The years between age twelve and seventeen are important. That is when we learn to leave childish ways behind us and move more decisively toward adulthood. Therefore, we seek to serve the youth of the church in two specific ways. First, we want to help parents understand the opportunity they have to minister to their youth in a way that makes Christ vital to their lives. Second, we seek to create contexts where youth can build relationships, share their thoughts and questions about life, and learn more about how Jesus relates to the challenges they face in a culture like ours.
In serving the youth with these two specific goals in mind, we aim to build a gospel-centered community across generations.
When we meet?
The Bridge Youth seeks to meet once a month during the school year. Youth are also encouraged to participate in our annual Reach for the Goal Sports Camp. For more information, please contact us.
