Ongoing Ministry Opportunities:
Sunday School: Meets each Sunday morning from 10:15am-11:15am in the Youth Wing for a time of fellowship, worship, and the study of God's Word. We believe the Holy Spirit changes people through the Word of God, so the Scriptures are at the forefront of all our teaching. Students are placed into either a middle school or a high school class.
They're strange. They're confusing. And a lot of the time, they don't make much sense. But the Prophets of the Old Testament have so much to teach us about Messianic Prophesies which bridge the Old and New Testaments together as one cohesive narrative story of redemptive, covenantal love.
Returning teachers Sue Allred & Susan Bosco are excited to explore the Old Testament prophets with our high schoolers this fall to ensure that these aren't books that we skip over in our Bible reading plans, but rather places where we stop to savor and see the goodness of God in sending His Beloved Son to redeem sinners like us. Make sure you bring your Bible for what promises to be a powerful time in Scripture together.
Confirmation Class: Meets each Sunday morning from 10:15am-11:15am in the Knox Room. Taught by Bryan and Elder Robin Woodard, Confirmation Class is an opportunity open for students in 6th-12th grade to dig deeper into why we believe what we believe. One possible outcome at the conclusion of class is for youth participants to join Hope as members. Another equally valuable outcome is learning more about our faith and finding answers to good, tough questions.
Sunday Night Youth Group: Meets on Sunday Nights from 6-8pm in the Youth Wing. Youth Group takes place during the school year and is a relational time of fun, games, snacks, large group study time and small group ministry. We believe the Holy Spirit changes people through the Word and relationships, so please come and enjoy spending time with each other.
As pastor and author Sam Allberry says, "God's eternal plan for us involves our body. We can't write off our physical life as spiritually irrelevant." God made our bodies and souls intricately connected. On Sunday nights over the next few months, we'll dive deep into answering the question, "What does God have to say about our bodies?"
We'll look at how the Gospel is Good News for our physical selves just as much as our spiritual selves by examining God's good design for human sexuality, how our culture's answers to our biggest questions about these issues aren't good enough or deep enough to satisfy our deepest human longings and how Jesus meets us in our brokenness so that we can experience life abundantly in both our bodies and our souls.
So, come on out on Sunday nights as we dig deep for good answers to important questions in our world today. All are always welcome, so invite a friend (or two, or three) to join us as we discover together "What God Has to Say about Our Bodies."
Coed High School Home Group- This group meets on Thursday nights from 6-8pm at Mike and Sue Allred's house. Led by Bryan, Mike and Sue, please join us each week for dinner, time hanging out and time in Scripture together. All high schoolers are welcome to attend, so invite a friend and don't forget your Bible! We are currently in a RightNow Media study called "One at a Time," a seven week series that challenges us to shake of what's mundane about our lives and intentionally pursue faithfilled conversations with the people God sovereignly places in our lives "One at at Time."
