WE COUNT IT AS A WIN WHENEVER A STUDENT TAKES A STEP TOWARD OWNING THEIR FAITH BY PRACTICING ONE, OR MAYBE EVEN ALL FOUR OF THESE SPIRITUAL HABITS.
Spend Time With God:
This is an obvious one, right? Sometimes it’s the only spiritual habit we can name. After all, isn’t “growing spiritually” synonymous with “spending time with God”? Well, not exactly, but it’s still pretty important. After all, if teenagers are ever going to make their faith their own, they’ve got to start spending time with God on their own. It means opening the Bible on their own, and discovering how they best connect with God through worship on their own.
Spend Time With others:
Engaging in healthy community can, and should, be a spiritual habit we help our students develop. But “healthy community” doesn’t just mean hanging out with Christians. This spiritual habit is about growing in Christlike relationships with everyone.
Use Their Gifts:
Teenagers need to know that God made them unique, and special, and with really specific gifts, talents, passions, and resources. Then they need to use those gifts to love God, love others and influence the World around them. When teenagers begin to discover who God made them to be, and then use their unique identity to love both God and others, they grow.
Share Their Story:
Teenagers need to learn how to talk about God. Sharing your story is the spiritual habit of making faith a regular, everyday, go-to topic of conversation in our lives. When we talk about God and His place in our story (or, more accurately, our place in His story), it helps us believe, helps us understand, and helps us take ownership of our own faith.

We will join the adult service for worship and then meet together in the youth room, for a deeper more personalized bible study. The youth room is located in the building right next to the main sanctuary.
Wednesday Evenings 6pm-7:30pm
Our junior high/high school midweek meeting where we meet in the main sanctuary for a time of games, food, worship and the Word. We also breakout into small groups for a deeper dive and conversations.
Get Connected. Go Deeper.
We are better together. Join an age appropriate small group and come experience a spirit led life. We welcome open discussions as we seek the truth of scripture together.
