Helping bring 6th-12th grade youth into a deeper relationship with Christ through teaching, worship, Christian friendships, and service.
Every Wednesday Night
Our Wednesday night youth group consists of Bible study, discussion, games, and prayer. We have a very diverse group that learns and grows together.
We start off with a game to let them have fun and relax after a long day of school. Then we have Bible study that prepares them to live out what they learn from God’s Word. At times, we break up into smaller groups, by age and gender, so they will be comfortable sharing struggles, problems, and discussing how the lesson relates to them. We end by sharing prayer requests, and praying for each other.
This is a time to bond and get to know other Christians their age. It’s a mix of fun and seriousness. Join us, we would love to get to know you!
First Friday of month @ 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Every first Friday we have a time of worship, then we discuss different topics that teens are faced with everyday and how those issues relate to their faith. We usually have a crazy and fun theme that goes with the night, and games and snacks. All 6th-12th grade youth and their friends are invited.
Life Bible Study (Sunday School)
Sunday morning @ 9:00-10:00 a.m.
There is nothing more vital to a teen’s walk with God than regular Bible study. Students are invited every Sunday, just before church service, to one of our two Life Bible Study classes for teenagers: one for middle schoolers, and one for high schoolers.
Currently our Sunday Teen Bible Study class meets online at 9 a.m. every Sunday. Please contact the church to receive the link so your teen can attend.
Vacation Bible School
There will be no Vacation Bible School for teenagers in 2021
Most years we run a Vacation Bible School at the end of every school year, usually the last week of June. It’s every night, for the entire week, and is a great way to start off summer. We encourage the youth to bring their friends, as our main purpose is for outreach. We have simple, yet thought provoking, lessons that our team puts together in a creative way. We also have worship, recreation, games, hands-on activities, and snacks. We usually have a party on the last night to end the week. This year (2021) we will not be holding VBS for teenagers.
YEC (Youth Encountering Christ)
Winter – Dates to be announced
YEC is our yearly weekend winter retreat. We stay in a hotel in MA, with hundreds of other youth from all over New England.
The weekend includes a speaker, worship, recreation, banquet dinner, meals, and several other activities. The cost is around $130 per person. This event is chaperoned by adults from the church who meet our special requirements to guarantee the safety and security of your teenagers.
July 21-23, 2021
CrossWalk is a summer Christian Camp provided by the Baptist Convention of New England. This year CrossWalk will again be in-person from 2-9 p.m. July 21-23. There will be a number of gathering sites throughout New England. We’ll attend the event in Harwinton, CT. See a youth leader or contact the church for more information.
We have opportunities for youth to reach out to our community and show God’s love through service projects. We:
- Helped out at a homeless shelter in Norwalk sorting clothes to give away.
- Gave and raised funds to sponsor children overseas, providing food and basic needs for them.
- We had two of our rising seniors spend a week on a mission trip this past year through Quest, a next generation leadership development ministry of the Baptist Convention of New England.
