Here at Emmanuel, we know a lot is going on in the life of your family: practices, games, rehearsals, performances, tests, projects, family time, jobs, volunteer work, dinners, and so much more. We know that it can be hard for you and your family to find time for faith, but Emmanuel Youth Ministry is here to walk along with your student, 6th-12th grade, as they start to discover, grow, and take responsibility for their faith.
Our goal is to provide a safe space for students to ask questions, make connections, and be themselves.
We have a Youth Group every Sunday from 4:32-6:30 PM. We spend some time playing games, discussing faith and scripture, and if you are willing, have some fun. Hang out afterward and grab some food that members of the church prepared for us! Join us in Fellowship Hall.
After our worship service on Sunday, our church spends an hour in groups to talk and learn on a more relational level. At 11:05 AM, 6th through 12th-grade students will be in C8 where we will be having some breakfast, playing a game or two, and having time to talk about the questions that are on the students' minds.
We are bringing back a highlight from last year! HEAVY APPS! This is a wonderful way for parents, grandparents, and members of Emmanuel to support our youth and say they are important to our community. Sign up for a Sunday Night to bring some snacks, a light meal, a dessert, an appetizer, or whatever you want for the students and leaders to eat while we continue in to talk, play games, and have fun as we end our night. You will just need to bring the food and something to serve it with and we will have plates, utensils, napkins, and cups. The only thing the students are particular about is that it's ready by 6:30 PM! Click on the link below for more information.
