Watershed Youth: Grades 6-12
As our young people develop through their teenage years, we believe the freeing Gospel of Jesus, taught in the context of their own culture and extended through messy and caring relationships, has the power to shape each person as he or she begins to step into independence, decision making, and faith ownership. Instead of binding our young people through outward moral behavioral management, we believe the Gospel, as it roots in the heart, creates an environment for inward transformation.
Our Fall "SHEDule" (see what we did there?) has all the details for our Bible studies and special events! Grab a calendar and watch for special announcements for all the sign-ups!
Sundays: SHED 9am
All middle school and high school students are invited to join us. We meet upstairs in the youth room, 9:00am on Sundays for SHED; hang out, sing songs, short talk about Jesus.
Wednesdays: DIG 6:30pm
We meet on Wednesday evenings, 6:15pm-7:30pm, for DIG, where everybody meets upstairs then splits into small groups by grade and gender to dig through Scripture. Real. Practical. Personal.
Deck the Halls... of the youth room! On December 3, we will be decorating the youth room after the second service for Christmas. Pack a lunch - we'll have cookies, drinks and maybe some hot cocoa! Bring some lights or ornaments and we'll listen to Christmas music while we spread the holiday cheer by singing loud for all to hear!
Youth Christmas Party! December 13th, 6-8pm. In the youth room. We are asking everyone to bring a $5 (max!) wrapped white elephant gift for a gift exchange. Bring a hearty, yummy Christmas treat - savory or sweet! Please bring a warm clothing item to donate to Least of These Ministries!
The Middle School Retreat was a success!
We had a packed weekend full of food, games, swimming, swinging off ropes swings into Lake Lure, hearing the Word, singing, climbing towers, new friendships, and night game adventures. Check out the video highlights below!
