Advent’s Youth Group, called EYC, is for youth in grades 6-12 and meets the first Sunday night from 5-7pm. We play games, look at scripture, pray for one another, and have a great time getting to know one another and God. Throughout the year we also try to love our neighbor through service and to go into the world in mission.
At the center of youth ministry is learning to follow Jesus and obey the things he commanded us. The way Jesus’ disciples learned to do this was by following him around and by trying to do what he did. The best way for our students to learn to do this is very similar. It is by having relationships with adults who are following Jesus who can show them what that looks like and who can encourage them to try it out themselves. That may be their parents, their grandparents, and/or other adults in the church.
