Youth/Teen Programs

Youth Group & Teen Group is a time and place for our Christian youth and teenagers, to spend time with their piers who love their faith, and who want to grow closer to Christ, in a fun and meaningful way.

 

Both groups meet individually once a month to discuss their faith, play games, listen to Christian music, enjoy food/snacks, and occasionally go on outings (bowling, skating, etc.).

 

If your interested in learning more about God and strengthening your bond with other Christian believers, then our Youth Group or Teen Group is for you.

Patch The Pirate Club

Ahoy, Boys and Girls!  Come aboard the Jolly Roger for a wonderful time of songs, skits, Bible lessons and Bible verse memory in Patch the Pirate Club!  We meet during Sunday morning service at 10:30am.

 

Patch the Pirate Club is for all children from 2nd grade through 6th grade.  Sailors will have the opportunity to earn awards and pins for faithful attendance, Scripture memory, and Bible study; they will also learn fun spiritual songs and skits and get to present them in front of our church family during church services.  Our Curriculum is designed specifically for young people by the folks at Majesty Music and patchthepirate.org.

VBS, Summer Camp & Youthcon

Vacation Bible School (VBS), is a weeklong fun-filled summer program, designed as an outreach to connect with children and families in our community and teach them about the gospel.  Each year the program has its own theme that children can explore, which include; games, snacks, crafts, skits and Bible lessons.  There is a connection between God and the theme, allowing kids to discover God in a creative way. 

 

For many, VBS was where they first learned about Jesus Christ, resulting in their salvation. 

 

 

Summer Camp at Camp Joy, is a great way for our Juniors and Teens to get to know their peers, unwind, have fun in a safe environment and be refreshed by the Word of God. 

 

The Junior and Primary camp schedule and activities are carefully organized with young campers in mind.  During Junior Sports and Skill Time, campers learn the procedures and rules of a game.  Counselors direct coordination-building exercises and teach sportsmanship.

 

During the Teen Camp Iron Man competition, adrenaline starts pumping as competitors hustle through the obstacle course, strain their muscles at the shot-put, dash through the cross-country race, and paddle furiously to finish the canoe race first. 

 

YouthCon at Heartland Baptist Bible College, is a three day conference for any youth entering the 7th grade through College and Career age.  During the conference, our youth dive deeply into relevant topics that pertain to their everyday lives.  Additionally, fun activities are enjoyed by all ages to strengthen bonds and build new christian friendships.
