Upcoming Events and Programs:

We are going to be kicking off our new youth group year on September 11th. Our meeting times will still be Mondays from 6:30 to 8:00 PM and our theme this year is going to be “Real Faith” as we work through the book of James. We will also be having times together evaluating Youth Culture, worshipping together, exploring apologetics, serving together, and learning from fellow students. It’s going to be a great year.

Hope is doing Operation Christmas Child a little different this year. Normally we may have a youth event where we pack a lot of boxes in an assembly line type fashion or have people make them at home and then drop them off. This year, we wanted to create an opportunity more around the idea of serving together. Introducing our packing picnic. Everyone is invited to come with their supplies, find a table, build our boxes together, and then finish off the party with a picnic. Our desire is that by creating a time and place, we can come together, serve together, and then enjoy the sweet fellowship of being together. Would you join us at 11am as we come together to share the love of Jesus through this ministry opportunity? We would love to have you.

We are excited to be able to gather together once again for a night of fun to all who come. Bring a favorite game to play or a favorite person to play a game with and join us for some meeple madness. We try to host a game night once a month so keep your eyes open on our facebook page for announcements on when the next game night will be.

Side x Side (Grades 9-12) and Sno-Daze (Grades 5-8) will be held February 2 – February 4, 2024. Two great camps, one fun weekend with sound, relevant, Biblical teaching as well as social and physical recreation for each age group. Play broomball on Lake Elim, go tubing on the tube chute, or enjoy some gym time.

One of the exciting opportunities at Hope is for our students to participate in the Youth Leadership Team. This opportunity gives the students a chance to impact the direction of the youth ministry at Hope, to get their hands dirty with different ministry tasks and experiences, and to be challenged and encouraged to see where the Lord has gifted them to serve His body through the local congregation. Applications for the 2023-24 school year are due August 13th.

Our Youth Group exists to Grow and Go. Our first focus is to grow in Christ as we encounter Him through His revealed Word, the Bible. Then, we seek to grow in knowledge as we continue to learn about Him, the world He created, and how to rightly live in this world. Next, we seek to grow together as we experience the true fellowship of Christian brothers and sisters. Equally important to our growth is understanding God’s call for us to go as well. God has called us all to make disciples of all nations and our students are included in that call. This together is our purpose…to grow and to go.
