Youth Christian Education

Christian Education: 2nd & 3rd Sundays of the Month

This school year, all of our youth are using the “Living in Christ” (LinC) curriculum for Christian education, which contains both preteen and teen options for small group interaction. This means all our youth are delving into the same Bible stories, and exploring them farther using methods best for their ages. We also use combined age options when applicable.

A fresh, timely, and biblically based resource, LinC helps our preteens and teens examine relevant faith and life issues using the latest music, movies, news and current events. Through engaging Bible study, they evaluate their world from a biblical perspective.

Youth use online resources and current tech, like YouTube, online quizzes and “Googling for God” to enhance the experience.

Who: Youth in 4th-6th grades (preteens) and 7th-12 grades (teens).
When: 10:15-11:15 a.m., 2nd and 3rd Sundays of the month.
Where: Room 228 on the second floor of the CE wing. After our opening, we may split into preteen and teen youth for small group activities.
