Our youth group’s name is the Ambassadors. This name comes from 2 Corinthians 5:20 which says: “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.” Our youth group tries to live this verse out everyday.
Our youth group meets every Thursday evening from from 5:30-7:00 PM. They begin each meeting with a light meal before playing a game and diving into God’s Word. The Bible studies are typically on topics that teenagers deal with in their every-day lives.
Every month the youth have a Student Ministry Hangout Day. On the hangout days they gather at the church to watch a movie, go to a fun place, play board games, or other awesome things. They also have a Christmas parties and end of school party.
The youth group also participates in annual activities. For example, they go to Louisiana’s Youth Evangelism Conference (YEC) in November. During the summer, the youth group goes on mission trips. The summer of 2016 saw them working in New Orleans for a week.
