“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.” Hebrews 12:1
Holding firm that whatever we do, we do all to the glory of God, we believe it is our great privilege and joyful duty to nurture and instruct those children God has entrusted to our care. We believe that the primary stewardship belongs to parents and nothing we do should ever replace or compete with their godly instruction. Rather, we aim to equip and encourage parents towards their God-given responsibility. Also, considering that there are times when parents themselves are receiving instruction, we endeavor to use the time wisely with age-appropriate instruction so that the whole body is edified and built-up. In all this we strive to never lose sight of the precious little souls of our children, and we take great pleasure in using God’s gifting for the directing of their hearts toward the cross of Christ.
Youth Group (Pursue)
Our Parent Involved Youth Group is designed to help teens (ages 13 through graduation) to grow deeper in their faith and to walk more closely with God by facilitating topics appropriate for their age range. This is accompanied by thought-provoking action events, worship sessions, and times of fellowship with other youth “pursuing” the Lord. Parents are encouraged to attend with their teen as we seek to run the race of faith together. Pursue meets weekly from September through May on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m.
