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.
*Come to Shed-O-Ween: October 25
We will meet at the pavilion for an outdoor movie and games. Guys bring snacks, girls bring drinks. Bring a pumpkin to smash or decorate!
The Middle School Retreat was a success!
All of the leaders were wiped out by Monday morning but it was well worth it! 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. We couldn’t have pulled this weekend off without God’s Grace. We had perfect weather that allowed us to be outdoors. We had an unstoppable crew of high school students (7) and adults (6) that gave up their weekends to love on our middle schoolers. We are so thankful for your prayers and support throughout the weekend. A special thank you to all who helped us carpool to and from Camp. Its an hour drive each way and we recognize that you had to give a lot up to help us out. So much to be thankful for!
