Knowing that the future of our country and our church rests in the hands of America’s youth, our church has a large burden for teenagers. In view of this, we offer many different spiritual opportunities to our teens throughout the year to equip them with as many tools as we can for their spiritual development. We would feel privileged to have you partner with us in this vision through a donation to one of the programs in which we offer sponsorship opportunities for our young people.
Teen Camp Advance
An action-packed, Bible-filled week for the young people in our youth program who would like to really go above and beyond the normal and grow in their Christian walk. Many of the teenagers that attend are a part of our bus ministry, and not all of them have the financial means to pay for camp. As a sponsor, you have the opportunity of being a part in the life-changing decisions a young person will make during this special week!
Each November, teenagers from all across the country meet together for a very special week, dedicated entirely to encouraging and strengthening young people in their spiritual life. The week is filled with times of preaching and Bible study, vocal and music competitions, and exciting activities. Sponsoring a teenager during this week will help cover the cost of lodging, food, and the activities for the week.
Special Teen Activities
Our teenagers enjoy getting together every week for times of fellowship and service. Periodically throughout the year, special, extended activities are planned for our youth group to have a day where they can get away, have an enjoyable time, and focus on spiritual growth. They are able to enjoy a day in Chicago, at a local state park, or other local attractions.
At times during the year the youth group takes part in special retreats and trips. In the past, the youth have participated in mission trips to Mexico, week-long trips to various parts of the United States, and short retreats to encourage spiritual growth. Friendships formed on these trips often last a lifetime! While our teenagers work hard to save up money for these special trips, there are some who would be greatly encouraged to have someone partner with them through financial aid to ensure that they can be a part of these special times.
