During the school year, we have a program called “Fantastic Fridays.” On two Friday nights per month, we get together for a time of Bible memory, a Bible object lesson, skills building, and games. Our kids & teens really look forward to these action-packed evenings, and they tend to be fun for our grown-up helpers, as well!
We also have a Youth Dessert Contest in March, Vacation Bible School in summer, and a Harvest Party every fall. At Christmas, we have a Living Nativity in which the youth can participate first hand in recounting the First Christmas Ever! The Youth Chorus begins rehearsing in the fall for a presentation after the Living Nativity.
There are five Sunday School classes we offer for youth right now. In Nursery class, we listen to God’s Word put to music. The Preschool class covers the most basic of Bible concepts, and we work on learning Bible verses set to Nursery Rhyme songs. In the Youth class and the Teen class, they delve into more intense Bible principles, applying them to life choices and attitudes.
On Wednesday nights at 6, we have Game Time. In the winter, the kids like to play board games and ping pong inside with the grown-ups. However, when the weather is nice, they can be found outside playing basketball, foursquare, or tag.
