission in youth ministry is for students to have a safe place to Mature Spiritually, Approach the Lost, all while Pursuing God. This is a cruicial time in a students life and at Memorial we want to encourage the Refining process, to help grow them to the best they can be for God.
There are a number of weekly activities for the Youth. These activities are in place to give them the opportunity to connect with other maturing believers and pursue God together. The main meeting times are Sunday Morning, Sunday Night, and Wednesday Night. There are many Youth Events outside of regular Sunday and Wednesday Programing, for the closest upcoming events, click here. In order for them to go to these outside events you need to fill out a Medical Release form each year: 2018 Authorization for Medical Treatment.
This is our Sunday School for Youth. This takes place after the 9:00am worship service. The Students split up 9th and 10th grade. 11th and 12th grade. 7th and 8th grace. The Middle School and 11th and 12 grade meet upstairs in rooms off the loft and 9th and 10th grade meet downstairs by the gym. These are mainly in smaller groups and focus on the aspect of Maturing Spiritually. For a map of the Church, click here.
Our Sunday Evening are where we try to invite those not attending our church and non believers. The teaching for these nights are large group and simple gospel centered messages. The idea is to make these messages easy for anyone to understand and comprehend and give the mature believers something they can take with them to teach others as well.
The time for Sunday Nights is going to vary each week, but the most consistent time frame falls like these.
5:30 - 6:00pm- Open Gym
6:00pm- Youth Group
Activities end at 7:30pm
During the school year, the youth meet on Wednesday Evenings for a time focused on Small Groups. Activities on these nights are designed to be more in-depth studies of God's Word. There will be a time of games and announcements, and potentially worship if we can work up to it. Then large group teaching followed by small group discussion. The time will be 6:15-7:30pm, starting after the dinner by the church. A couple times a year there is a chance to do some service work throughout the church which will take place on Wednesday Nights.
