Youth

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. 


2019 Winter "SHEDule"

Our Winter "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

Shed Sundays are a time for community, games, music, and a short talk about Jesus. We are journeying through several parables that Jesus taught. Grab a calendar from the Youth Room for all of our current events.

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.


Coming up

In/Out Shed, April 28

Summer Mission Trip to Honduras

Our 2018 Watershed Youth Summer Mission trip to Honduras was an amazing experience for our team! The team served at the girls orphanage with Honduras Fountain of Life and the local church community alongside Pastor Yobani Alas.
