If you’re a student in 7th through 12th Grades, then Youth Group is for you and it starts back up this week. To be more specific, Eastport Bible Church Youth Group (otherwise known as EBCYG) is for you and we would love to have you connect with us.
At EBCYG we offer a variety of opportunities for teens to get involved. We meet up four times throughout the week and I’d love to share more about what we do so here goes. First off, we have Hangtime, which is a community after-school program that meets on Wednesdays. Hangtime is a program for K-6th Graders, but it’s also an opportunity for 7th-12th graders to come and serve others. Our teen helpers work along side of our adult leaders doing everything from homework help to workshops to even teaching during our lesson time. We love having teens help out at Hangtime and this is an incredible opportunity for them to grow personally and in their leadership skills.
Then, Thursday nights are our main night for Youth Group. Each week, we meet up at the church from 7:00pm-9:00pm for games, a worship and lesson time and small groups.
On Sunday nights, we have Living Room, which is a small group for teens that meets in our living room, hence the name. We get together from 7:00pm-8:30pm and all teens are welcome to join us here as well.
Then finally, all throughout the year, on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month, we get together for a variety of fun events. All of our students are welcome to join us and we always encourage them to invite friends as well.
And in addition to our four weekly meet up opportunities, we also do a variety of activities all throughout the year. We play flag football,
We take an annual trip to the City to serve others,
We shop at Target for toys to send to kids all over the world,
And every February we Breakaway for our annual winter retreat in Pennsylvania.
You might be asking why we do these things? Well, mostly because we love hanging out with teens and make it our goal to connect with them as much as we can while we encourage them to connect to Jesus and to grow in their faith.
EBCYG is a Youth Group and Youth Group is for you, that is, if you are an amazing teen. We would absolutely love to have you come and get connected with us. If you have any questions, you can feel free to reach out to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jeremy (email@example.com), my amazing husband who is the Youth Pastor at Eastport Bible Church and we would love to tell you more about our programs.
