Encounter Youth meets every
Wednesday night during the school year from 7 pm to 8:30 pm. The group is open
to teens attending 6th through 12th grade. Our vision is
love God; build teens; change lives. We strive to connect teens with the Lord
through the following areas: Connect, Grow, Serve, Go and Worship.
Connect: Teens will connect with the Lord through fellowship,
personal devotions, Spirit-empowered discipleship, worship, prayer, Bible
lessons and fun. In turn teens will develop connections with other believers
and develop a desire to connect others in the community to Jesus.
Encounter Youth is much more
than Wednesday evening services. Teens will have the opportunity to join in on
summer camp, Encounter Youth Convention, Fine Arts, and other discipleship
opportunities throughout the course of the year.
Grow: Teens will understand God’s love for them through
Spirit-empowered discipleship and apply spiritual disciplines in their daily
Serve: Teens will discover their spiritual giftings and
talents and use those through service in the Church and ministering to
Go: Teens who love God will in turn develop a love for
others who do not attend church. They will be challenged to go make disciples
in the community and the world through personal evangelism, missions and
Worship: Teens will experience worship time on Wednesday nights
and be challenged to incorporate the same worship in their daily lives.
There is also an Encounter
Youth Facebook page where you can get update information and notifications.
