Youth

Middle School (6-8th grade) meets Wednesdays, 6:15-8:15pm in the Chapel

High School (9-12th grade) meets Sundays, 6:00-8:00pm in the Fellowship Hall

In both our high school and middle school gatherings we take the Up, In, and Out approach. We want to focus on knowing the Father through the Holy Spirit by way of the scripture - teaching students practical ways to engage with God. Out of a place of knowing God and His love for us, we are able to step deeper into our giftings with His power.

UP - is looking to the Trinity through worship, prayer and teaching.

IN - is the way we do community; encouraging each other and engaging each other through small groups.

OUT - is the way we pour back out what God has poured in us; carrying out the gospel and ministry of God to those in need.

Our nights consist of snacks and games, worship, teaching, and small groups. So come and join us for the exciting and fun adventure God has planned for us!

Youth Alpha course

6-8th grade through December 4, 6:15-8:15pm in the Chapel

9-12th grade through December 8, 6:00-8:00pm in Fellowship Hall

We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions, and share their point of view while eating together and playing games! We are excited to do this very thing by walking through the 9 week Alpha course as a youth group. Alpha is for believers and non-believers, so invite your friends!

 

Our Events:

We host events outside of our gatherings for the youth 3-5 times per year. Our events consist of things like World Mandate, Fall Weekend, Summer Camp, Summer Hangouts, Service Projects in the OKC Community, and such!
