Sunday Nights from 6-8pm

Join us for games, activities and Bible study.
Bring your Bible, a friend and prepare to grow close to Christ. 

You know how, when you were a small child, you were taught the holy Scriptures; and it is these that make you wise to accept God’s salvation by trusting in Christ Jesus. The whole Bible was given to us by inspiration from God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives; it straightens us out and helps us do what is right. It is God’s way of making us well prepared at every point, fully equipped to do good to everyone.”

2 Timothy 3:15-17

GROW IN KNOWLEDGE

Sunday School

 

Join us at 9 am on Sundays (6-12th grade) as we dig deeper into the Word,
ask questions, and learn how God’s Word, though written thousands of years ago, is applicable to each one of us today in our day to day challenges. This is a casual environment where youth are encouraged to ask questions and dialogue about how God’s Word applies specifically and practically to our lives.

Bible Study

Youth group is a place where teenagers can wrestle through the theology you’ve been teaching them at home and have it reinforced in a powerful and personal way under the guidance of a youth leader who knows how to ask great questions and point teens to sound truth. This should result in teens knowing and owning their faith on a deeper level.

Community

In an age of bullying, gossip, slander and hatefulness, young people need other young people who can lift them up, encourage them and challenge them in all the right ways (Hebrews 10:24-25).

 

Service Projects

Being followers of Jesus is more than learning about how Jesus loved and served others, but it is also about applying that knowledge to everyday life. Service projects are a way to allow teens to practically apply the gospel in loving and serving others in tangible ways, putting others needs ahead of their own and blessing others.

 

Leadership Development

While parents are called to be the primary disciple-makers of their own teenagers, they also need other godly adults! It’s important for your teen to see that this whole “Christianity thing” is more than just mom’s and dad’s belief system. They need to have models and mentors that reinforce all of the spiritual truth they are learning at home.

Faith & Reason

The Oak Grove Student Ministry is a place where teenagers can ask tough questions and even share doubts and struggles about their beliefs without fear of rebuke. Skilled youth leaders take questioning teens back to God’s Word as the source of authority and help them process through all of the biblical truth parents are praying they grasp, believe and live out.

 

WHY WE EXIST

Purpose

Discipling youth so that they may relate with God through the Bible, listen to the Holy Spirit, live out God’s ways in community, to develop and continue in their relationship with Christ through knowledge and works for the rest of their lives.

For this reason also, since the day we heard this, we haven’t stopped praying for you. We are asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, so that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, so that you may have great endurance and patience, joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the saints’ inheritance in the light. He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son he loves. In him we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”

Colossians 1:9-14
