youth ministry

The teenage years of a student’s life are the most important for the development the beliefs, values, and identity they will carry with them into adulthood. We love teenagers at Word of Life Church and try to make them a priority. Our Youth Staff team is committed to mentoring and encouraging all of the junior high and high school students in our church. We set aside Wednesday night from 6pm to 8pm for our youth ministry. We have space in our basement as a fun and safe environment where students can bring their friends to an awesome Jesus centered experience.
There are video games, ping pong, pool, air hockey, fooz ball, and arcade basketball. We also have a snack bar and cafe area and couches where they can come hang out or do homework before and after the service. Each week the service contains games, worship, teaching on relevant topics, and small groups where the youth staff talk about everyday life issues with the students and pray for them. Each month there is a fun activity for them to meet outside of church and invite their friends to build friendships with other Christians they will see in the hallways at school. They do things like bowling, bonfires, mini golf, movie nights, lazer tag, and much more. There are lock-ins and retreats designed to help the students grow deeper in their relationships with each other but more importantly with God. Level-Up Youth Ministry is devoted to serving inside the church and outside in the community during schedule opportunities throughout the year. A week of camp is also available in the summer for those who are interested.
