Youth Ministry exists to prepare students to follow Jesus into every area of life. We do this by tailoring the overall vision and discipleship process of Living Faith to fit Middle & High School students.
We set aside time on the 1st Friday each Month for a youth gathering called 7:10. (The name is the time: 7-10pm.) This is for middle and high school students. We recommend a $1 donation for this event to help cover the cost of the food.
These are “Jesus 101” nights. Each 7:10 we have a student share their God story and we encourage all students to attend and invite their friends to.
We desire these nights to be a place where bands can come and play, students share their testimonies, and to create a top 5 hang out place for teenagers in the Vineland/Millville area.
You don't have to be a grown up to play songs for God. On Tuesday's we have a time set aside to help students grow in their musical skills by practicing songs that we use in youth group gatherings and in church services.
Praise Band Development meets on Tuesday's 4:30-6pm. This is open to all students have musical abilities and want to learn how to play in band that sings praise to God.
Both Middle School and High School groups meet on Wednesday. Middle School meets from 6:30-8pm & High School meets 7-8:30pm.
High School consists of 9-12th grade. Middle school consists of 7th & 8th grade (Sept - Jan) and 6-8th grade (Jan-Aug).
Middle school is unique in that we only allow 6th graders to join stating in January rather than at the beginning of the school. This really serves students in making sure this important spiritual transition doesn't get lost in all the transitions they have to make in moving from elementary to middle school.
Life on life >
Every so often we plan special youth nights called Adventurates. These nights have two purposes: build relationships and bring the Bible to life. We will break up into small groups on these nights, and our leaders will lead in a variety of ways. Some nights might include: hiking, prayer walks, a meal, baking cookies, visiting a farm, and more. These are highly relational and experiential nights.
Every year both our Middle & High School students participate in a district youth retreat called Lake Champion. This event has been life changing for many people in our church family throughout the years as well. We have seen students lives change in significant and dramatic ways in every area of life.
Rather than 'take the summer' off, we intentional ratchet up our engagement the summer time. We do this by providing a camp for our surrounding communities. Students from both middle & high school spend four weeks together learning to live like Jesus and minister to their communities. Find out more on our Summer Ministry page.
Be sure to check out Milestones and Four Foundations. It's never too late to begin to build these into your family life. You can find even more resources by clicking on the pictures in this section. You can also check our our bi-monthly parent minute here.
