Connekkt Youth Ministry!
We have a vibrant youth ministry for our middle and high school students! First and foremost, we are a relational ministry. We strive to help our youth to build positive relationships with their Creator, their church community and their neighbors. That doesn’t mean we don’t have fun. Because we do! LOTS!!
We have monthly events like foot golf, scavenger hunts, bonfires, corn mazes, pool parties and more. Plus we have seasonal retreats such as a fall camping trip at the lake, winter ski trip and Higher Ground Summer Camp.
On the 4th weekend of each month we aim to participate in a service project. Our main one is at Raleigh Rescue Mission where we prepare and serve a Sunday night meal.
Sunday Morning Youth Service for middle school and high school students takes place every week. The format is simple: after a brief time of corporate worship with the whole church family, students are dismissed for a separate service just for them where we explore our faith through practical teaching, fun ice breakers and small group discussion. Of course any student is welcome to stay in the main service.
Our high school students also meet twice a month on Sunday nights for snacks, hang out time and bible study.
