Identity Youth Week (first week of June) deepens awareness of teens (entering 7th grade to exiting 12th grade) about who they are in the eyes of Christ, themselves, their peers, and their community. With 1,000 different voices telling them “Be anything,” “Do anything,” “Believe anything,” and ever multiplying ways to express themselves, it is our desire to help each other walk with the one who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Each morning starts with worship, followed by speakers revealing biblical truths about who God is and why that matters. Mentors will host discussions, guiding a team of 5-8 students, separated by gender and age range, keeping topics narrowed to the group’s dynamics.
Afternoons deepen the students’ awareness of their part in the world around them through service to our greater community. Helping the local public elementary school with labor projects, leading games and activities for New American children, planting flowers to beautify the community, assisting elderly with yard work, and working together with a other ministry outreach programs will impact people in this 3 mile radius.
Each day concludes with reflection on the conversations and activities. Students will be filled with new experiences and thoughts … ideas that will incite further discussion throughout their evening. Be ready to engage.
