B.L.A.S.T (Building Lives Around Scriptural Truths!)
Philosophy of Ministry: The Bible clearly teaches that parents have the responsibility to instruct their children in the ways of our Lord (Deut. 6:6-9). Therefore, we see youth ministry as an aid to what should already be taking place in home. Every church with a youth ministry must protect itself from the danger of allowing this ministry to supplant the responsibility of the parents. (Even youth ministries like Sunday School and Jr. Church have this potential.) Youth ministry must always facilitate the family.
While many homes are blessed with Christian parents who lead their children in godliness, there are many homes where such is not the case. Our youth ministry seeks to provide leadership, encouragement and discipleship to these young people as well. We have a wonderful culture of discipleship and many of our youth have greatly benefited by being discipled by older, seasoned saints.
Since our primary concern is spiritual growth, the teaching of the Word is central. Every Monday at 7 pm the young people meet for a time of Bible study and recreation at the church. Aside from this there are other activities like mission trips, Six Flags, visiting nursing homes, etc. We praise the Lord for the work of the Spirit evident in this ministry.
Sunday School begins informally, with conversation time for adults and children at 9:00 am. At 9:15 am, Sunday School begins in the upstairs classrooms using the biblically based and God-centered curriculum, "Generations of Grace."
Vacation Bible School: Held the last week of June, annually. For ages 4 through 6th grade, with teen and adult classes as well. A special themed week of Bible teaching, music, games, food, contests, drama, scripture memory, missions moments, fellowship, serving one another and giving glory to God! Meetings are nightly from 6:00 to 8:45 p.m. We end the week with a special recap on Sunday and a picnic after the worship service.
Ongoing children's Christmas choir and play practices, etc.
