Youth

Youth

We exist for students to meet Jesus, grow in their relationship with Him (through Bible studies, service opportunities, discipleship, camps/retreats...), share his love in action and truth, and worship Him in everything we do.

Youth Group: Wednesday nights

Youth group meets on Wednesday nights from 7-9 pm at Harvest. All students 6th-12th grade are welcome! We are asking that students wear masks and social distance.

Recently, we've placed an emphasis on small groups as we recognize the importance for students to have social interaction with their peers right now. Small groups meet based on gender and age. We're doing a lot of the same activities as before, with some adjustments so we can keep everyone healthy and be responsible.

Sunday Mornings

We value students as a part of the body of Christ and want to encourage them to participate in fellowship and serving on Sunday mornings. Middle School and High School students meet for Sunday school every other Sunday during the school year (in Room 5). They start in the service and are dismissed from there. They will be in the service throughout the summer, and will resume the Sunday school schedule in the fall.

On the weeks they don't have Sunday school, we encourage them to take notes (provided on Sunday mornings) to help participate in the discussion the following week. We also have several students who serve the body on the Music Team or Audio/Visual Team. 

 

Huddles

Once or twice a month, students are invited to activities outside of Wednesday nights where they get to hang out together around different activities, often including short teaching and application from Scripture. Middle school and high school girls are all together, and high school and middle school boys each have separate times. These events are most often advertised at youth group or directly to the students or parents.
